Love is forever in the air in Verona, a city steeped in history and romance. Best known for its role in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the city attracts a multinational flock of tourists to its pretty piazzas and maze-like lanes.
Beyond its Renaissance-style charm, Verona is a bustling metropolis, its core dominated by a mammoth, remarkably well-preserved 1st-century amphitheater. Throw in countless churches, awe-inspiring bridges, sumptuous food and wine, and impressive art, and the city shapes up as one of Italy’s most eclectic gems.
Brimming with timeless beauty, Verona’s hotels radiate romance and well-being and range from gorgeous townhouse boutiques to mansions that mix modern with the traditional. Here are my favorite cool and unique hotels in Verona, Italy (in no particular order).
