Great piazza for eating and visiting the market. Imagine it would be more impressive when the stalls are cleared. Reminded me of Markt piazza in Venice but on a smaller scale. Worth visiting and fairly central to other sites of interest.

I visited on a Sunday in the summer. The square was full of Veronese (locals) relaxing, walking, chatting. Great spot.

Just behind the main square, this is bustling but calmer and cooler with a couple of restaurant/bars which we frequented to rest our hot feet and have a spritzer. Steeped in history.

I love this square also called Piazza Dante vecause of the statue of Dante in the middle. It is an impressive square with restaurants inside.

Cute, kinda hidden piazza. Charming and lot more quiet and smaller than Piazza Bra and Piazza delle Erbe. Didnt really feel the charm of this Piazza compared to Bra and Delle Erbe. Did stop to take some pictures but thats all.

Bordering the Piazza delle Erbe,the Piazza dei Signori is different in shape,style and atmosphere;and probably the most elegant square in Verona.It is bordered by the most elegant and stylish palaces,and at its centre contains the monument to the poet and author Dante,who found refuge in Verona after escaping Florence

When entering this piazza, it is hard not to keep clicking away on the camera, there are so many ornate buildings at every turn.

Great place to take in the history but not seats or places to relax. You can see the facades if the Signori palaces and ponder life in that time. They do have an area dug up where you can see under thick glass the remnants of streets if the time.

We heard classical music coming from the piazza and we knew this place was a special. A city with an unique vibe that gives you happy memories.

I enjoyed watching the wonderful life of Verona sitting in the Piazza. The square was surrounded by historic government buildings and beautiful palace facades. I shopped for fresh fruits in the open-air market and relaxed with a cup of fine Italian espresso in the elegant cafe. The lion column above the stalls was amazing and so as the gurgling fountain....
