Verona City Guide
Verona Travel Tips
- Many sights and restaurants are closed on Monday. Most sights and museums are free on the first Sunday of every month.
- Simple courtesies – Verona has a small-town vibe and the mentality to go with it. Be sure to greet locals and shopkeepers with a “buongiorno” and thank them or say good bye upon leaving. A smile can go a long way.
- Piazza delle Erbe is Verona’s most famous square and is well worth a look, but most of what is for sale at its market stalls is tacky and overpriced. If this is one of the first places you visit in Verona, be aware that you’ll find better items elsewhere.
