“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Be sure to take some panoramic shots when you're there; the view is amazing.
The square is huge and is packed with people, so beware of pickpockets. And don't fall prey by taking a photo with the people dressed up in costumes; they ask for money afterwards and it's usually a rip off.

“great place to people watch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Some great places to eat just off the main square and a place to sit and watch the world go by especially on Opera nights at the Arena

“Busy!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Everyone visits Piazza Bra when in Verona - you cant help it - its where the Arena is located and also the start of the main shopping street - via mazzini.
Its busy, the restaurants don't seem to be that great in the Piazza. We enjoyed just visiting for the Arena and preferred to eat off the Piazza.

“Largest piazza in Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The first thing you notice when entering the piazza is the Roman amphitheatre, you can imagine how amazing it would have been with 30,000 spectators shouting and cheering on the gladiators. While in Piazza Bra make sure to check out the town hall, Palazzo Barbieri, named after Giuseppe Barbieri. There is plenty of shops and bars to explore and the main street leads up to the Piazza delle Erbe where you will find a market and nearby Juliet's house and the famous balcony.
