Verona is a town rich in art, history and poetry, with its sunny streets it captures the curious and most romantic tourists.

1. What to see in Verona

Mandatory steps are obviously the ones to the historic arena and the Romeo and Juliet house, but not just that! Piazza delle Erbe is a relaxing destination by ancient undeniable charm, even the Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore is a destination that you can't miss: a splendid example of Romanesque of North Italy. Three churches in one with a magnificent crypt. Certainly it worth a visit being outside the center and in a quiet area with little traffic.

2. Villa Pellegrini and surroundings

In the city center we suggest you, because of particular historical interest, the garden of Castel San Pietro, the Bastions of the Gardens of Spain Mura, Giusti Gardens, and the arsenal gardens. On the outskirts there is the park of Villa Pellegrini Marioni Pullè to Chievo, that of Villa Bernini Buri, the north and south Adige parks. The hills in the north of the city are an excellent natural and scenic value, as well as the system of the small canyon formed by water erosion called vaj: Vajo Borago Vajo Galina, Vajo Mezzane.

3. Flavors and local food

The cuisine of Verona and its province is rich in dishes with Vialone rice IGP, to be enjoyed in good and tasty risottos, for example with the traditional red radicchio DOP. We can't forget that Verona and its territory are areas among the largest producers of high quality wine. Typical dishes of the Veronese cuisine are bollito with pearà, beef accompanied by a sauce made with breadcrumbs, cheese, marrow, broth and black pepper. The gnochhi, a delicious paste made with potatoes, white flour and eggs, served with tomato sauce or with sugar and cinnamon. Then there is the polenta, the typical food of the poor peasants of the Po Valley, which is prepared with corn meal cooked in salted water.
