This area offers an excellent vantage point of the city and it is fun to get up there by using the funicular.

Nice for an explore and walk, beautiful views! The best view of the whole of verona, take a bottle of water if going when hot, as its uphill walking!

Definitely worth a healthy hike up the hill to see the panorama view of the city. The bridge (Ponte Pietra) across the river leading to the hill was very beautiful. It was getting too hot so we took the funicular down.

The walk up is a great way to work off some of the previous evening's food and wine! When you get to the top you are rewarded with stunning views over the city - well worth a visit!!

The view from top is magnificent. 270degrees panorama of Verona. Totally different from the one gets from top of the Torre di Lambert. Worth the two euro for return trip. In this heat, provided you have Verona card, take bus 33 from Castelveccio, and get...More

It is 300 metres and about 7 minutes to walk. I didn't count the steps though :-)
