Piazza Bra is where everything happens. There is a lot of restaurants and places to drink and eat snacks. There are arts and crafts, live statues, musicians and, of course, the Lamberti Tower. You can just hang out there and see things happening (or be part of it!).

This is a great place to sit, enjoy some light refreshment, people watch and wonder about the ancient Roman Coliseum in front of you. There are Roman ruins throughout the city and other plazas but this one is worth a stop.

I had no expectations of Verona. I wanted to put a lock on Juliet's gate, but hadn't thought past that. Piazza Bra in the heart of Verona was an unexpected delight. This was the perfect location to sit with a cappuccino and people watch from one of many charming cafes. Between the arches, arena, and central fountain you won't find... More

A perfect place to watch the world go by, while sipping a coffee in one of the many lovely cafes. A stunning square, dominated by the well preserved Arena. One of the nicest Piazzas in Italy! Highly recommended!!!

Friendly and not overly expensive restaurants all overlooking the Arena. The trees and fountain in the middle were lovely by day but slightly intimidating at night (street drinkers etc)

Great place to stare and wonder at the Arena and just watch people go by. The choice of food and drink is amazing and despite its vast size it is clean and tidy and doesn't have a touristy feel to it like so many such places suffer from.

Amazing on a sunny day, plenty of outdoor cafés to sit outside for lunch and a few drinks. Cantine della Arena has amazing food and reasonably priced. Great architecture.

A very pretty piazza with shops, restaurants, and of course the Roman arena which is still used today for concerts and shows. The food prices in the adjacent restaurants were decent. We were with a very large group (>100) and everyone found something they were happy with eating. There was plenty of people watching to be had. We waked around... More

This is a perfect place to stroll around; stop at one of the sidewalk cafes for a meal and an aperol spritz. The perfect, relaxing Italian evening.
