Hotel B4 Verona Leon d'Oro 1/1 by Tripoto
Magandeep Singh
Hotel Leon d’Oro is a good place to park bags: small walk from the centre and massive comfort able rooms. Definitely make a meal-stop at Osteria Al Duomo and try some donkey-meat pasta (Bigoni Al Assimo). There is horse-meat too. History has it that people travelling across the Dolomites (alpine extension) stopped here in Verona before making the ascent to discard their old tired horses and to take new young stallions onwards. There wasn’t much to do with these weary rides but to make into a good stew. The tough meat needed long cooking to soften so don’t expect Carpaccio–style dishes here. If you like it meaty and gnawy, horse is the way to go and no better place than Verona for it.
