  • Great place and views. You need to be in good shape if taking the steps up. Take your time and stop going up so you can enjoy the different city views.  more »
  • From this square, you will have a panoramic view of the city. All Verona is at your feet. You can access it or from the Roman Theatre via stairs or with a handy funicular (on your left) once you get past the stone bridge. Definitely worth a visit

  • The views from piazzale Castel San Pietro is unmatched, especially at sunset. From there, one can understand the geography of the city, whose old town is partly collected inside the loop of the Adige. Leaving the car, you can go through a short route that passes, another treat, next to the Roman Theatre. Then you cross the stone bridge, the last remaining Roman bridge and you can reach it, walk around the old town, the Arena. Is a Verona that steals your heart!

  • 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.
