Verona For a Day

by Admin 27-Jan 2010

 

Q. We will be in Verona for only 24 hours. What are your recommendations of things not to miss and good places to eat. 

Thanking you in Advance, 

Dan P.

A. Obviously you must visit the Arena di Verona. Next is the Roman theatre across the river from the downtown area. It also has an archaeological museum inside. Torre dei Lamberti, the former town hall is a 12th century tower that can be climbed for a fantastic view of the city. From a courtyard behind the tower, there is an entrance to a museum with the remains of a Roman era home complete with a rich mosaic floor. This archaeological site was discovered 20 years ago while building a new garage. The garage never happened.

Restaurant — La Taverna di Via Stella, classic osteria – on Via Stella 5/c which is a street connecting the main Piazza Bra with via Cappello — where Giuletta’s (Juliet of Romeo and Juliet) house is located. It’s basically right around the corner from Giulietta's home. Closed Monday afternoon and Wednesdays. Call ahead for a reservation: 045 8008008

How can you leave out the 12 Apostoli restaurant in Verona. I have eaten there many times and found it worth the price. If they like you and you know to ask they will give you a tour of the cellar that is built over an old Roman road. Certainly a treat.
