Best things to do in Verona and sightseeing in Verona

Hotel B4 Verona Leon d'Oro - Verona

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.

Piazza Santo Spirito - Verona

3. Eat gelato at my favourite gelateria La Romana | piazza Santa Spirito 9 – located just south of the historical centre. Try the biscotto della nonna, it’s delicious.

Piazza Bra - Verona

1. Wander and wonder. Verona’s historic centre is nicely contained by the curve of the river, allowing you to meander without getting lost. Check out the bridges crossing the Adige river and the piazzas – piazza Bra, piazza delle Erbe and piazza dei Signori.

Piazza dell Erbe - Verona

5. Buy a fruit cup from the permanent market stalls in piazza delle Erbe and feel virtuous for taking a pizza/gelato break. Or, if you need something more substantial, visit the food floor of department store Excelsior just around the corner on Via Mazzini. Though somehow, despite all the choices on offer, my parents and I managed to all order hamburgers when I visited with them. oops.

Teatro romano di Verona - Verona

4. See an opera at the Arena or a concert at the Teatro Romano (Roman amphiteatre). We saw Ennio Morricone with an orchestra at the Arena last year, and it was amazing.

Piazzale Castel San Pietro - Verona

2. Cross the ponte pietra (stone bridge) and climb to the top of the hill to Castel San Pietro for a birds eye view of Verona. It’s hard work, especially in summer, but worth it. Also, stop half way across the bridge and look back to your right to see my favourite little crop of buildings in Verona (pictured above).
