Via Muro Padri, 8, Verona, Italy
A truly relaxing stay
The man running the place knows what people like, he has made it a modern, quiet b n b. Its got an easy location from the bus stop and is located in the centre of town.
Incrediably clean bathrooms and offers breakfast and kitchen facilities.
Its a small place with around 4 rooms.
There are books on offer in different languages for you to read so you can find out what there is to do around Verona, there is also a tv and lounge room to read a selection of magazines. During my time here, I found the owner to leave the building during most of the day and night, which I liked because it really feels like your home then.
Directions: By car: Milan-Venice motorway, exit Verona Sud
By train: from the Verona Porta Nuova's Station take a bus for Giusti Gardens

opinion on B&B and transportation
I am considering accomodations Domus Nova by Piazza Erbe? Is this close to the train station and would it be recommended? It is fairly expensive. Also is there anywhere to swim in Verona? Making a compromise...my husband does not want to drive this trip and City accomodations do not have pools for the most part. Would like to stay outside of the city but missed the opera last time and do not know how to hire a car for this. Any recommendations for villas, hotels out of city with pools and car hire or near public transport? I want something that does not seem a generic hotel. I enjoy train and bus or car with driver? Last question...typical american...I would like to go to a cooking class at someone's house...It looks like so much fun.
Thank you and kindest regards...
Re: opinion on B&B and transportation
Piazza Erbe is the heart of the ancient Roman town... in fact the forum was there (read my tip if you like) and, to visit the town, that is one of the most desirable positions.
No, the station is not close (i would not advice to walk there with baggages) but it's a mere 5 minutes by taxi.
I guess the public swimming pool (a couple of KMS from there) it's not what your husband is looking for.
If not for the pool (strange, but they seem not to have it.... but eventually ask) the ideal place you describe may be Villa Giona in Valpolicella (http://www.villagiona.it/index.cfm/hurl/contenuto=2/home.html ).... if price doesn't matter.
It is a fantastic place, and has cooking classes.
Or, if a pool is a must, take a look here: http://www.hotelvilladelquar.it/
Both are out of town, but i'm sure they can arrange a private car for the opera night.
Both are luxury hotels.. Of course there are cheaper places...
Let me know
Travel Tips for Verona
Verona was already in the...
Verona was already in the Roman period a very important city.
It lies in the vally of Adige, the connection between Italy and the countries north from the alps.
In the first century Verona official became a Roman city.
You can see many proves of it for example the arena and the city gate.
Of all the cities I have cycled in recently, Verona comes the closest to having adequate numbers of state-of-the-art bicycle stands in places where they are most needed.
Most of these seem to have been installed quite recently, and unlike many other cities the Verona City Council consulted the local bicycle club before ordering, so the new stands are very practical and enable you to lock your bike easily without damaging the front wheel.
Most of the museums take you around the museum is one direction - so you have to go through all the rooms of exhibits to get out. Perhaps that should be a tourist trap! Now I'm not a big art fan but i did notice something about some of the paintings I saw in the fresco museum (which you see before can enter the cloister where Juliet's grave is - see off the beaten path tips for more on that). Well the paintings may be religious but they have local scenes in the background. For example the picture is of the last supper but in the background through the window is Lake Garda!
Many people come to Verona for the opera season in summer (when it is essential to have advance bookings of accommodation!)
Not only the Opera itself holds performances but it also moves out to the old Roman Arena. This means that already in May, work starts inside the Arena to build a stage and set. A little disappointing if you've come especially for the Arena - then you'd better travel here at other times of the year. For me, it was fun to try to figure out what the set would look like 2005 with a huge "ball" on the stage...
The monument to Paolo Veronese (1528-1588) is situated in a small park on the left bank of the River Adige, where Rigaste Redentore meets Lungadige Re Teodorico.
Paolo Veronese is painter who, along with Titian and Tintoretto, was one of the foremost artists in the 16th century Venice. He was known for his innovative distinctive style, from allegorical paintings, portraits to mythological scenes. His great works can be seen in Doge's Palace and churches San Giorgio and San Sebastiano.
