Depends how many days you have on your trip, but I would say so. Verona is a pretty cool city, and you can pretty much see everything in one day. There is the 3rd largest Colosseum in Italy, Juliet's house, the ruins of the old Amphitheater, and a bunch of other cool places. It's a typical italian city, and a great place to enjoy a nice bottle of wine in the end of the afternoon. over 10 years ago
Agreed. Verona is a nice town with lots of interesting streets to get lost in.
There are your usual Italian designer shops and churches, along with some really interesting historical sites.
It is the last point before you head into the tri-lingual part of Italy further North. This I think makes the Italians stress how Italian they are.
Pizza and beer in Verona is pretty good too. Especially the pizza! over 10 years ago
For me Verona is somewhere to base yourself to visit the Veneto, as opposed to Venice itself. This of course a personal opinion and depends very much on the season you are travelling. I was in Venice in high summer and found it to be stupidly hot and very much a heaving tourist park, with few Italians in sight. As you will no doubt be aware, accommodation is extremely pricey as well. Having said that, friends have told me they visited out of season and had a much more positive experience.
As previous posters have said Verona does have some great attractions in itself - lovely boutiques, stunning architecture, alfresco dining, its own little colosseum (which incidentally hosts quite a few live acts in the summer) and the old town is more comparable to a village rather than a city. The Dolomites and lakes are achievable day trips as well. over 10 years ago
If you're in Venice seeking romance you wouldn't miss Verona. It's a very romantic city, with a beautiful city centre.
As said, if you visit the city in summer you can get to see the world famous Verdi's "Aida" at Arena di Verona (booking is strongly recommended). That's a very exciting experience: a masterpiece of classical music hosted in a stunning venue. over 10 years ago
I am sure it's worth it.. Verona is the fourth historical italian city with a lot of art, culture and typical foods (great wines too).. Just have a look at this new blog called Holiday Verona with many pictures, information and recommendations to tourists and you'll get an idea of how beautiful the city is:
