In November 2013 I was for 4 days in Verona. This was my 5th time there and surely I will get there for the 6th one 🙂
I am in love with most of Italy, but Verona charmed me in a way that I just had to get back there with him.
And it was a bewitched trip.
We managed to find a good hotel near Castelvecchio which is in the heart of the city (the city is pretty small too) and so we could get everywhere by foot. The room was spacious and one morning we even had the pleasure to hear our neighbor singing opera. You can imagine what cliche was that but it was painfully beautiful!
Due to our location, we could eat at a different restaurant every night, stay up late, wonder the streets, buy a lot of clothes and carry them back to the room so that we could continue our exploration in the city 🙂
We visited the colosseum, Juliet’s balcony, the old theater, piazza Bra, Ponte Pietro, San Pietro castle, Castel Vecchio, the Giuseppe gardens and the church up on the hill.
There are so many things to do and see in Verona that you won’t believe, but I think that the main pleasure is to get lost throughout the streets and enjoy the beautiful architecture.
As for eating, just let go and try everything!
There are a lot of nice restaurants in the heart of the city, right next to the Colosseum, in the piazzas or next to the river. We ate everywhere, but the most beautiful restaurant that we found was one that was on the right of the main street with shops, near to its end. It was a beautiful place, that has a few tables outside, very small, but with such a romatic feel. We enjoyed there some great food and an excellent bottle of wine.
The next evening we went to Osteria del Duca where they serve a great horse carpaccio topped with a romatic setting.
