Holidays to Verona
Verona holidays are a great way to see some of Italy’s most beautiful sights and take in real Italian culture. Verona itself sits on the banks of the River Adige, and has been awarded Chef-Lieus status in the region, declaring it as one of the country’s most influential cities.
Seeing the city
From the moment you get off the plane it will be clear to you just how beautiful the city of Verona really is. Thin Italian streets lead you from sight to sight, surrounded by the unique local architecture. On your trip to Verona you will find a number of traditional Italian churches. If you want to plan a visit then the San Zeno Maggiore and the Sant’Anastasia churches are both firm favourites.
By tracing the river you will be able to see plenty of picturesque local sights, and before you’ve gone far at all you’ll have quickly come across the Ponte Aleardi Bridge, the Climitero Monumentale Clock Tower and the Museum Civico Di Storia Naturale, all of which show something unique and interesting about the city.
Once the beautiful Italian sights have you in the mood for some culture, the opera within the Arena Di Verona can be a fantastic way to spend an evening. Seeing this authentic Italian art form within the confines of an old-fashioned stadium is a truly inspirational experience.
Like many European countries, Verona has some fantastic Piazzas and squares to visit. The Piazza Delle Erbe and Piazza Dei Signori are both exciting and vibrant places to go, but the city’s main square is the Piazza Bra. Set in front of the city gates, the Piazza Bra is intended to greet travellers as they enter Verona. The piazza is full of interesting things to see and do, like the central statue of Italian King Vittorio Emanuele II riding on horseback.
There’s no shortage of places and ways to eat across Verona. If you’re operating on a budget then the Osteria Sottoriva is a great place to visit. The restaurant is extremely popular for lunch and dinner, serving stand-out food that come in huge portions at good prices. If you have a hunger for something a little quieter, The Trattoria Papa e Cicia serves home-cooked Italian dishes and is only ten minutes out from the town centre.
For those with a sweet tooth Verona will not disappoint. Across the city there are loads of ice cream shops serving the traditional Italian pudding. Inside the Piazza San Zeno is one stand-out vendor, the Gelateria Zeno Gelato e Cioccolato where you will be able to pick from a variety of flavours, toppings and sizes.
