I want every moment of your stay in Verona to be special! So, I’ve picked out a few of my favorite things to do in this unique city—be inspired and explore by clicking on the pins.
HOUSE OF JULIET
Near the Piazza della Erbe, you’ll find the House of Juliet – a must-see for all lovers of Shakespeare’s most powerful love story. Stand on the famous balcony, or venture into the courtyard to see the bronze statue of Juliet. Legend has it that touching her gives good luck.
Piazza della Erbe, meaning HERBS Square, is the home of Verona’s ancient town hall as well as many beautiful ancient statues and facades. Be sure to visit the fountain built in 1368 by Cansignorio della Scala, which houses the beautiful statue called Madonna Verona.
Italian for “Stone Bridge”, the Ponte Pietra is the oldest bridge in Verona! Completed in 100 BC, the bridge provided important access to the east bank and the Roman theatre.
PIAZZA DEI SIGNORI
Nearby Piazza delle Erbe you will find Piazza dei Signori, one of the most popular attractions for students and young people to meet and socialize. The square’s dancing and live music is accented by many buildings of great importance, including the Palazzo del Podestà and the Loggia del Consiglio.
BASILICA OF SAN ZENO
Continue along the river to find the Basilica of San Zeno, a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture dedicated to our patron saint. After visiting the Basilica, grab a seat on the bench in the square and enjoy an ice cream from the nearby gelateria!
Walk along the river and witness the impressive Castelvecchio, a castle that began construction back in 1354 and now hosts a collection of sculptures, art, and ancient weapons. Its majestic bridge connects the old city with the modern district of Borgo Trento!
ARENA AND PIAZZA BRA
Built in the first century, the Arena di Verona has overlooked the beautiful Piazza Bra for 2,000 years – since the time of the gladiators. It is incredibly well preserved and hosts world-famous opera performances to this day.
