We found the Piazza Bra to be the vibrant active Heart of Verona, with its open space surrounded by shops, bars, restaurants, attractions and market. Take a seat at a bar & enjoy all of the activity. Ciao!

It's a great place to people watch and there is lots to see right around it...the arena, monuments and statues. Lots of places to get something to eat and/or drink.

Busting with activity and a central point for transportation and jumping on tours etc. Not as quaint as some of the smaller Piazzas but definitely worth walking through.

Piazza Bra is the highlight of Verona. Open air restaurants; plenty of seating; great people watching; wonderful ice cream. Easy access to downtown shopping and the arena. You cannot go wrong starting your visit to Verona in Piazza Bra.

Okay... this is just a plaza. Nothing more to note, but they have huge events, markets, and other goings on all the time. Beware the restaurants. Not bad, but over priced for the tourist trade. Go a block off the plaza and you’ll find many...More

Inexpensive bars and restaurants outside the Arena in a crescent shape with pedestrian access only. Well recommend.

Day trip- 30th birthday itinerary & dinner recommendation (3 Replies)
We will be visiting Verona from Bologna for a day to celebrate my boyfriends 30th birthday next month (24/05). Our train arrives at 12.30pm & we would like to see as many of Veronas highlights as possible before getting the train back to Bologna at 9pm. I have put together a draft itinerary but could someone tell me if this is all do-able in the time we have please? We dont plan on spending too much time at each place, but would like to see the main sights & just wander through the streets...More

Its rather busy for me. Be aware that from the train station to Piazza Bra it is about a 15-20 minute walk.
