Best places to visit in Verona

Verona, often cited as the city of love due to its association with Shakespeare’s famous tragedy “Romeo and Juliet,” is a beacon of culture and beauty in Italy's Veneto region. Nestled on the serpentine Adige river, Verona is a symphony of ancient Roman structures, renaissance art, and medieval buildings, all weaved into a vibrant modern-day fabric. To truly embrace the charm of this UNESCO World Heritage site, embark on an exploration of the very best spots the city has to offer, and consider allowing Happytripz to guide you through the storied streets and hidden gems with our expertly curated excursions.

A first-time visitor seeking to soak in the essence of Verona could scarcely do better than starting at the ancient heart of the city, the well-conserved Arena di Verona. Not only an architectural marvel but also an entertainment hub, the amphitheater continues to be the epicenter of Verona’s operatic scene. Meander through its vaulted passageways and imagine the echoes of a gladiatorial past juxtaposed with the harmonious present.

As you drift from lane to lane, a must-see is the supposed home of Juliet - Casa di Giulietta. Though the story of the star-crossed lovers is a work of fiction, the romance-laden balcony and bronze statue of Juliet draw countless visitors. Take a moment to scrawl your message of love on the wall, or better yet, entrust Happytripz to craft that perfect moment on one of our specialized tours.

Beyond the allure of love, Verona offers a treasure trove of historical sites:

  • Piazza delle Erbe: Once a Roman forum, now a bustling marketplace surrounded by medieval buildings, it's the perfect venue to savor a cappuccino while absorbing the milieu.
  • Castelvecchio: This robust fortress, now transformed into a museum, houses a remarkable collection of Veronese art, amidst panoramic views of the Adige River. Find it on the map here.
  • Ponte Pietra: This picturesque stone bridge offers an idyllic view of the city and constitutes a peaceful stroll, especially at sunset.
  • Verona Cathedral (Cattedrale Santa Maria Matricolare): A mix of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, this cathedral houses artistic masterpieces, including works by Titian.

Leaving no stone unturned, the value of experiencing Verona with those who know it intimately cannot be overstated. With Happytripz, enjoy the luxury of insight and local anecdotes that bring the city’s history alive.

A mere word about gastronomy and you’ll be navigating through a culinary landscape as rich as its cultural counterpart. Trattorias and osterias tucked away behind the main piazzas serve traditional Veronese dishes like polenta, risotto, and pastissada de caval, a horse meat stew that may intrigue the gastronomic adventurer. Of course, a glass of the local Valpolicella wine is an unmissable companion to any meal. Our Happytripz tour guides are ready to recommend the very best spots for an authentic taste of Verona.

Whether it's a quiet corner of a piazza, an unexpected gallery, or the highest tower with sweeping views, Verona is a city waiting to be unravelled. And what better way to peel back its layers than in the company of Happytripz, where each excursion is more than a tour, but a narrative woven through time.

Among the many timeless narratives is the Scaliger Tombs, an exquisite example of Gothic art, which celebrates the Scaliger family who once ruled Verona. This historical site is not only a testament to the city's rich lineage but also an architectural demonstrative that has garnered the admiration of historians and art aficionados alike.

So why wait? Let us, your friends at Happytripz, take the reins. Together, let us wander through the same streets that have inspired poets, sparked romances, and perpetuated legends for centuries. Verona awaits, timeless and inviting – an open book whose pages turn with the softest whisper of an Italian breeze.
