This is a beautiful Piazza full of Verona history with fresco walls and protected historic buildings. It is one of the City's hubs of activities and close to Juliet's balcony so expect lots of tourists, hustle and bustle but sit in one of the many cafes and watch the world go by. There is also a market selling the usual... More

If you are going to Verona this is the place, have a drink or coffee and watch the well dressed people walk by. Admire the surroundings and enjoy Verona

Start your tour of Verona somewhere here... the stalls in the center of the square offers fresh fruit, souvenirs and lots of other memorabilia. The restaurants are also really good for coffee or lunch! The square is beautiful, clean and always packed with people. Gives it a lively buzz. Recommend!

Very busy with loads of tourists and expensive ice cream shops and bars. Sort of a permanent market in the middle selling tourist trinkets etc. OK to walk through but unless you look above all of the tourist bits or visit there on a quiet day you'll miss the lovely buildings around the square.

Lots of cafes surround the square but the historic buildings really catch your eye . Look out for the whalebone hanging in one of the arches. There was a small market on during our visit

Verona is a beautiful, beautiful city and nothing sums it up better than this piazza. It's quaint, the buildings are stunning and you can almost feel the history dripping off them. If you go to Verona and miss this, you'll regret it!!

This place is so beautiful with too many people, if you just sit down and look at the design and architecture of the building around the Piazza you need around 1 hour. I really enjoying sitting there..

Apparently rated as one of the most beautiful in all of Italy, this piazza did not disappoint. Although a little small and somewhat elongated this piazza was very pretty with the external frescos on the buildings facing into the piazza.

if you hang around until early evening (sat in a bar useful!) the market packs up and you get decent views of the square itself. Beautiful buildings.
