Surrounded by ancient history, Roman ruins, medieval vestiges, antique palaces and parishes, Verona is bursting with beauty and charm. A vivacious city of art, you can expect an array of elegant eateries, couture shops and architectural masterpieces which, when teamed together, offer a luxury holiday you’ll never forget.

Centuries of history rolled into one city, best known for its Shakespearean associations, an atmosphere of renaissance romance seamlessly lives on. Verona continues to entice tourists thanks to its pretty pizzerias, picturesque rivers, fascinating bridges and castles, making it an ideal spot for couples.

A picture-perfect city steeped in culture is just waiting to be explored. Think ancient cobbled streets dappled in sunlight, cosy street restaurants serving risotto and lasagne and stunning cathedrals, where every carving tells a story.

Pigments of ochre and yellow, glow down the narrow pavements, enhanced by pretty window shutters, enchanting cafes and scented flora. Lively locals, colourful eateries, charming bars and an array of boutique shops will help you settle in, in no time.

Just beyond the city gates lie vineyards, lakes, hills and mountains, making Verona all that you wished for and more! Embark on a little wine tasting or take a leisurely stroll as you lap up the surreal beauty that surrounds you.

Verona’s hotel offerings tick all the boxes for an authentic taste of Italy. With ancient charm and rich Romanesque and Gothic architecture, the hotels will seduce you with their exteriors. Inside, take your pick from chic, contemporary décor or timeless elegance. If traditional is what you like then you won’t be disappointed with the wooden beams, classic white furnishings and stunning Italian marble bathrooms on offer.

While only some of the hotels offer tranquil spas with indoor and outdoor areas that flow blissfully into one another, one thing you can be sure of is that your mouth will be continuously watering. Think rich Italian dishes accompanied by fine red wine served al fresco on pretty terraces! You’re in Italy after all so you’re almost guaranteed a flavour explosion with every mouthful.

For panoramic vistas of Verona and nearby mountains a visit to Torre Dei Lamberti is a must! The 84m-high watch tower sports an octagonal bell and boasts the best views in the city.

Location

Verona in a nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 
  • Visit the Duomo (cathedral) and watch it dazzle with brilliance. Snoop around and take in the high ceilings, ancient hand painting and remarkable architecture. If you only have time to visit one Cathedral on your trip, make it this one!
     
  •  Castel Vecchio Museum and Ponte Scaligero is a must. The 14th century fortress, was created to defend Verona against attacks from powerful neighbours, including from the Venetians. Damaged during the Napoleonic Wars, the castle was later used as a barracks and has since been transformed into a museum housing cool artefacts, weapons and paintings, making for a cultured day out.
     
After Dark Destinations
 
  • Verona is incredibly romantic, especially at night. Wander the cobbled streets as you take a memorable evening stroll while lapping up all the beauty around you. Aperitivo at Caffe delle Erbe is the perfect place to enjoy a wide range of cocktails while lapping up a lively atmosphere.
     
  • Piazza Bra is the pulse of Verona, where locals meet, food is enjoyed and wine is shared. At night people congregate by the fountains and statues mingling, drinking and waiting for the performances at the Arena and theatre. For an evening of colour, noise and a view, there is no better spot, watch the people pass as the city comes alive.
     
  •  On summer nights, the Roman Arena play host to fantastic music events so don’t forget to check what’s on! Also, the annual open season still draws the world’s top names.
     
  •  For a good vintage with a view, Terrazza Bar Al Ponte is a must.
     
  •  Perched on the piazza where Verona’s Roman fish market once held sway, Pescheria l Masenini is a soft lit, elegant eatery, serving up the city’s most imaginative fish dishes that guarantees freshness and fabulous flavours. How does sea bass infused with zesty green apple and pink pepper sound?
     
  • Lost in a backstreet away from the hustle and bustle stands Osteria da ugo. Surrounded by stained glass and wine bottles, enjoy a charming atmosphere and hearty dishes. This one is ideal for families wanting to experience a traditional Italian meal.
     
  • Join the locals at La Tradision for an intimate, relaxed dining affair. The gastro-bar is the perfect spot to sample cheeses, salamis, wines and cold meats and delivers delicious simplicity.
