  • Located in the beautiful San Francesco al Corso decentralized, complex expanded and restored in 2015, this is a Museum really interesting and very well organized. Usually the visitor arrives in this secluded spot to visit the so-called "Tomb of Juliet," but with a ridiculously low price of ticket is a valuable lesson about the art of Verona and on techniques of execution, of detachment and restoration of the frescoes. This path is referred to as a "journey through the centuries in the city painted", and it's just as well. There are exposed and reassembled in their original positions frescoes from ancient medieval shrines veronesi and religious buildings, interior decorations of Renaissance palaces and painting cycles saved from exterior facades of the palaces of Verona, which was one of the most colorful cities of Italy. Models that reproduce the original location of the paintings, panels that explain the particular Fresco technique, examples of preparatory works on masonry, sinopie environments and perfect lights, all carefully designed together with the University of Verona. The precious heritage of frescoes veronesi (enriched by donations from other cities such as Mantua) continues in the path of the museum dedicated to large paintings on canvas and on wood, to preparatory sketches and ceramics. The painting cycles, and mythological references or religious themes that they depict, are carefully explained and assisted by iconographic references useful to understand every detail of the images. A truly interesting and enriching.

  • The Museum was restored and reorganized in 2015, so very good. The pieces are not many, but well prepared and interesting subjects. Besides frescoes there are also statues of value. Tickets cost €4.5 and allows the visit to the mysterious tomb of Juliet, it's not worth visiting.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
