Verona City Holidays

Show on Map

Romance and ruins are always on the agenda in this peaceful and picturesque Italian gem of a city.

Roman revolution

As a once popular settlement for the Romans, it is no wonder that Verona has plenty to offer any history enthusiast. Many of Verona’s ancient wonders have been restored over time after an earthquake in 1117, but many ruins still exist for your viewing pleasure. Visit the Verona arena – a beautiful amphitheatre in the city centre that can seat 25,000 people. If you’re there over summer, be sure to catch one of the open-air operas that are staged there! The Roman theatre of Verona, dating back to the 1st century BCE, is equally striking, and the Porta Leoni is a ruined city gate from the same era.

It’s not just about the ruins

Situated on the doorstep of Lake Garda, this city boasts some spectacular views. Make sure you visit the gorgeous Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore, a Romanesque structure with intricate biblical scenes decorating each doorway. The Fuime Adige River is adorned with lights every evening, so walk down to the Ponte Scaligero for a view of the shimmering waters. For a breath-taking view of the whole city, the Castel San Pietro will not disappoint. If you’re hoping for some peace and quiet, head to the Parco della Cascate di Molina, which is a stunning waterfall park coated in emerald green foliage.

Veronese cuisine

There are a few dishes unique to Verona that you won’t want to miss while you’re there! The city offers many gelato and vineyard tours for a general overview, but make sure you seek out some of Verona’s specialities too. The Veronese are known for their risottos, (try the ‘risotto al radicchio’), as well as their particular liking for horse and donkey meat. Their signature wines include the Soave (white), Chiareto (rosé), and the extremely popular Valpolicella (red) – perfect with any pizza or pasta!
