It's no wonder that this is one of the most historic and picturesque squares in Italy: in antiquity, it served as a Roman forum; today, it contains many historic buildings, sculptures with a popular and colorful market overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables.

We had a room in Pallazo Maffei overlooking Piazza delle Erbe. The view from the balcony is unbelievable at any time of the day/night. I dont remember the name of the cafe just accross the entrance from Pallazo Maffei, but we had coffee 2-3 times a day. Just so you know, if you take your espresso while standing next to... More

This is one of my favourite parts of the city. The buildings are amazing. There is a great atmosphere, due to the market, the crowds and the many cafes which line the square. You can sit outside and watch the world go by even in winter, thanks to the patio heaters!

I was here on a Sunday morning, along Via Mazzini from Piazza Bra getting here is very easy. I saw so many Italian cities, but this is one of the best ever. It is surrounded by historic buildings, ancient monuments and sensational. When I came that morning there was a market that took up the whole square, stood out among... More

Go upon the pedestrian street on the left from the Arena and turn up the side street towards the end and you come to plenty of market stalls selling the usual tourist fare. Each similar. To the end historic buildings and not far from Juliet's House.

Although the vendors are not exactly selling quality items, this small piazza is classic Italy. A great place to stroll and people watch.

When we decided to go to Verona we did no research at all, we were in the area, jumped on a local bus and an hour later we were in town. We got off the bus, made a note of where we were and off we went. We wandered into the square after following our noses and what a sight,... More

Verona's market square is beautiful and is not to be missed on a visit. The mix of art and architecture from different periods and styles adds to the charm.

A lovely square, quaint and traditional rather spoiled by market stalls run by non Italians flogging all the usual tat! Nice surroundings though and worth a visit.

This major piazza in the center of old Verona is surrounded by ancient buildings, some still with traces of frescoes. Still used as an open air market. One can almost feel an echo of Montague and Capulet footsteps. Extra special during Christmas holidays.
