A tour around Verona in 9 steps

Known as one of the most romantic cities in the world, Verona is a place with which all its visitors fall in love. In fact, some of Palazzo Victoria’s former guests, who came only for two or three days, always asked us about how they could make the most of their Veronese experience. We’ve thought about it and we’ve created a little 9 steps schedule for those of you who are in Verona for only a couple of days. Are you ready to fall in love with Verona?

  1.  Now that the spring arrived you can enjoy some ‘terrace’ time and have a drink in Piazza delle Erbe.
  2. You can watch the stunning, panoramic view from the top of Torre dei Lamberti.
  3. If you’re coming with your partner, you can show him/her your love once more at la Casa di Giulietta.
  4. Don’t forget about crossing the bridge over the river Adige and visiting il Museo di Castelvecchio.
  5. Let out the shopaholic inside you in Via Mazzini, Piazza Bra and Corso Porta Borsari
  6. …and if you need to recharge your batteries you can have lunch at Borsari 36
  7.  Afterwards, you can drop by L’Arena and travel back to the Roman era
  8. In the Giusti Garden the first flowers of the spring are starting to show. You can’t miss it!
  9. And, before you leave… have one last drink at Victoria Lounge e Cafè!

In Verona a good time is always guaranteed. Why not coming and feeling it for yourself?

Why Goethe was so impressed by the Giusti Gardens?

While sat under one of the cypresses, enjoying the refreshment of its shadow, the great German poet felt overwhelmed by all the beauty around him. Today we could think of his feeling as a ‘poetic exaggeration’. But it was not. The sensibility of his did not betray the clarity of his senses. In fact, if you sum the cypresses, the fountains, the statues and the maze the result you get is something beyond words.

The Palazzo and the gardens, properties of the Giusti family, were designed and built in the 16th century. In addition to some lesser changes previously performed, after World War II the gardens  were reformed, in order to correct the damages caused by the conflict. Therefore, what we can see today is a clear example of a Renaissance style Italian garden, of which esthetic is based on geometrical structures.

Located in the east side of Verona, near to the city center and to Piazza Isolo, you can find the Giusti area at Via Giardino Giusti, 2. The garden is open from 9 am to 7 pm until March, and from April to September (summer period), from 9 am to 8 pm. With regards to the tickets, the standard entrance is priced of €6, the reduced entrance (+15 people groups), €5, and the school entrance, €3.

This visit is not included within the Verona Card offers. However, if you want to understand what Goethe felt at the cypress’s shadow, we highly recommend visiting the Giusti Gardens.
