Verona and Surroundings

Verona, located in northern Italy, is the capital of the region of Veneto.  In the surroundings of Verona, you can explore the hills and mountains, the breathtaking Lake Garda, the Venetian Lagoon, and much more. A nice twenty-minute walk will take you to le Torricelle and Castel San Pietro. From there you can enjoy a superb view of the city and its river. If you don’t wish to reach the view on foot, you can also use the recently reopened funicular. In fact, the hills of Veneto are covered with vineyards. Valpolicella and Soave are the birthplaces of some of the most delicious Italian wines. Wine producers often host wine-tasting events, which could be a great plan for an alternative afternoon or weekend.

Verona is also a great location if you want to explore a variety of Italian cities. Mantua, a tiny medieval jewel, is located 40 km from Verona. Milan, Venice, and Bologna are only around one hour by train (Verona Porta Nuova train station is one of the most important Italian ones)!

Best Things to Do in Verona

1) Piazza Bra and the Arena

Piazza Bra is the widest square in Verona. It is surrounded by colorful buildings and restaurants. On its right, you will find Palazzo della Gran Guardia and Palazzo Barbieri, and in the center, you can admire the spectacular Arena. The Arena is probably the best-preserved Roman Amphitheatre in the world and has the biggest open-air stage. Nowadays, it still hosts concerts and musicals during the magnificent Opera season.

2) Piazza Erbe

Not to be missed: this square will fascinate you with its charming atmosphere, the quality of the architecture that surrounds it, and, most of all, the decorations on the ancient facades. In the middle of this piazza, you will find fountains, marble statues, and, in most seasons, a small open-air market. You can also choose to go to one of the many cafes and restaurants that run along the square to enjoy a nice break.

3) Ponte Pietra

This is a pedestrian stone bridge that we recommend seeing both for its interesting history and for the scenery that it offers. Ponte Pietra was built by the Romans and has survived centuries of floods and attacks. It was even bombed during World War II, but one of the arches remained standing. In 1959 the reconstructed bridge was inaugurated.

From Ponte Pietra, you can enjoy the sound of the river Adige which flows directly under it and the breathtaking view of the hills that surround Verona. On Ponte Pietra, you can also stop to taste delicious ice cream, which you can purchase in one of the two amazing gelaterie nearby.

4) Piazza dei Signori

This square is steeped in history and stands out for its aristocratic but cozy feel. We recommend reaching Piazza dei Signori by passing through a narrow, hidden path located in the middle of Case Mazzanti, where you will feel immersed in its rich history. In the center of the square stands the statue of Dante Alighieri, built in 1865 to celebrate the sixth centenary of the birth of the great poet, who during his exile from Florence was a long-term guest in Verona.

5) Castelvecchio

Castelvecchio is one of the biggest and most beautiful monuments in the city of Verona. It was built on the riverbanks between 1354 and 1356 by Prince Cangrande II della Scala (Scaliger dynasty).

This castle was used for military purposes until 1926 when it became home to Museo Civico, an important museum that now hosts important Mediaeval, Renaissance, and modern art collections (up to the 18th century).

Take a walk through the ancient castle walkways and admire the beauty of Verona and its river from a different point of view.

6) Duomo di Verona

Cattedrale Santa Maria Matricolare is Verona’s Cathedral, known in Italian as Duomo. It was constructed after two Palaeo-Christian churches on the same site had been destroyed by an earthquake in 1117. Built-in Romanesque style, the cathedral was consecrated in 1187.

The structure was later modified by several renovators, although the plan has remained unchanged. Inside you can admire several Renaissance masterpieces. Next to the Duomo stands one of the world’s oldest libraries: The Chapter Library of Verona Cathedral (Biblioteca Capitolare della Cattedrale di Verona)!

7) Teatro Romano

Crossing Ponte Pietra, and heading towards the hills of Castel San Pietro, you will reach a marvel of ancient architecture: the Roman Theatre. The construction of this building dates back to the end of the 1st century BC. Visiting this theater allows you to delve into the origins of Verona and imagine what the infamous historic plays were really like in Roman times.

Even today, you can still enjoy live performances and events, especially during “Estate Teatrale Veronese”, “Verona Jazz” and “Festival della Bellezza”. The Archaeological Museum is located by the Roman Theatre and features lots of archeological findings collected from all over Verona and its province: statues, mosaics, inscriptions, glass, ceramics…

8) Cortile Mercato Vecchio

The Palazzo della Ragione, today an important museum, was built in the 12th century to accommodate the magistrates of the Municipality. A small arch on the right leads to the courtyard of Mercato Vecchio, an ancient seat of commercial activities and the city market. The marble Scala della Ragione stands there in all its beauty.

An entrance hidden beneath it leads to the Torre dei Lamberti and the top of the tower is accessible via stairs or elevator. From the top, you can enjoy a marvelous view of Verona’s city center.

9) San Zeno Maggiore

San Zeno Maggiore is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture. Being somewhat removed from the center of Verona, San Zeno is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful moment. But… who is Saint Zeno? He was a teacher, a monk, and a martyr.

Nowadays he’s the patron saint of Verona. A suggestion made by a local: you should pay a visit to the San Zeno area during carnival time, on the so-called Venerdì Gnocolar (“Gnocchi Friday”). All the bars, restaurants, and osterias serve gnocchi and Verona’s typical drinks, while people (often disguised) wait for the arrival of the cheerful carnival floats.

10) Sant’Anastasia

The church of Saint Anastasia, although a much smaller building, is no less impressive than the Duomo and San Zeno. Located between Piazza Erbe and Ponte Pietra, the stunning interior decorated with colorful frescoes never fails to amaze its visitors.

It’s difficult to mention all Veronese churches in a short list but if you are interested to know more about the sacred monuments to admire in Verona, you can discover more on this website.

11) Romeo and Juliet’s places

History, legend, and literature merge when we retrace the two lovers’ steps in Verona. The most famous place is Juliet’s house (casa di Giulietta). But… It may not be where Juliet actually lived– the Capuleti family probably lived near the riverbank.

The balcony might have come from one of the buildings that used to be next to the river, rescued from floods, and then placed on the facade where we can still see it nowadays. Or maybe it used to be a sarcophagus then converted into a balcony! You will find many different versions of the story!

From via Cappello, you can reach the small courtyard of Casa di Giulietta, whose entrance walls are covered in love messages. In Verona, you can also find Juliet’s Tomb: a coffin in a small chamber in what used to be a Franciscan church (now the “G.B. Cavalcaselle” Museum of Frescoes). That crypt was the setting for the tragic finale of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Next to Arche Scaligere (also worth visiting), you can find Casa dei Montecchi. Legends have it that Romeo used to live there. You can only visit the facade since it’s still a private building.

12) Giusti garden

Giusti Garden is located on the northeast side of the city, across the river, and is a perfect place to relax. The garden is behind the Renaissance Giusti Palace. From the outside, you would never guess that the palazzo holds such a beautiful garden.

Interesting facts:

  • in Giardino Giusti, you can find the cypress of Goethe, which was quoted in the author’s  Italian Journey. This tree is 600 years old!
  • there’s also a small maze, good fun for children;
  • it’s a giardino all’Italiana, inspired by the classical ideas of geometry and beauty.
