Born in Verona, I have vivid memories of this splendid Palazzo and the time I used to spend admiring it through the ancient Roman passageway of Porta Borsari.
Today, the opportunity of having purchased it after 40 years spent abroad, dedicated entirely to the luxury hotel business, arouses two strong emotions in me: the first is clearly one of great joy, the second is being vested with a great responsibility to my city.
Verona has a rich history and culture as well as being, in the collective imagination, one of the most romantic destinations in the world. It has been my wish to create in Palazzo Victoria a place where everyone can feel at home from the very first second but also a meeting place where the combination of styles can inspire the desire to meet different people and cultures. A sort of agora where visitors and the people of Verona have an opportunity to meet so that their stay in our city becomes an experience they remember for a long time but also a splendid home to set off from to discover everything that Verona, and the Veneto region in general, have to offer.
I look forward to seeing you to extend my personal welcome,

President of the Salviatino Collection
HISTORY AND LOCATION
Palazzo Victoria stands in the ancient heart of the city of Verona, which is today even more lively, just a few steps away from the Arena and directly on Corso di Porta Borsari, one of the main streets, full of elegant shops but also delightful restaurants and cafés, which ends in the sumptuous Piazza delle Erbe.
Palazzo Victoria represents the co-existence over a thousand years of arts, cultures and architectural innovations: starting from the ancient Roman remains, which can be seen under the hotel and which make our hotel the first museum to visit when you arrive in the city, to the medieval frescoes and the present day with the splendid hall in exquisitely contemporary style, furnished with the sofas and armchairs by Gaetano Pesce, the unquestioned Maestro of Italian design.
Palazzo Victoria today, with its inner courtyard in typical Veronese style, but also with the original Zen garden and with the spacious and definitely contemporary lobby, as well as with the spaces dedicated to leisure (our pool table is always ready for use!) aims to be a new square in Verona. A sort of agora which encourages different cultures to meet, inspired by the encounter between the different historical periods which can be clearly perceived inside the Palazzo. Undoubtedly elegant surroundings, but also pleasantly informal where technology, history and culture meet in harmony.
