    Lively square with many delicacies and spices of the region, in addition to the shops and ice cream parlors. The gellato of Song is a must.

    If Piazza Bra ' is the Ballroom, collecting Piazza delle Erbe can be considered the parlour of Veronese. In addition to the numerous stalls (in the recent past they sold even live animals from courtyard) that occupy the space greater than the square, under the arcades there are the meeting places of Verona, where are the most trendy items like the "aperitif". From the monumental point of view in the square besides the Lamberti Tower in plain sight, there are the statue of Madonna Verona, lion statue and fountain in the Center. From an architectural point of view, in addition to the aforementioned arcades and the Tower there are old houses with original plaster pieces. Confirming the interest in this square add that many inexperienced or famous painters the reproduce on their canvases.

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.
