Another important and beautiful square of Verona. Piazza Signori positioned a short distance from the "Scaligers Arks" the famous Gothic tombs. The square is breathtaking scenery, it also surrounded by beautiful and ancient buildings, the view of the tower Lamberti is sublime. Undoubtedly recognize it by the statue of the famous Dante Alighieri, located right in the middle of it.

Old small square in the middle of Verona old town. Some cafes and stalls around. It's almost impossible to miss since it's very close to other attractions.

This lovely and historic piazza becomes even more special during the Christmas season when filled with holiday market stalls. The huge Christmas tree and decorations make December nights glow. The surrounding architecture is impressive but the size of the square is small enough to feel intimate.

Wonderful square with Dante's statue taking centre stage Surrounded by open air cafes - ideal place to chill and relax with a Spritz. We were serenaded by an Opera singer when we were there which was lovely

It is close to Piazza delle Erbe and almost part of the same area and is said to be the most distinguished and elegant place in Verona. I has cafes and on a sunny day it is lovely to sit and admire the stunning archigecture which includes a monument to Dante. You can also view the famous Porta Bombardiera which... More

The main area of Piazza Delle Erbe is very busy and this square is just a few steps away. It is quiet, with a couple of nice restaurants and monumental buildings, like the entrance to Torre Lamberti. If you are in Escher, just take a look at the buildings, courts and stairs - it will ring a bell.

It would be easy to wander through trying to get to Piazza Erbe and miss taking the time to check out this very beautiful square. Fabulous architecture and pretty little cafes and restaurants.

This piazza is metres away from Piazza Delle Erbe and should be allocated some time to enjoy the Palladio buildings, The Statue of Dante and The Torre Lamberti in an adjacent courtyard. It is quieter and in my opinion lacks the spirit and liveliness of Piazza Delle Erbe but still a must.

If you restricted by time and only can do few things, the reserve some time for this square. Strangely enough it is only a few yard from Piazza delle Erbe but barely had any tourists. Beautiful architecture, that reminded me a bit a Venice. Just loved it!
