I spent three lovely nights at the B&B all'Opera. It is only steps to the Piazza Bra and the ancient Roman arena, but perfectly quiet. Everything a visitor is likely to find of interest is within an easy walk. The proprietors are utterly charming. Lucianno, one of the owners, greeted me warmly, providing many tips about things to see and some great local restaurants. He speaks excellent English. The breakfast is ample and delicious, with baked goods that Lucianno's wife makes from scratch--yummy!!!
My room was immaculate with a great mattress and thoroughly modern bathroom. Located on the top floor, it was accessed via a staircase. My aerie had a view over the rooftops of Verona. Here's one example of the unbelievable customer service: Lucianno walked with me several blocks to the car park and rode back to the hotel with me so that I wouldn't get lost threading my way through the tiny streets and pedestrian areas that surround the hotel.
One note: the B&B all'opera would not be appropriate if you can't handle some steps. There is an elevator, but you must climb approximately 8 steps from ground level to the start of the elevator. If your room, like mine, is in the attic, there is another flight of steps to negotiate.
While tempted to keep this my secret, I feel obligated to share my experiences; Lucianno and his wife deserve a 100% occupancy rate. I can't wait to return to Verona for more opera performances and more nights at the B&B all'Opera.
