Owner description: It's no wonder that this is one of the most historic and picturesque squares in Italy: in antiquity, it served as a Roman forum; today, it contains many historic buildings, sculptures with a popular and colorful market overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables.

“One of my favorite parts of Verona!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The Piazza delle Erbe was one of my favorite parts of Verona. Strolling through the market and people watching was truly enjoyable and relaxing. It can get busy here, yet it was not as busy as other sites making it a more relaxing place to stroll. If you are there on the day of the market, you can get lunch for a relatively inexpensive price while eating really good food. I highly reccommend coming here!

“Busy, Busy, Busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

So much going on here. Loads of restaurants, cafes and market stalls. One tip: if you find something you like on one of the market stalls don't buy it straight away. Go to the other stalls and you'll probably find the exact same thing for cheaper.

“Great Place for an Evening Stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Piazza Della Erbe is a great place to stroll in the evening and people watch. During the week lots of vendors sell fresh cut fruit which is delightful.

“La Dolce Vita Part II”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Great place to hang around for cocktails, aperitifs, digestifs before or after dinner. Watch people and even choirs singing in the Piazza delle Erbe, as we witnessed a choral group from Linz, Austria singing 'a capella' Queen's "Don't Stop Me Know'. It was Magical!

“Fabulous piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The square is always buzzing with activity, from passersby and also from all the cafes and restaurants around it. Very pleasant to relax and people watch at any of them.
