Giulietta e Romeo Hotel
Travel Blogs from Verona
Det er ikke vanskelig å skjønne hvorfor Verona blir omtalt som kjærlighetens by. Vi har nå vært her i 3 dager hvor vi har gått og gått. Nye gater dukker stadig opp, små skulte torg med di mest utrulige bygninger. Man kan ikke annet enn å bli forelsket i denne nydelige byen. Det er ikke vanskelig å se hvem som er turister og hvem som bor her. Det er …
I called too much shopping on day 5 of the trip and opted to start the morning trying to send a package back home. I scored a carton from foot locker the night before but couldn’t track down a packing tape and a marker no matter where I tried. In the end we improvised with bandage strapping tape and biro - think it will make it home?
We headed off to Verona, a 2 hour drive from Milano. The Garmin got us lost again so this time I trusted google maps to navigate us to ...
... the graffiti on the walls and love messages on padlocks and in the Letter's to Juliet postbox was beautiful - I has goosebumps! Anyhow we added a K&P to the wall, as did the girls (although I don't know what they wrote!?). We wandered through the town, busy with tourists and headed home just as the heavens opened. We stopped at nice little pizzeria for tea & got out the maps & camping books to see where to go ...
... but it is still based on legend. So in reality, that is no more Juliet's balcony than just another beautiful old building but it doesn't stop the millions of tourists who all want to believe in love. Having missed my train the day before I had to reschedule my walking tour/wine tasting for Thursday evening. I spent the entire day walking around the city seeing the masses of tourists being led around ...
... also be stretching it to suggest the recitative singing grabbed us ... but we were enjoying the whole spectacle. Until, right after 'The Grand March' and just as the drama was heating up, the sky opened and what started as light drizzle became persistent rain. Verona has been getting a lot of stormy weather, unseasonal and 'strano' as the locals are observing (see also my posts when we were in Lecce). You can put your ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Giulietta e Romeo Hotel Verona
Superb all rounder!
We found the Giulietta e Romeo easily walking with heavy luggage from the Arena bus stop. Reception was great with prompt, friendly and efficient service. Our room was spotlessly clean and very neat and modern. Beautiful wooden floor with a great comfortable bed and big bath. We had a balcony from which we could see the remaining outer side of the Arena! The location was sensational, right in the middle of town one street from shops, restaurants, Arena. Breakfast was lovely including espresso. Internet access in the lobby €1 every 10mins was handy. The hotel hired out push bikes for the day! Service during our stay was great. Wish we had longer to stay there!
Ideal place to stay
Great location right next to the arena. Good value at 100 euros, front desk staff were really friendly, they gave us a free upgrade on our room and helped us with train information for Venice.
Giulietto e Romeo
I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2005. The hotel is terrific. Location can't be beat. Check in was a breeze. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable I didn't feel cramped at all. It overlooked a nice courtyard. Breakfast was a very nice spread of fruit, cheese, meats, danish, juices, coffee, tea. WIthout a doubt I would stay here again.
Great Location -
Stayed here for one night. There was only one room left for all 5 of us to share, 2 adults and 3 kids!! They made us most welcome and we fitted in fine. The room was immaculate, breakfast and service great. A real bonus for only €16.00 was the overnight valet parking. Car was returned the next morning within 10 minutes of our request. Overall excellent and THE best location for the Opera and the main sites in Verona. Would stay again.
The hotel is tucked away in a tiny sidestreet off the Arena. If driving follow the instructions given on the hotel's web site carefully. The hotel is well sign-posted.
I stayed at this hotel with my son for a couple of nights in October. The hotel is reasonably priced and is very centrally situated being parallel to Via Mazzini, the main shopping street and within a few minutes walk of the Arena and Plaza Erbe. Our room was clean and pleasantly furnished with the added attraction of a Juliet balcony. The bathroom was a good size and spotlessly clean with a touch of luxury in the marble hand basin surround. The staff were extremely cheerful and helpful thus making our stay there a pleasure. The breakfast which is included in the rate was sufficient to set you up for the day. The hotel sent us an email thanking us for staying with them, this I felt was a nice touch.
Very convenient location in Verona but difficult to drive to, on a short, narrow street that wasn't on our map. Staff was helpful, breakfast was very good in a pleasant room. We had a nice room with a window on the street and a spacious bathroom. Since there's almost no traffic on the street, the room was very quiet. We'd go back.
Would go again!
Stayed with partner for several nights Easter 2002. Can confirm it's as good as guidebooks say. Very central but you can also walk to train/bus station for trips to Venice or Lake Garda in about 20 minutes. Our room didn't have a view - overlooked a central well - but very quiet and private so that was OK. Furnishings lovely, good breakfast with lots of choice. Easy access - lift from near entrance. Friendly, helpful staff.
