As one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, Verona provides the setting for an unforgettable city break or multi-centre holiday. There was a reason Shakespeare placed star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in Verona – it's the city of love. Today, the famous balcony of Casa di Guiletta (Juliet's house) is one of the most popular attractions, but there are plenty more sights that rank among Italy’s very best.

History buffs will love exploring the dramatic Verona Amphitheatre (the Arena di Verona) – believed to be one of the world’s largest – while the sky-scraping Torre dei Lamberti is great for those with a head for heights, offering astounding views from its marble-clad rooftop.

Verona's central square, Piazza delle Erbe, provides a beating heart for the city, and marks the centre-point of a maze of atmospheric streets, jam-packed with culinary hotspots and craft shops. 

Things to do in Verona

Verona is a great city for wandering the cobbled streets, admiring the designer shops and watching the world go by from a cafe terrace. In Piazza delle Erbe, you can explore the colourful market or sample some of the region's food. For art lovers, Verona's City Art Museum, housed in the 14th-century Castel Vecchio, offers a great collection of medieval sculptures and Renaissance paintings. No city break in Verona would be complete without climbing the 238 steps to the top of the Lamberti tower, where you'll be rewarded with a breathtaking view over the rooftops. Verona is also home to one of the most important open-air theatres in the world, the Arena di Verona. If you are travelling over the opera season, we would highly recommend booking a ticket for one of the performances.

Flight Information

Direct flights to Verona airport (VRN) are available from Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Glasgow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Manchester, Newcastle and Southampton and take approximately 2 hours. Transfers to the city centre take approximately 20 minutes.

 

When To Go

It is possible to visit Verona throughout the year. The summer months are the busiest due to the ever popular opera season, this is also when you will find the hotel prices at their highest. To avoid large crowds, visit during the spring and autumn when the weather is also a little cooler.

 

Verona Specialities

Verona is much more than just pasta. Dishes from northern Italy are based a lot around rice, in particular Vialone Nano. There won't be a menu in Verona that doesn't contain risotto. It also won't be uncommon to watch the locals tucking into polenta, a thick cream made with corn flour, enjoyed hot and served with cured meats and cheese.

A traditional Veronese restaurant is called an osteria. Originally serving wine, the emphasis is a lot more around the food these days. Verona's medieval town centre, Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza Bra have an endless choice of osterie, as well as trattorie and pizzerie. 

History

Verona has its fair share of medieval and Renaissance art and culture, as well claiming to have more Roman ruins than any Italian city. Verona was a key Roman settlement due to its location on both the east-west and north-south trade routes – visible still with the city's ancient gates and imposing amphitheatre. The amphitheatre, familiar from countless images, was built in AD30 and much of the original arena is still preserved. Since Verona was founded in the 1st century BC, a remarkable number of monuments are still intact, landing it on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 2000.
