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?

The Untouchable Ennio Morricone

The award-winning prodigal son is coming back home. Ennio Morricone is closing his European summer tour at the Arena di Verona next September 12, and his concert is a total must-go. The performance will cover some of his most famous compositions for cinema and television, played by a grand orchestra.

If you get emotional easily, make sure to bring your tissues, because masterpieces will align one after another. The Untouchables (1987), The Mission (1986), A fistful of dollars (1964), Once upon a time in America (1984) or The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) are just some of the legendary soundtracks that will sound next Saturday at the stunning scenario provided by the Arena.

86-year-old Morricone is a living legend. He has composed more than 500 pieces for the big screen and TV, and the value of his legacy and its influence on younger composers are undeniable. Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance for this once in a lifetime opportunity and, afterwards, dream of Morricone’s paradise at Palazzo Victoria.

The time of your life: Dirty Dancing @ the Arena

If you are an 80s kid, you will most likely remember Baby and Johnny at Kellerman’s camp. Their love story was just as thrilling as their dance scenes, and, let’s be honest, all of us wanted to be Jennifer Grey or Patrick Swayze at some point in the movie. Dirty Dancing became one of the most iconic romantic comedies ever and gave us the time of our lives. Since it’s one of our favorites too, we are so excited for this great news: Baby and Johnny are coming to town!

3 fun facts about ‘Romeo and Juliet’ you probably didn’t know

We all know the story: young man and young lady fall in love in the magical city of Verona, rival families, impossible relationship, tragic ending. However, Romeo and Juliet is still one of the most studied and performed plays to this day. And although very little remains unexplored about the story, the characters or Shakespeare himself, there are still some mysteries to unveil.

Here are 3 fun facts about Romeo and Juliet that you probably didn’t know:

1. Shakespeare never visited Verona. Even though Romeo and Juliet meet, fall in love and die in the city, the English playwright never put a foot on the Veneto region. We have to thank him for becoming the universal city of love.

2. Juliet’s house in Verona is filled with love notes from tourists. The number of love notes that visitors leave on every corner of the house is so big, that the authorities need to clean it up. They usually do it twice a year: on Valentine’s Day and on September 17, Juliet’s birthday. There is also a message wall, where visitors can scribble their love wishes—just like the one we have at Palazzo Victoria!

 3. The famous balcony doesn’t appear in Shakespeare’s play. In the 16th Century, the theatrical scenery was so poor that the location was described by actors, and a balcony would’ve been very difficult to represent. Nevertheless, subsequent stagings of the play did include the balcony and made it so famous, that it had to be added to Juliet’s house in Verona at the beginning of the 20th Century.

After you fall in love with Romeo and Juliet, come and fall for Palazzo Victoria, your favorite hotel in Verona. Your romantic holiday is made!

3 ways to keep fit while visiting Verona

It is difficult to stay on your exercise routine while you’re traveling. Suddenly you are sleeping at weird hours in a different time zone, you are eating outside all the time and you might not have access to a proper gym! But there are still ways to find a moment for yourself and your body when you’re abroad. How? Let us show you 3 very simple ways of staying fit while staying with us:

1. Jogging around the city. If you like starting your day with an energizing run, you can easily jog around Verona. Locals usually frequent the percorso della salute (or “health trail”) in Parco delle Mura, a big park that lays where once were the walls that protected the town. The gardens are now the lung of the city and the area is lovely!

2. Exercise in your hotel. At Palazzo Victoria we have an awesome gym that we invite you to try. But if you’re shy, in our suites, you’ll have space for all the squats, jumping jacks and push-ups you need. Just remember not to break anything, please! Here is a quick guide to a morning mini-work out:
-
 25 jumping jacks
– 50 reps of marching in place with high knees
– 25 push-ups
– 20 squats
– 25 jumping jacks

3. Hit the pool! Especially during the summer, a swim is a complete work out and a refreshing way of starting your day. Piscine Santini Verona and Verona Lido are two public pools that are easily reachable by public transportation. If you go early in the morning, you’ll find them empty just for you.

Stay healthy and fit with us at Palazzo Victoria, your favorite luxury hotel in Verona!
