Verona is one of the most beautiful city of Italy, quite near Milano and Venice (2 hours by train). It is a city very reach of history; there are important heritage of Roman Age (the ancient Theatre called "Arena"), of Middle Age (the ancient Castle named "Castelvecchio") and more. Obviously, Verona is also the city of "Romeo and Juliet", the tragedy of William Shakespeare; infact Verona is called the city of Love. We will offer to our guest some daily trips in some cities or locations near Verona.
As all over the world is known italian culture is very important in many aspects like literature, arts, history .... but cultural exchange includes also food and wine. Verona indeed is very famous for typical dishes like "risotto" and important wine like Valpolicella.We like to cook in our home and offer to our guest typical dishes.
The help we need is a person who can stay with our kids some hours in a day, takes kids to school, cook/buy somethings (not everyday), do the school homework with the kids, talk in english with them.
