Verona Stories and Tips

Getting Around Verona

Verona was our first stop on a 3 centre break and we flew into Venice Treviso Airport from the UK. We were leaving from Venice, so this made sense for us. Verona does have its own airport, but it took us only 1.5 hours to drive there in our hire car from Treviso. The journey was easy and very scenic - we used the toll roads.

We hired a car - to use for the remainder of our holiday, but once we arrived in Verona we parked it in our hotel's garage, and did not use it again until we left the city.

The city centre of Verona is compact and it is easy to visit without having a car. Over the past few years, the city council authorities have encouraged local residents to limit their traffic circulation as much as possible in the city centre to reduce the level of pollution.

The city lies alongside the banks of the S shaped Adige river. Everything of interest is in the Centro Storico on the south side of the river's loop - there is no sight that cannot easily and enjoyably be reached on foot.

Verona really does lend itself to walking and strolling and the sights are concentrated in a few blocks of each other. Seek out the narrow, cobblestoned side streets - they are beautiful. Park you car here and let your feet do the transporting.
