The piazza is lively and vibrant but a little too touristy for our taste. Food in the restaurants is decidedly average and the whole place was full of noisy tour parties on their way to the grossly commercialised Juliet's House.

Piazza delle Erbe is really the living centre of Verona, within a short walk of most of the city's attractions. Full of shops, restaurants and market stands selling souvenirs and trinkets of all sorts, it's always crowded with people, which is also it's disadvantage - it's the kind of place where you're advised to watch your bags, and it's also...

A lovely little square with lots of bars and cafes - perfect to while away an hour or two people watching and sipping the very garish looking but very tasty Spritz Campari.

Piazza Delle Erbe is maybe the place where you'll find most of the good restaurants in the city, and is surrounded by many stores where you can get yourself basically everything. If I had to compare I'd say this is a smaller version of Piazza Navona.

When I went on holiday with my parents Verona stood out to me. My parents were excited for Venice but I found it disappointing, it didn't feel like Italy. It felt like a town tailored purely for tourists. However we had a coach trip to Verona which I enjoyed immensely. Verona is how I imagined Italy to be, laid back,... More

Nice vibe to the Piazza delle Erbe, and don't forget to go up the Lamberti tower to see the views of Verona. Nice little market stalls for the tourists.
