Located in the very heart of Verona, majestically marked by the Torre dei Lamberti, it is the place to buy souvenirs and trinkets to remind you of Verona. You must absolutely climb up the Torre ( tower)-free with Verona Card- so you can enjoy the views over Verona from all sides. Beware: the bells toll every hour and you can... More

It is an open air market, really nice to visit. You can find beautiful souvenirs, unfortunately too much expensive to buy it (of course, because it is touristic). In the centre of the piazza you have a beautiful fountain.

This was 10 mins from our hotel and now has the tourist market with plenty of tatt but also a good selection of hats if you need one as I did! Plenty of restaurants and divine fresh fruit served in sundae glasses the young locals devoured. Really good on a hot day - as well as the ice cream -... More

great to wander round, choose a restaurant to sit at and just take it all in. there is a market in the centre but the whole Piazza is definitely worth a visit. try out different places to sit, then go off to visit other little lanes off the Piazza. lots to see around here.

I loved Verona and found this square to be one of the most attractive I've seen. It gets very busy as Juliets balcony is not far, so its swarming with tourists. But when you take time to look up at the bulidings you are transported in time.

This is a nice little square but there's a real lack of places to sit down. There was a nice little market filling most of the piazza when we visited, It's close to Juliets Balcony and there are some interesting little archaeology sites nearby where the old ruins have been preserved or embedded into newer developments,

In my opinion the best square in Verona. It is a good place to have coffee or sth good to eat. It is of course full of tourists and pickpockets so watch your belongings.

As soon as I hit the Piazza, my jaw dropped. It was like walking back in time, to the Renaissance, with sumptuous italian classic beauty, surrounded with fun/chic shops and cafe's, in which to enjoy a "Spritz and chips" with the locals. Really loved it. The rest of Verona follows through the splinter arch ways and side streets. Great place!
