... you meet is smiling and happy. It is easy to travel around and the prices for everything are reasonable. "Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona where we set our scene ......" - I could spend a month in this delightful city and it is easy to see why Shakespeare used this setting for his most romantic theatre. (check out the photos) Stand on Juliette's Balcony = ...
So the ferry was a lot bigger than I'd expected! On the plus side you could barely tell that it was moving apart from the vibration of the engine, which seemed to be right underneath the cheap seats. An uneventful journey really, it seems most people pay to have a cabin and only myself and about 8 others decided to just go airline style. I understood why quite quickly ...
LAKE GARDA, JUNE 10
Today we left Genoa. Dennis had predicted an easy departure unlike our arrival. Well, so much for Dennis' predictions. Traffic was awful and was backed up for miles. We are not certain of the cause but eventually it cleared out and then we got on the wrong road and had to make a U-turn. We are getting good at U-turns. ...
... the most beautiful views. We passed Juliette's tomb. We also saw dozens of beautiful spots on the bus. We then missed the hop on so we walked back to our hotel stopping for coffee and buying me a pair of shoes on the way. Verona is a great city. The weather is lovely and warm although easy to get burnt. For dinner we had gnocchi at a resturant called ippotamus near the arena. It was ...
We travelled from Torbiole to Como (Garlate) down the West side of Garda - a much more scenic route) I'm writing this quickly because I don't know when the Internet here will go down again.

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.
