Groups

Just a few months from its opening, the first Verona Minor Hierusalem itinerary was already attracting many visitors from outside the city and from abroad. The “complete package” offers a good opportunity for groups to discover areas that are off the tourist-beaten path, but, nonetheless, spectacular and certainly worth spending at least a few hours more in our city.

The complete itinerary is about 3.5 km long and runs along the outer bend of the river, between Colle di San Pietro, the Roman Theater and the old district of Veronetta, in an area of great environmental and urban value.

For more information and booking, please send an email to: visite@veronaminorhierusalem.itor contact the San Pietro Martire Infopint in via Sant’Alessio 34.
