12 Instagrammable places in Verona
Italy very popular among tourists and locals. Perhaps in no small part because some of the essential activities you can do in Verona are concentrated around one of Shakespeare's most famous works - Romeo and Juliet. Nevertheless, even without Romeo and Juliet, Verona is a real pearl of Italy. Wherever your eyes fall, there is so much history, and the architecture here is so stunning that this city can rightly be called a paradise for your Instagram! The fourth most visited city in Italy is still not as full of tourists as Rome, Milan or Florence. In a way, a visit can leave you feeling as if you have just set foot on the set of some old Italian Hollywood movies. It sounds like a dream to any Instagram aesthetic, doesn't it? So how do you get to this fabulous city in Italy? Take, for example, the route Milan-Verona. The two main options are the train and bus. The first one has many advantages - from the price and frequency of departures to the speed of movement. The second, perhaps, for those who do not like trains at all. Milan and Verona are connected by the railway company Trenord, which is responsible for regional passenger trains in Lombardy. Trenord trains are quite comfortable and convenient, and they run almost every hour from early morning till midnight. On the way about 2 hours, tickets cost 12-13 EUR. Verona can also be reached with a breeze home high-speed trains Frecciarossa and Frecciabianco Italian national railway operator Trenitalia. On the way, about 1 hour 20 minutes, tickets to the second class - 22-24 EUR, the first-class trip will cost 30-34 EUR.  Anyway, I can continue and continue to praise the virtues of Verona and why it is such a fantastic city...). Instead, it is much more interesting to finally find out where are the best Instagrammable places of Verona that you can find in the city and what you need to visit while you are there! So, here is what to see in Verona? and where to take Instagrammable places in Verona!

1. Arena di Verona

arena di verona Of course, the Arena is one of the best places to go in Verona. It is a stunning historical place, and it attracts the attention of one of the busiest squares in the city, so you are unlikely to miss it. Visiting this ancient Roman amphitheater is one of the best things to do in Verona because it is much more than just a static historical attraction. It is a concert venue, and it is one of the places worth visiting by visiting a show here. You will need to act quickly, tickets for many shows can be sold in minutes, so it is probably worth booking them in advance. Do not worry; even if you cannot book an evening here, you can still visit the Arena during the day. I would advise you to do both. Visit during the day, so you can take a photo and enjoy the atmosphere at your own pace, and then visit the show here at night, so you can fully experience the amphitheater, in some way, as it was many centuries ago.

2. Cathedral of Verona

cathderal of verona This impressive cathedral is another must-see when you are in town. Hidden in a relatively quiet (at least quiet compared to the main squares) place, inside a relatively "simple" facade of the cathedral, is the most intricately designed architectural masterpiece in the city. Inside the cathedral sometimes pass some work, so you can not explore it everywhere, but the pieces you could explore would be magnificent even then. Italian people know precisely how to build their churches!

3. Piazza Bra

piazza bra Remember that the Arena is one of the busiest squares in the city? Piazza Bra is one of Verona's best squares for hungry travelers, which, let's face it - we are all (it's always only a matter of time before our thoughts turn to food). Don't forget our list "Where to make most liked Instagram photos in Verona," the architecture is beautiful, but a photo of a pizza on the background of an Instagrammable square will gather no fewer likes. There are many restaurants to choose from - if you want to be right in the square, the Ristorante Caffe Vittorio Emanuele is a pretty good place to eat, but if you prefer a less busy area, you can go to one of the alleys (literally across the street near the square) - you will find Cangrande Ristorante & Enoteca and Ristorante Pizzeria Nastro Azzurro, both of which are amazing (the last two are very good, so I would probably go to one of these two before deciding on one of the restaurants in the square). Don't deny yourself the pleasure of turning off the beaten tourist route, walk around these corners without rushing, breathe in the charm, and take a couple of other photos of Verona.

4. Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore

basilica of san zeno This place is a bit farther than others (actually it's not that far - "farther" in Verona means it's like a 15-minute walk compared to the neighborhood), but it's one of the best places to go in Verona for Romeo and Juliet enthusiasts, as the crypt here is the place where Romeo and Juliet got married in a book.  Again, it is an extraordinary place to visit in itself and perhaps one of Verona's most impressive churches (which says a lot, since Verona is undoubtedly not without impressive enough churches to visit).

5. Torre dei Lamberti

torre dei lamberti Rising above the Piazza Delle Erbe, this tower is one of the Instagrammable places for your project "best places in Verona," where you can enjoy incredible views of Verona (after all, no wonder, because it is a tower). It occupies such a brilliant position overlooking the town and is a great place to visit to get a proper idea of how vast (and how relatively flat) the city is. Now you can either climb the numerous stairs leading to the tower or take the elevator directly upstairs. Wishing to make the most of the time you spend in the city (and not too eager to climb a few staircases), I would choose an elevator that costs almost nothing and will get you to your travel destination in seconds.

6. Piazza Delle Erbe

Downstairs from Torre dei Lamberti is Piazza Delle Erbe, another large square in the city where you can eat, drink and watch the people in general. If you're here on the right day, there's also a market with sales that are just waiting for you to buy something. Not far from here (about 2 minutes walk), on the way to the next place below (Casa di Giuletta) is Trattoria al Pompiere, a fantastic place for delicious local dishes. This place is so appreciated by the locals (and by the visitors who are dedicated to this "secret") that you will probably find that it is always busy and you will need to reserve a table in advance to eat here. It is worth it, so don't forget to reserve a table in this place when you are in town (perhaps even in advance).

