Overview of Verona
Being a World Heritage Site, Verona has echoes of the past throughout the city, and despite being bombed during World War II, its character thankfully remains intact. Armed with a map and compass, Verona is a wonderful maze to get lost in, with historical buildings, museums and churches seemingly around every corner. The Roman arena and beautiful churches give an enlightening look back at Italian history. The Tombs of Scaligero, located by Santa Maria Antica Church, hold the bodies of Veronaâs 14th Century rulers, and the Castelvecchio castle also looks after the cityâs main art gallery. For those planning to visit a number of Veronaâs attractions, a âVerona Cardâ can be purchased, granting entrance to a number of the cityâs enticements for a much-reduced price. Having its own airport just 3 miles from its centre, Verona is an easy city to reach. An Aerobus service links Verona with its airport, with regular journeys taking around 15 minutes. The city centre has a bus service, but given the size and the number of narrow streets, Verona is best experienced on foot. Being in the north-east region of Italy, Verona can be used as a base to visit two of Italyâs other premier destinations â Lake Garda is around 20 minutes by train and Venice around an hour (plus a short boat trip!). The main train station, Porta Nuova, is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Verona, best reached by bus.
The shopping in Verona ticks all the boxes, from traditional antiques to premium fashion stores. Via Mazzini, close to Piazza BrÃ¡, is the place to find the cream of Italyâs fashion stores, including Gucci and Louis Vuitton. For a more rustic experience, Piazza Erbe has a market selling clothes and food and is a wonderful way to pass the time whilst finding some authentic Veronese souvenirs. Piazza San Zeno has an antique market, with goods on offer ranging from trinkets to furniture and even motor vehicles. Anyone wanting to bring back a bottle of something Veronese should seek out one of the cityâs many wine stockists, where friendly and enthusiastic proprietors will gladly recommend a bottle so you can take a taste of Verona home with you. Bear in mind that many of Veronaâs shops are closed on Sundays, so save that day for other attractions.
