It's really strange that this square can be so different from neighboring Piazza delle Erbe, but in a good way. It feels much quieter and has a very noble approach. This was the place where the rulers of Verona (The Scaglieri family) built their palaces and official buildings among them Palazzo di Cansignorio and Palazzo del Podestá. The whole square is surrounded by magnificent palazzos and in the middle stands Dante Alighieri (who lived in Verona for a while in exile from Florence) looking out over the largest of them; the Palazzo della Ragione which for a long time served as the city's powerhouse. If you go into the courtyard of the Palazzo della Ragione you can walk up a magnificent renaissance staircase. Personally I'm also fond of the patented Italian loggias and Piazza dei Signori is no exception with its beautiful Loggia del Consiglio.

Very close to piazza della Erbe, this piazza was the power centre of Verona and is also known as Piazza Dante. The figures atop the surrounding palazzos represent worthy Veronese citizens. It’s close to the Scaligeri tombs and is surrounded by restaurants.

Verona is an exceptionally beautiful city with a rich history. It is full of beautiful buildings, palaces, streets, churches and squares. One of the most significant and one of the most beautiful squares is the Piazza dei Signori. At this square we came from Piazza delle Erbe and through the pass Arco della Costa. It is surrounded by beautiful palaces in which decisions were made on the cultural, economic and political life of Verona. We especially enjoyed the splendid Palazzo Loggia del Consiglio, the Palazzo degli Scaligeri (who were Signori di Verona from 1260 to 1387), on the one hand, as well as in the beauty of Palazzo del Capitano and Palazzo della Ragione on the other side of the square. Both were built in the 14th century.
In the center of the square finds the monument to Dante (1865), statue of 3 meters in Carrara white marble. We enjoyed in beautiful architecture and in the spirit of medieval Verona.

This is where you'll find Dante, the statue, and the popular Dante Café, especially with locals. It is also the seat of the government of the province.

Through an arch leading from Piazza delle Erbe is a small square with a central monument to Dante.It also leads to Lamberti Tower. A couple of restaurants offer a relaxing rest during the day but more bustling in the evening.

We passed through the Arco della Costa, heading from Piazza delle Erbe to Pizza dei Signori, to look at the beautiful old buildings for which this square is known (architecturally and historically). Instead, we came upon a huge Christmas market and could barely see beyond the myriad stalls and throngs of people. I had to edge my way to the square's boundaries for a closeup glimpse of each structure instead of enjoying more of a panorama.

I especially liked the Renaissance-inspired Loggia del Consiglio as well as the Palazzo del Capitano and Palazzo della Ragione, both dating back to the 14th century. I also admired the monument to Italian poet Dante Alighieri. Crafted from white marble, the statue went up in 1865 and stands in the middle of the piazza. Dante stayed in a residence here centuries ago during his exile from Florence.

I thought this piazza was well worth a visit and assume that the big rectangle is much easier to amble through when a Christmas market is not in progress.

A neighbor to Piazza della Erbe, Piazza dei Signori is a much more peaceful, relaxing environment surrounded by beautiful palaces, statue of Dante, and several decent restaurants. Lamberti Tower overlooks the piazza and several other sights are withing a few short minutes walk. Stop by for a bite to eat or an afternoon cocktail.
