We went around Verona by foot the whole day. It is a small, lovely city. Climbing the stairs is definitely worth it! When you get to the top, sit down and enjoy the view. You won't get it anywhere else.

What i like most about it is that there are not so much tourists. You don't have to fight for your spot. Relaxing, indeed.

The walk up the stairs from across the old bridge from the medieval town, next to the Roman theatre, is not steep and you will be stopping often to look back at the unfolding view through the Cyprus trees. You could drive if very lazy or infirm. You get a much nicer view than from the top of the Torre Lamberti as you are higher up and can see the whole old town in one vista. Have a nice quiet relax on the car park walls before strolling back down the stairs. The Castel itself is not worth seeing, just come on up for the free view.

Climb up the stairs from Ponte Pietra for 10 minutes and you will be rewarded with the best view upon Verona. Nothing else to add, go there and enjoy it!!!

Walk out of the city centre across the medieval bridge over the Adige river, scenic by itself, look back at the pretty facades, and then take the short, steep climb up to castle S Pietro towering high above. (You could drive, too, but isn't it nice to burn some of those calories from the fantastic food you just have sampled somewhere in the old town, be it sweet or salty?) Commanding views over the city and the surrounding hills are well worth the effort!

Well worth the hike for the great views of Verona, the River and the surrounding area. The castle itself is all boarded up so not much to see there which is a shame.
