7 Things to Do In Verona

Whether you fancy yourself a Romeo or a Juliet, Verona is a beautiful city with plenty of historic spots to rejuvenate your romantic side. Shakespeare didn’t set three of his plays in this city for nothing. Tour of our list of the top attractions of Verona.

Piazza delle Erbe

Feast on vibrant fruits and vegetables, then stop to appreciate medieval architecture in Verona's ancient square, where the fountain of Madonna Verona has stood since 1386.

Basilica of San Zeno

The Basilica of San Zeno is not just for lovers, but it may inspire you to visit the crypt and behold the setting of Romeo and Juliet’s marriage with your own eyes.

Arena di Verona

The magic of the performing arts imbued in the bricks and red marble of the Verona Arena is apparent in every whisper from the stage, no matter which concentric tier you choose.

Castelvecchio Bridge

Also known as Ponte di Castel Vecchio or Scaliger Bridge, the Castelvecchio Bridge boasted the world’s largest span at the time of its construction in the 14th century

Torre dei Lamberti

At 84 meters, the Torre dei Lamberti is the largest medieval tower in the city and it takes nearly 400 steps to get to the viewing platform. Luckily there is also an elevator!

Scaliger Tombs

Don't forget to tour the Scaliger tombs. Art historians will recognize the Gothic style of the architecture in both the tomb and the chapel of Santa Maria Antica.

Castelvecchio

Enjoy the medieval castle in its present restored state and take a stroll through the eponymous museum to get a closer look at a collection of Veronian artifacts.

Planning Your Verona Visit

How to Get Around?

Verona is a city meant for lovers on foot. Feel free to ditch the car and bid farewell to the confines of public transport, the city of Verona is small enough to traverse without mechanical aid. Of course, should you decide to visit Lake Garda, there are both ferries and buses to aid you on your journey.

Where to Eat Well in Verona?

For even less than twenty euros, it's possible to eat like a royal in Verona. Take a backstreet or two, and find your choice of Trattoria, Caffè, or Osteria. Don’t be shocked to eat communally with strangers; Verona favors many modes of degustation.

Where to Stay?

There are a myriad of winding streets to meander through, and when it comes to home comforts, Verona is not lacking. Piazza delle Erbe is the beating lover’s heart in this Italian city, and staying nearby puts you right in the center of town.