7. Casa di Juliet

casa di juliet Here he is, the winner of the "Instagrammable places of Verona" nomination; Casa di Julietta is Julietta's House (literally translated), where Julietta calls her beloved. I am sure your Instagram subscribers will be happy to see numerous Instagram photos from this beautiful place! Surprisingly but (especially considering how tragically their story ends), this place is a massive shrine for lovers visiting the city in Italy, who see it as one of the most romantic Instagrammable places to visit. Here on the walls, you will find many inscriptions of lovers and even a Juliet statue, whose bust has changed color from so many people who continuously rub it for good luck. You can visit the yard outside for free, but you must pay for it if you want to go out on the balcony. Of course, you want to go out on the balcony, because otherwise your reporting from this city will not be completed! Who knows, perhaps lonely travelers are fortunate, and love will catch up with you in this magical place of Verona. There is also a museum (which shows the architecture here and films that were staged here, such as the famous romantic comedy "Letters to Juliet"), so your money is not just spent to get to this balcony, but also on new knowledge.

8. Castelvecchio

castelvecchio Right in the city is the castle - Castelvecchio, a majestic structure that dates back to the 14th century and is best in Verona. It is probably one of the most significant places here in terms of vast space to explore (right up there with the Arena), and it is worth taking a decent amount of time to get to know it accurately. It is worth buying an audio guide here, as you probably need some context to appreciate the space entirely.

9. Ponte di Castelvecchio

ponte-de-castelvecchio Next to the castle is the beautiful Ponte di Castelvecchio Bridge, built by the ruling Della Scaligeri family (Scaligeri a.k.a. Scaligers), to escape from an attack in the event of the collapse of their empire - which of course, happened in the end. It is a great place to visit the bridge when you are in Castelvecchio, so do not forget to do it!

10. Arco dei Gavi

arco dei gavi Right next door to Castelvecchio is the Arc de Gavi, an ancient arch built by the noble family Gavia, which was once the gateway to the city. The arch was not really near Castelvecchio, and was moved there in later years (much, much later) and is quite impressive right by the river.

11. Piazzale Castel San Pietro

verona landscape Piazzale Castel San Pietro is one of Verona's most loved and quite easily accessible attractions, thanks to its beautiful views of the city. The best time to get up here is around sunset, where an already impressive view of Verona becomes even more attractive, as many shades of orange change and envelop the town while the sun sinks over the horizon at the same time.  Remember that Verona is relatively "flat"? It is clear that this is one of the exceptions, as there is also a variant of a small hike that requires physical effort but do not worry, it is not stressful at all, and it is straightforward to scale. It's worth going here for a picnic (maybe even taking a bottle of wine for the most liked Instagram photos) to watch the sunset over a pretty Instagrammable city (remember to take all your garbage with you for proper disposal, of course).

12. Palace of Giusti and Giardino Giusti

Suppose you want to take a walk in a pretty Instagrammable garden. In that case, Giardino Giusti is the place to go, as it is not only one of the best examples of Italian gardens in the whole world, but also right next to the palace, which creates the perfect day in the sun in Verona. There is a certain fee to be paid to get inside, so leave some time to this garden to enjoy all this beauty slowly and leisurely. (*If you want your Instagram photos of Verona to not have to remove tourists from the background, a visit early is probably a good idea).

Bonus Instagrammable places

Loggia del Consiglio: Hyde to the question: "Where to take most liked Instagram photos in Verona?" continues. It's more of a place to drop in for a while than to plan a whole day, as there's not much to do, but it's worth looking outside. However, it is a beautiful place, and it is located next to Place Delle Herbet and Torre de. Piazza Signori: This leads me to my next place, Piazza Signori. This square is next to Piazza Delle Erbe and Torre dei Lamberti and is where the Loggia del Consiglio is located. I would just put them together as the same. Still, the square is much larger than just the Loggia del Consiglio. The Loggia del Consiglio is essential enough (it goes back many centuries and is a critical place in Verona) that it was worthy of having its separate reference.  piazza dante verona Scaliger's Tombs: This is another "fast" place in the city, as there is not much to do except to look at the tombs. Remember I said that the Scaligers used to be the ruling family here? These tombs were built by Della Scala's family (right next to Santa Maria Antica) and are still considered one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in the city and Italy in general. Romano Theater: The Roman theatre (very different from the amphitheater - a fact that tends to confuse several visitors to the city) is another one of those quite elevated above the town. It is located near the Castle of San Pietro and is one of the best places in the city when you want to better understand the town's history. Like the amphitheater, this theatre is still used for some performances, except for smaller ones due to its relatively small size. Sant'Anastasia: It turned out to be one of the most impressive churches in the city and probably one of Verona's best (and believe me, there are many beautiful churches here), thanks to a rather exciting and intricate design. This is one of those places in the city that cause the "wow" effect as soon as you go inside! It is such a fantastic place in the town and worth seeing when you are in the beauty that is Verona.

What can I bring from Verona besides impressions?

church in verona Of course, you can buy in Verona statuettes of Juliet or candy "Juliet's Kiss" or other popular souvenirs related to the English writer... Or you can also remember that Verona, the second-largest city in the province of Venetto - the largest and most famous wine region of Italy. Real travelers, not tourists from Verona, should bring just wine so that months later, you can plunge into this fantastic atmosphere again thanks to the sweet taste of this sunny drink. If you do find yourself in Verona, do not spare your legs because the city is worth it. Go to a place where tourists do not go. There is a real Verona, and eat and see what to eat. In any case, to come to Italy and not see Verona will be an actual loss of beauty! Apply for an Italy visa today and enjoy beautiful Verona ASAP!
