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 ...
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 ...
... several authentic restaurants away from the main tourist areas. I had really wanted to try the squid in black ink but after watching a very beautiful and sophisticated woman smile at me with black teeth after taking a bite, I chickened out. The horse meat stew also gave me the willies but I did try go for the calves liver - which was excellent. A few more Procesco spritzes and it's off the Venice in the ...
... and an incredible use of the wider spaces of the Arena (including beyond the stage and into the Arena seats) throughout the performance. During the regular intervals, ragazzi roamed our cheap seats plying the punters with 'birra, vini bianchi and vini rossi'. The Romans know how to do stuff. All this was great. Now we would be exaggerating if we told you that we had much of a clue about what was happening for most of the time, and ...
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 ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsVerona Hotel
Hotel Verona in well located for anyone taking a fly-drive holiday. The Hotel has its own parking which may or not be free depending on who you book through. It is located midway along Corso Porta Nuova, a five minute walk from the Arena/ Piazza Bra'. The Hotel was extended a few years ago, and thus you have the possibility of a classic room or modern room. You should specify at booking if you have a preferenceon this. Rooms are clean & tidy, with free Wifi. the breakfast is typical for the region, with self service buffet. The only drawback is the size of the breakfast area, which means some guests must wait at the main desk, and wait to be called when a table is available.

Historical Traveler Reviews Verona Hotel
Brilliant, Super, Wonderful!
Arrived in Verona and found hotel easily. Hotel situated 3 mins walk from Arena, perfectly located. Staff professional, but very friendly and helpful. Hotel very modern and chic, cool and quiet. The welcome bowl of fruit in the room was a lovely touch. A wonderful spot - excellent value! Spent 3 weeks touring Italy, Switzerland and France - Hotel Verona was our best find!
Verona Short stay Hotel Verona and Trento
Travelled cheaply to Verona via Brescia Airport. One hour by Ryanair bus to Verona. Buy a return ticket for 16 Euros in airport. Had booked Hotel Verona for £80. Delighted with value for money. Clean fresh modern. Fresh bowl of fruit in bedroom.Only minutes away from Arena. Could have walked from station - 15 minutes but took taxi. Around £5. Returned a week later. As price of hotels had gone up booked Hotel Trento (2 star). Just under £80.Not impressed. Very basic.The beds were clean. It had very noisy air conditioning but at least it drowned out any street noise. Just across road from Hotel Verona Towels should have been binned 10 years ago. Threadbare was the understatement. The shower was an open shower in the bathroom. Breakfast was set out on the tables in reception by 10 pm. Rolls, very soft butter, spreads, juice and coffee were added next morning. Couldn't get coffee or drinks from bar at 5pm. Will either return a week earlier or spend on 3 star. No comparison.
