Hi Ruth!

Shuttle bus to the Porta Nuova train station: frequent, fast and cheap.
( http://www.atv.verona.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/EN/IDPagina/90 )

From there you can walk ( 20-30 minutes) or take a city bus: line 11, 12, 13 all goes from the station to Piazza Bra (where the Arena is)... just take care to take them in the right direction!

Ciao
Francesco

when you go outside the airport, go to your right and you will see the busses. They run every 15 minutes or so. you can pay the driver directly - they will store your luggage underneath - large coach bus. There is also a window inside the airport where you can purchase your ticket.

Villafranca airport is about 30 minutes from Verona. They will take you if i remember correctly, to the bus station, and then you have to transfer to the bus that will take you to piazza bra. You may have to go to the tabacchi shop inside the station to get a ticket - when get on the bus you look for the machine to validate your ticket.

Other option would be to take a taxi - not sure what the fare is.

Travel Tips for Verona

Internet

by Marpessa

Internet Train is a cheap place to use the internet, they have 3 stores in Verona. Two on Via Roma (17 - has 20 PCs and 28a - has 4 PCs), and one on Via San Paolo 8a (12 PCs).

I used the one on Via Roma (17). The only problem is that even though they have many computers here, it can be busy and sometimes you will have to wait.

The good thing with this chain of internet stores is that you buy your time and it goes on a card (that you insert into a slot next to the computer), and any unused time remains on your card, which you can top-up at any store.

Also, depending on the store, it may also have access to: scanners, a fax machine or international phone cards.

Check out the site below for more details (The site is in Italian, English and Japanese).

Verona - old town streets

by Martin_S.

If you enter the old parts of Verona you will find many small and narrow streets, like the one you can see here. Even on such a small street they have managed to "fit" a restaurant. These are beautiful places to sit for a drink or a meal and just watch the world go by.

The Venetian influence

by iandsmith

Following the Scaligeris, the Venetians held sway over Verona (it was the second largest town in their region) and their influence can be seen today by the white column just to the right of centre. The pedestal holds a lion, the symbol of the Venetian city state.
Column of Lion of St. Mark is also known as San Marco Column (Colonna di San Marco). It was designed by Michele Leoni and was erected in 1523. It is located at the northern end of Piazza delle Erbe just opposite Palazzo Maffei. The column was scupltured in Veronese white marble and is a bit of a standout when viewed from the opposite end of Piazza delle Erbe.
The lion on top of the column is not an original one which was brought down in the late 18th century. The current lion was replaced on the top of the column in the mid 19th century Directly behind it is the Palazzo Maffei (1668), a delightful baroque palace connected to the much earlier (1370) Torre del Gardello that was built by Cansignorio della Scala.
The facade of the palace has Baroque style of architecture. It was constructed for Marcantonio Maffei (1626 - 1630) and was completed in 1668. It's real eye candy for those who enjoy such things.
Atop the roof of Palazzo Maffei you will note six magnificent statues; they are of Hercules, Jupiter, Venus, Mercury, Apollo and Minerva. Understandly, this building, along with the surrounding buildings are among the most expensive properties in Verona. Several shops are located at the ground floor of the palace.
The Piazza Erbe (from the Latin for herb) is undoubtedly one of Italy's finest, even viewed in the drizzling rain that accompanied me everywhere.

Piazza delle Erbe - Berlina

by croisbeauty

Next to the Fountain of Madonna di Verona stands a small shrine-chaped construction once used during the ceremonies of investiture, when citizens of Verona were elected for public duties. It is coloqvialy known as the Berlina.
The new look of "Toloneo" (as the space of the square is called), after the green market was removed, is very attractive now. What was hidden once in between the ugly stands, now is brought to the light.

The first performance of the...

by AndreasK

The first performance of the Opera Festival dates back to 1913 when Giuseppe Verdi's Aida was performed, and still today, it's in Verdi's Aida that the Arena show it's impressive theatrical power, made of monumental scenes, moving masses and light effects. Since then the Opera Festival has had, and continues to have, some of the best artist in the world such as: Maria Callas, Placido Domingo, José Carreras, Luciano Pavarotti, Riccardo Muti... The picture shows a performance of Giacomo Puccini‘s Tosca.
