We stayed 2 nights at this outstanding B&B in the hills above Verona. Fulvio was an outstanding host...he gave us excellent spot-on info on the easiest way to park/navigate the main sights in Verona and a side trip to Lake Garda. His place was started as a restaurant and later added a lodging option, and the restaurant dominates the place.... More

We visited Il Porcellino twice as a restaurant and not as a B & B last september. The only thing we regret is that we learned to know Il Porcellino too late on our stay, if not we should have dined there each night. Fantastic local food at reasonable prices and a 200 % friendly service. Worth to climb for... More

What an oasis from the tourist storm! You need a car, and you need the nerve to negotiate the hair-pin mountain turns, but Il Porcellino is worth it all. High in the hills above Verona, Il Porcellino is a great retreat. It's quiet at night and the elevation is cool on hot summer days. Innkeeper Fulvio will great you with... More

We were four guys doing a whirlwind tour of northern Italy in a rented car. For our Verona stop my friend booked us at il Porcellino and my first thought, as we spent 15 minutes driving along narrow roads up a mountainside was, “Dude, what the hell man, we’re not even in the city!”. Turns out it was worth it,... More

We camped at Il Porcellino for 2 nights and visited Verona and Venice during this time. A wonderful location for campers with tents or camper vans who would like some peace and quiet. The bathroom is very clean and we could easily manage washing up etc. The restaurant is also of excellent quality and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and would highly recommend. It is quite difficult to find, but has amazing views of Verona. Fulvio, the owner was most obliging, helpful and at all times available to offer help. He also has very good English which was great as we didn't have that much Italian. The rooms are basic but very clean... More

Probably the highest located agroturism hotel near Verona. They have almost everything for independent lifestyle, I.e. Vine, pork, chicken, horses, sheeps, olives :)
