“nice accomodation but unfriendly locals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2010

This was perhaps the most interesting place we stayed in while travelling in Italy. On the plus side the accomodation itself was very nice and was very well priced (70 euro per night) and Verona itself was amazing. The Casa is located in a small village called Avesa and it is easy enough to catch a bus in and out of Verona. On the down side, the owners were away for the 2 night s we stayed and we were looked after by a nice enough young girl - but communication in English was a problem. We received no information about Verona or Avesa, which was incredible given that Avesa was holding a Fiesta over 2 nights (the nights we were staying) in the lawned area directly outside the Casa (and behind the church). Breakfast was limited and average. Now the most amazing part of our stay was the total unfriendliness of the locals, which was in stark contrast with how we found other areas of Italy. We took the opportunity to drop into the fiesta on both evenings and felt very unwelcomed. This extended to the following day when locals refused to say hello or even acknoweldge us when we said hello. I get the impression that tourists are not welcome in Avesa, which is a sahme because the accomodation itself is good.

We stayed just for one night, which was a shame. Verona is modern and beautiful, and a good base to explore the Garda region. The B&B is clean and cosy, with large bedrooms. It's located in a residential area, so you need to take a bus downtown or take a scenic walk for a restaurant (don't walk on the road, there is a more apropriated passage on the field). We actually didn't meet the owners, but Miriam, the receptionist, provide us a warm reception and good breakfast in the morning.

Was picked up at train station promptly by Massimo, the owner. Room was ready and clean, well decorated with exotic fabrics. Massimo can tell you the whole story of the rehab of this prior convent. Next to a church, so bells are wonderful. If your windows and doors are closed, bells are subtle. But when you open the windows/doors, the bells sound wonderful! Need to take a bus into town. Bus runs until about midnight so after that, taxi is the way to get home. Went from Piazza Erbe to B&B for 10Euro, fyi. Buses can be difficult to navigate once in town so ask Massimo specifically where stops are for easier transport. Al Capital is a restaurant w/in walking distance of B&B that is very good. So you can certainly spend a day in Avesa at their local pubs, with two restaurants in the evening to choose from. All w/in walking distance. Grocery store is nearby for snacks, etc. Breakfast is an italian one, meaning light. There was a different cake each day, yogurt, cereal, juice, and espresso/cappuccino. Massimo was very friendly and outgoing so you can surely ask him to take you round for local highlights if he has time. He also offered to pick us up from the opera, that was the day we took the taxi. We are now considering going to stay in his apartments in Sardegna!

My partner and I went to Verona for just two nights to watch AIDA at the Arena. We found Casa Magnani on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed at all. Its a very clean, nice looking/furnished B&B just 2 km out of the old centre of Verona. The breakfast was delicious too, especially the fresh cappuccino and selfmade cake.
Massimo even picked us up at 1am after the opera and gave us tipps and a map for further explorations around Lake Garda.
We had a wonderful stay and can strongly recommend this B&B!

We had a great stay at this B&B in Verona, which is located 1.5 km outside the old town centre. Having seen no previous reviews, but admiring their website, we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. It is more like a very small boutique hotel, with great attention to detail.

Our room was very spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated, with a hip Moroccan feel, rich fabrics and wood-beamed ceilings. Everything was clean and spotless, including the private bathroom. The room all the features you'd want, including satellite TV, A/C, a desk area and a safe. A nice touch was the tray of bottled water and mints left in our room. Our room was low-lit, though this was surely intentional, as it fit the peaceful mood of the room (I did walk by another room that was light and bright).

The owners are a lovely young couple, who are both fluent in English and are very well-traveled themselves. The breakfast area is bright and, once again, nicely decorated. Breakfast was simple and nice, with a great cappuccino too (always a treat!).

The location was great - very quiet, safe neighbourhood. It took us only 3-5 minutes to drive to the old town. There was no charge for parking at the B &B. Parking around the centre was quite easy to find. I also think there is a nice walking path to the centre if you don't have a car.

The price of our stay here was significantly lower than accommodation inside the old walls. I suspect Casa Magnani is newer and much nicer than a lot of those places too.

We would be happy to stay here again and easily recommend it for a great stay in Verona.
