A market by day, an eatery by night. Verona is full of exterior wall murals in various states of wear, but the Piazza Erbe included some of the best and most complete murals we encountered.

The historical sites are great here, truly wonderful, however, it is cheapened by so many trinket stands. Most seemed to be staffed by foreigners not Italians. Items made in China also. Just not my thing. However, as evening came and the shopping stands closed up the night life started. Great places to meet friends for drinks and dinner.

We've walked round the square a few times both when there has been a market and not. The market itself is OK - nothing special - but the buildings around the piazza and the statues/monuments are great. Certainly worth a visit as it's nit far from many of the other attractions in Verona.

Very nice place to just sit and look at the people passing by, much, much better on sundays as the marked is not there, because on saturday there is a lot of booths that takes away the nice view of the square and the nice surrounding buildings.

If you look up past all the tourist trappings, you discover a place with a lot of history and beautiful buildings. The whole Europe is full of tourists this time of a year. We are trying to avoid the "touristy"places, yet we are tourists too. One has to expect that the best places will be crowded. We were planning to... More

If you have a tour guide or book, or you do some research, this is a fascinating glimpse into the city's history!

I loved the beautiful sights and all the shops that were everywhere - on both sides of the walkways. They even had a Disney shop/store which was so cool! And the food stores were amazing. This is definitely a beautiful place for people who love shopping like me and enjoy trying new foods and seeing magnificent views across the town... More

This square has everything and can be crowded without feeling overbearing. It is a piazza with old markets, coffee shops, historical towers, important ancient monuments like The Winged Lion of Venice, great house facades, statues and lots of citizens and tourists going about this beautiful space. It is steeped in history and is very alive and happy.

This is quite a tourist trap, if you decide to do some souvenir shopping and go to restaurants. However it is a must do in Verona. Just go there to enjoy the architecture and the view.

this is another central area that you can not avoid in Verona - it leads to so many important monuments. It also has a number of restaurants and stalls selling tourist souvenirs. This is really a tourist trap worth walking thru but keep looking up and see the lovely buildings - do not bother with the really tat being sold.
