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!

Verona celebrates art… and wine!

Wine has always been a source of inspiration for artists around the world. Scottish novelist, Robert Louis Stevenson, said it loud and clear: “Wine is bottled poetry”.

Now, Verona honors this special relationship between wine and art with the exhibition ‘Arte e Vino‘, open to the public at il Palazzo della Gran Guardia until August 16th.

Visitors will discover how the enjoyment of wine has been depicted throughout the history of art by means of 184 masterpieces by both Italian and foreign artists, such as Titian, Rubens and Picasso.

And, being a celebration of wine, it can’t but end with a wine tasting session for the visitors, who will also enjoy some lovely views of L’Arena.

From Palazzo Victoria, we invite you to delight both your eyes and your palate in Verona!

Happy Birthday William Shakespeare!

399 years ago a genius was born; he was named William Shakespeare. For some people it is unclear whether he actually existed or not, but what everybody agrees with is that the plays signed by Shakespeare marked a turning point in universal literature.

Verona is a privileged town because the English playwright used it as the set for three of his plays, including the worldwide famous Romeo and Juliet.

To celebrate Shakespeare’s anniversary, several activities will take place in Verona between tomorrow, April 24th, and Sunday, April 26th, including performances in the city center, conferences and events for children.

From Palazzo Victoria we invite you to strut your hour upon the stage and to live the magic in the city of love.
