Just 5min from the apartment, an hidden beautiful modest church that you have to see if you want to leave touristic places and feel the real Verona. In warm season, with the sun, it gives the best. I love the peaceful sensation that it makes me feel.

Someone says that is one of the most beautiful and intact 16th century artistic troves in the city. To see: wooden inlays in the Choir and Sacristy, realized in 1494 by Fra’ Giovanni da Verona, with illusionist wardrobes open with books and other stuff inside.

There is a legend linked to this square, in particular to one of the statue (Girolamo Fracastoro with a ball in his hand, the world) placed in one of the access points, originally the street to the tribunal. The legend say that the ball will fall on the head of the first honest man that will pass under it. Unfortunately is still in its place! Also known as Piazza Dante, the square has a statue of Dante. Dante was a friend of Cangrande della Scala, most famous Scaliger ruler of Verona (the last part of Divina Commedia is in his honor).

It’s the most famous attraction in Verona and you already know it. I just want to give you a couple of tips: -if you are planning to visit it in high season, please note that there will be a huge line! Check in internet the Verona Card that will let you skip the line. -if you love art and music, in the Arena there are plenty events all over the year. There are concerts, opera and ballets and, trust me, it’s a real good and unique experience to do. -if you want to eat watching the Arena you can find plenty touristic places near there...but if you want to eat as locals, I can show you some other places.

It’s a paradise on earth: you can easily spend a day there, walking or cycling between flowers and ponds with big beautiful fish. There is also a well designed maze, high enough to have real fun. Perfect to have a picnic, chill out and have a romantic time, I suggest one day for it. It’s 1.30h by bus from here.

It’s a beautiful place 1.20h from here (direct bus 105, stop at few meters from the apartment). You will need shoes to walk on trails and it’s absolutely forbidden to touch the water or walk in it because of the unique ecosystem of the area and the presence of endangered species. Price 7€, not open every time of the year! For who loves the adventure and don’t want to pay for the touristic park, there is a beautiful trail outside the park along the torrent and you can really have fun but only if you are experienced!! In this one you will find the Tibetan bridge of Val sorda.

Il pozzo dell’amore 💕

There is an ancient well near Piazza Erbe, in vicolo Pozzo San Marco, linked to a sad romantic legend: a young soldier who had fallen in love with the beautiful Isabella Donati. She seemed not to reciprocate the love and so, after a lot of trying, once they met at the well, he told her that she seemed cold like winter water. She challenged him to jump down to try the water and he sad obeyed. In reality she loved him and so desperately she threw her self down to stay with him forever.

During the all winter time you must try “bollito con pearà” especially if it is served on the typical cart! Also “polenta” served with “osei” (birds) or mushrooms, cheese and “soppressa” (a soft kind of our salami). In Christmas period we eat “pandoro” 💕 a soft leaven cake or “panettone”. During carnival we eat “fritole” and “galani” (that can also be called “grostoli” o “bugie”), sweet fried goodness, and “gnocchi”, made with potatoes and flour, that you can find with different kind of dressing (tomatoes souce, meat, sugar and cinnamon, ....). Try them in our restaurants!
