The beautiful city of Verona is a great place for meetings or conferences. It offers great sights, italian food and nice weather. Verona is very close to Venice and to the Largo di Garda. This offers great opportunities for day trips or for relaxing for a couple of day after a stressful project meeting.
What to do
- Standing in line at the Romeo and Julia balcony
- Watching a concert or an opera at the arena
- Having a drink in one of the nice cafes at the market place
- Enjoying Italian food
- Taking a trip to Venice (and do the boat thing)
- Go Fishing, swimming or surfing at lago di garda
- Or take a trip to the beautiful Lago Maggiore
Where to stay
- There are a lot of hotels in Verona. I wouldn’t recommend the one I stayed in, so I’m hoping for some hints in the commentaries.
- Inside Verona, the best idea is to walk. You might end up doing a lot of walking but you will see so much nice buildings. It’s worth it!!!
- If you want to get to Venice you can take a train from the central train station
- For all other locations I would suggest renting a car.
How to get there
Arriving at Verona can be quite adventurous. If you don’t fly from one of the big airports you might end up in one of these little planes:
Where to eat
- There are a lot of good restaurants in Verona. Try to avoid the tourist traps around the arena.
- Coming from the arena take a cross to the other side of the river. Prices will be much cheaper there and the quality of the food increases.
What to bring home
- Italian food that is transportable (Salami, Ham, Cheese, etc.)
- Italian wine
