Destination Essentials

Romeo and Juliet’s city is a delight in every season. But if you desire pleasant weather teamed with smaller crowds, fall is the perfect time to visit Verona. It graces you with comfortable temperatures, lower tourist numbers and the opportunity to partake in grape harvesting actions due to its proximity to the Valpolicella region.

For those who love the great outdoors, summer offers plenty of opportunities for bike tours and trips to the Dolomiťs. Conversely, winter in Verona is adorned with ski resorts and charming Christmas markets, turning the city into a cosy snowy retreat. However, if you are in for sightseeing, spring brings the Festival of Beauty in Art and Culture, combining perfect weather with mesmerising events. In Verona, each season boasts its unique appeal, promising a memorable Italian holiday.
