People Watching in Piazza Bra | Things to do in Verona | Citalia

People Watching in Piazza Bra

Right at Verona’s heart lays Piazza Bra – arguably the most breathtaking square in all of Italy. Cobbled to perfection and ringed by rainbow-colour medieval buildings, the square ticks every box on the Italophile’s checklist. Yet it also boasts a rather more unique asset that few other piazzas can rival: it’s very own Roman amphitheatre. Fitting snugly at one end of the expanse, the Verona Arena dominates the piazza providing a focal point for the cafes, restaurants and boutiques that face towards the square’s centre.

There’s no better place to people watch as this is truly the centre of the city – a confluence of roadways and passages that draws people from all across town. Take a seat at one of the many pavement cafes, choose a glass of vino or local coffee and enjoy the show, as life in Verona flows continuously around you. It’s the best way to experience the great vibe of Shakespeare’s city, and is an ideal starting point for many other exploits too.
