All in all this was one of the most challenging and important assignment for the fledgling, but pacesetting Ernesto Tours (ET).
It went a bit like this.
John and Sue fly to Verona from Belfast and stay one night at 37 Stradone Porta Palio (the 'mini Jesus')

... what a dirty ****** sewer of a city. The canals and waterways, however ancient, have the feel of some cheap ill-conceived tourist attraction. The gondolas look like they're all piloted by local prison inmates on a day release program, and the water busses, which seem to be the primary mode of transport, are slow, uncomfortable, hot and look like they were probably used to transport Italian troops during the First World War. While I'm talking ...
seen – even better than Les Miserables in London. The singing was beautiful –
especially Carmen. The way they staged the story was exciting with something
happening all the time. It certainly was unforgettable. The dancing (Spanish) was also excellent. Didn’t get home to bed until 2 am – bit late for Craig and Lina but we enjoyed
every minute. Some days you never forget – this is one of them.
... our hotel was located. The hotel was gorgeous and situated steps from St. Mark's Square! Venice is absolutely magical, especially at night. While we were strolling we kept feeling like we were in a fantasy land. Now we know why Disney used Venice as his inspiration for DisneyWorld!! We took a ...
... Leading out of the studiolo is a small, enclosed "secret" garden: a charming outdoors extension of Isabella's personal space. A bit of fresh air and greenery is good for the soul. For your homework, design your own ex-studiolo horticultural enclosure.
And so that was the ducal palace in Mantua. It was an artistic joie de vivre, a time machine back to the world of the Renaissance court; a succession of one masterwork after the other.

Historical Traveler Reviews Accademia Hotel Verona
This hotel is absolutely lovely. It is centrally located and although located in the middle of town, the rooms are very quiet at all times. The lobby is lovely, allowing for one to have a drink and read the several international newpapers while resting up for the opera that evening, for example. The staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend the hotel as well as the elegant city of Verona.
Great, except for the noise of the refurbishment on the 2nd floor
Spent one night here in January 2005. First impression of the hotel was great. Central location, room size was massive in European standard, bathroom was clean and large. Rates were very reasonable. We arrived at 10am and was given a room straight away. Refurbishment was being carried out upstairs which we did not pay any attention to as it was during the day and hotels do normally carry out work during their quiet seasons. However the noise continued until well after 10pm. We called the reception at that stage and was told no work was being carried out in the hotel, not only not at that hour, but not at all. Which was a bit strange as everyone could see that one floor of the hotel was boarded up with walls being knocked down, floors taken up. And strangely still, the noise stopped after our phone call. All in all, I would still recommend this hotel-surely, the work would have finished by now. But one advice: do not order the coffee at breakfast, it was one of the worst cup of coffee I had in the 10 days we spent in Italy.
Really enjoyed a weekend in Verona and this hotel was a big part of that.
Superb location for everything central. Very friendly staff and fine quiet room Large bathroom with huge shower area if no bath, looked like one might have been there in a past life!
Breakfast very Italian with an amazing selection of those dried cakes and biscuits that Italians seem to love.
If driving make sure you know exactly how you are going to get to the hotel. Especially at night, its not as simple as the hotel website might suggest. Hotel park car for you useful pull in just in front.
Best deal in Verona
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in September. I totally agree with the other reviews that the hotel is a real bargain for the comfort of the rooms and the loacation. Wish to echo the remark that the hotel restaurant is one of the best in Verona. Verona is a lovely quaint city and well worth a visit.
Good central Hotel
The Hotel Accademia provided us with a comfortable two nights in September 2004. It has all the facilities you expect from this grade of hotel. We stayed in a very quiet room, sometimes difficult to find in Italian cities. Very central, it is in a pedestrian area - though taxis can reach the front door. Staff efficient and pleasant.
Great - We will go again
My partner and I stayed for 3 days in March 2004. The hotel was very clean, quite, comfortable and ideally located. The room, a standard king, was very clean, plenty of room for two and tastefully decorated.
All the staff we encountered seemed friendly and took the time to talk with us. While at the time of our visit the hotels adjoining resturant was closed, the breakfast was good. Due to the hotels locations lots of places to see, shop and eat are close by, we especially enjoyed the Gruppa resturant which was a very traditional Italian venue located nearby on dark side street. Vegetarians try the "Pumpkin Ravioli" a Verona special. We will go again
I will stay again
I have stayed in this hotel 3 times and will keep coming back. It is not cheap, especially in the summer when the opera is on. It is in such a good place however, and staff are superb. I had a single room which was quite small but the other facilities and the ambience made up for that. The air conditing worked well. Met some women who visited us because they were staying in a much more expensive hotel that didn't have decent air conditioning. Periodically there was free champagne in the afternoon in the lounge. The public areas are nice. Highly recommeded
We went to Verona on a short honeymoon and asked our travel agent to book any four-star hotel. We stayed in the Hotel Accademia, our first good move. The hotel is central to everything including the wonderful shops. It is, though, surprisingly quiet and tranquil with curteous and helpful staff and comfy sofas and tables dotted here and there. The bedrooms are mostly large and well furnished, and the buffet breakfast sets you up for the day.
We had our best meal in Verona in the hotel restaurant - 37 euros for the set menu, and we ate more than is decent or necessary.
