    The best view of the city from the Hill. Can be reached by cable car or on foot on the ladder. The rise of fast, strong physical costs does not require.

    It is worth the climb to enjoy the best views of the city. Climb walk is free but the funicular is very comfortable and costs €2 subida+bajada.

  • An amazing camp site, close to the center. Located in an old fort, staff was super friendly and the atmosphere on the campsite was amazing. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a good time in verona and the garda lake.
  • The views from the top are spectular... Be prepared to climb the steep steps...those with heart conditions / disabled / old will struggle. There is an alternative by car through the winding roads at the back that will get you to the top. Make a visit!
  • One of the castles in Veron with superbly view. From top you will get some tantalizing glimpse of the city
  • Best place to see Verona.
  • Great lookout point!

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.
