Boutique hotels in Verona (7)

Let’s get one thing straight - Verona is so, so much more than ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Yes, this is perhaps Italy’s most romantic city after Venice and Rome, but there’s something for all tastes. Whether it’s for a romantic weekender, or a hardcore culture crawl, visitors will fall in love with what they find here. 

Where to go
Yes, you must see Juliet’s Balcony - pay close attention to the statue. Then, once you’ve done that, eat, drink and shop at the quiant and quirky markets of Piazza delle Erbe. Walk the bridges that cross the Adige river - a great stop for photographers, as the views are divine. See one of the best preserved roman gladiatorial arenas at the Verona Arena, famed for the beauty of its construction. Explore the medieval Castelvecchio, with its collection of priceless Renaissance art. Shop for fashion on the Corso Porta Borsari and make sure you stop at the Profumeria Carlotta, stocking beautiful scents from around the world.

Food & Drink
Welcome to Verona - you’re in risotto country now. This is the city that perfected the wild rice dish, blending it with delicious ingredients. If you’re brave, the Veronese also do some amazing things with horse and donkey meat, though we won’t blame you if you pass. Of the city’s eateries, we recommend La Fontanina (Portichetti Fontanelle 3) for the great Veronese cooking, lashings of atmosphere and a 200 year vintage. Otherwise, head to Al Pompiere (Vicolo Regina d'Ungheria 5) - it may seem an unassuming trattoria, but the lengthy wine list and several house  specialities are sure to have you wanting to return.

Verona fairly bustles with nightlife - the Veneto region is one that loves loitering with a glass of wine or three. Our Veronese favourites include Rivamacina (Via Quadrelli 1), a riverside bar known for cocktails, great (low-key) live music and an excellent aperitivo buffet. Elsewhere, the Caffè Filippini (Piazza delle Erbe) has been around since 1901, serving the wonderful (and strong) ‘Filipinni’, made with vermouth, gin and lemon. A ‘must-do’ for visitors.

Where to stay
The Gentlemen of Verona is a romantic bolthole for ‘star cross’d lovers’ - cosy, intimate and luxurious, with a superb restaurant. If that wasn’t enough, this boutique hotel boasts the Blue Spa, offering bespoke treatments to unwind and relax. Byblos Art Hotel Amista, twenty minutes from the city, is a boutique hotel in an 15th-century villa, rebuilt in the 18th century and full of original antiques. The spa, two restaurants and bar are sure to provide exactly what you need. Finally, the Escalus Luxury Suites combine chic, modern room styling with excellent, attentive service - perfect for a couple’s weekend.
