... 8217;s Balcony, Weaving through Verona, down what looked like “Local Drivers Only” streets we managed to find a perfect spot for the bus just a few streets away.
Entering the courtyard the walls of the entranceway are painted thick with professions of love, on the back wall padlocks coat the old gates and the walls of the giftshop are caked thick with chewing gum! I couldn’t convince Gab to lift Emerson’s chewy ban so she could join in, but no luck. ...
What a lovely place, oozing architecture and old Venetian style - it was lovely! We drove, it took around 40 mins and headed straight into the tourist area. Parking was limited & after asking (we didn't want another tow truck!) a helpful couple on their moped showed us where to park in the centre. We were right next to the street where it is said that Juliet's balcony is (although I gather the balcony was built in the ...
... lingual guides like kindergarten children. Not my idea of fun. I strongly considered bypassing my pre-booked excursion as I waited at the appointed area by the equestrian statue of Victoria Emmanuel and was pleasantly surprised when a very studious man advised me that he was my guide and that it would just be the two of us. Andreas holds a PhD in art history and lives and teaches in Verona. Although we went ...
... spin on climate change, but stuff is happening all over Europe. Any way we waited for a while under umbrellas and in our ponchos, but in the end, we had to leave just after half time. For now the Aida drama had to wait. But outside in Piazza Bra a different drama had been unfolding on the TV sets tuned to the World Cup. 'Mamma mia!' Germany was beating Brazil 7-0, just before full time. The world would definitely never be the same ...
We were very uncertain about the weather as we set off to pick up our yatch. The drive along the lake was very pretty and we arrived at the port around 10.00am and it was quite windy.... The staff told us that this was normal and in an hour it would be calm.... After a coffee we drove up the lake, even more pretty and watched some amazing high wind sailing by the dinghy and kite and windsurfers. Have ...

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.
