Best area to stay in Verona
The best place to stay in Verona is the Historic Centre, where you will be surrounded by roman ruins, charming churches and some of Verona´s most prized architectural gems, as well as being close to the star attraction: Verona Arena (Arena di Verona), declared a UNESCO world heritage site.
Exploring the Historic Centre on foot, you will come across the Piazza Bra, Verona´s largest piazza, many cafés and restaurants, as well as several main points of interest: the Arena di Verona, the Palazzo Barbieri and the Gran Guardia Palace. The impressive Arena di Verona was built some two thousand years ago, and is currently used as venue for opera shows and contemporary music concerts.
But there is much more to Verona than that, the area is teeming with places to be explored: the Arco dei Gavi, Castelvecchio Museum, the incredible Ponte Scaligero, La Piazza delle Erbe, the Piazza dei Signori, the Torre dei Lamberti where you can enjoy amazing views over the city, the Basilica of San Zeno, the Scaliger Tombs, the Santa Anastasia Church, and if you cross the Adigio river you can also visit the Roman Theatre.
If you like to go shopping you can easily spend a few hours at the Via Mazzini, which is full of clothes shops. For eating there are many bars, trattorias and restaurants all across the centre, where you can join crowds of lively diners who laugh and talk the night away, something which is so typical of Verona.
