... The first ride I went on was the Colorado Rapids. Mum got sopping wet and so did I. Next I went on this ride where you went up a ramp and then you turned upside-down! I was hanging out of my seat, but I had this harness on which kept me from falling and cracking my head open. It was scary at first then I got used to it. The next ride we went on was a proper ...
Had a quiet day today. We went for another walk into Peschiera.. Then we went and sat in the sun by the lake. Then after lunch we went and sat by the pool...oh god it's exhausting!! Last day though, tomorrow we start the journey towards home. ...
Today we went for yet another boat trip, this time on Lake Garda; we went from Peschiera to Garda..lovely smooth trip to Garda. The market was there (just like ours at home) so we had a wonder round. Then we went to have some lunch; deep fried squid, fish, prawns and we think, octopus...chips and salad - it was delicious! (we had seen someone else eating it in Viareggio and had wanted to try it then) after that we had yet ...
So we are now staying at Camping Cappuccini which is lovely, we have a huge pitch, access to the beach (through a locked gate so site seems a very secure) a bar which has free wi-fi. This site does cost 4 euros a night more, but is so much nicer than Bella Italia. I have to say that Bella Italia is probably a great site for families with young ...
... see, we had no idea! There's an arena (Arena Verona), that dates back to AD 30, They still have concerts there, and actually had one the night we stayed.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Verona
Mon mari et moi avons séjourné une nuit en janvier 2005 et nous avons détesté. L'hôtel en lui-même est assez agréable, mais très impersonnel et le réceptionniste est la personne la plus horrible et désagréable que nous ayons rencontrée au cours de nos séjours dans le monde entier. En plus, la chambre était froide et on nous a fait payer un supplément en quittant l'hôtel. Le seul bon moment était le petit déjeuner qui était vraiment délicieux. Malheureusement, nous sommes partis avec une très mauvaise impression.
Stayed at the Grand Hotel Verona over Christmas, modern clean hotel very very close to the Arena, the rooms were not huge but had all the amenties needed and were clean. One complaint is that you can here your neighbours quite easily. Breakfast was nice, the staff were very friendly and obliging. Overall a nice comfortable hotel. I would stay there again.
Very Nice Hotel
My wife and I stayed at the Grand Hotel for two nights in May 2004. This is a small, well maintained hotel with a very comfortable atmosphere. We found the hotel personnel to be delightfully friendly and helpful: the doorman, the desk clerks, the breakfast servers and the maids. The desk clerks were glad to provide information about and driving directions to Verona area sights - we chose to visit Lake Garda. The hotel is a convenient 5 to 10 minute walk from the Piazza Bra. We found the hotel easily and appreciated its proximity to a parking garage that was only 20 to 30 meters away. We had a non-smoking room that looked out on the hotel's garden, a place of tranquilty in the city center. We enjoyed a nice buffet breakfast each day.
We stayed here in September 2003. It was the nicest hotel we stayed in on our 2 week holiday in various places in italy.Excellent rooms very spacious, good location just outside the city walls and walking distance to the train station.The breakfast was very good with lots of choice.Reasonably priced for Italy
Stayed here for two nights. Verona was the third city we were visiting as part of our honeymoon and chosen as an opportunity to catch the opera. Furthermore it was my wife's birthday and the hotel presented her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. A nice touch and very quickly arranged as they only got this information from her passport. The hotel is located approximately 10 minutes walk from the train station and the same from the arena(where opera is held). Hotel has a lovely courtyard and garden where some vistors sunned themselves. Room was a good size and breakfast substantial. Plan to return for another visit to the opera (magical) and will without hesitation stay in the Grand Hotel.
