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!

Take a right turn off Piazza Della Erbe and go under the Arco Della Costa where a huge bone said to be the rib of a whale has hung for centuries and you will discover Piazza dei Signori. Quieter than the nearby Erbe square, this elegant Piazza has massive buildings some dating from the 12th century such as the Palazzo... More

And statue of Dante. Serene. But not a lot of activity so not a lot to say about it. Pastels away from other monuments and statues.

Piazza dei Signori is a wonderful square in the centre of verona, containing some beautiful architecture and often super small markets... When visiting Piazza die Signori make sure you take time to look up at the high walls and the detailed architectural features. Some excellent photo opportunities.

The piazza is just next to piazza delle erbe, but much more calm and quiet. The buildings all over are fabulus and the statue of Dante is very beautiful.You can sit in one restaurant there, especially if it is summer and just observe all the buildings around you, you will be impressed from the beautiful architectural details. The piazza is... More

I would call this wonderful Piazza the hidden gem next to the Piazza delle Erbe! We recently spent a few days in the wonderful town of Verona, and we were lucky enough to have an apartment between the Piazza delle Erbe and this Piazza. This piazza is dominated by a statue of Dante, but also contains many architecturally significant buildings.... More

The piazza is not as pack or crowded as other piazza but the architectures of the surrounding building is stunning. My wife insisted of visiting the place due to Dante's statue because of the book 'Inferno'. Quiet but Significant!

It's quieter and in my opinion its architecture is stunning. A place to see during the day and during the night (the lights, the locals...so lovely)
