    Bike sharing stall near Tribunale parking
    2 more images

    It started on March, 10th 2012. A brand new bike sharing service, with 20 stations alla round the canter and surrounding areas.

    The first 30 minutes (more than enough to reach another docking station) are free, but you have to sign in for a small daily amount.

    A credit card is necessary as a warranty

    See info on the site (in italian, english and german). Daily subscriptions available for tourists

    A wap site to check real-time the bikes and stall available should be underway soon at wap.bikeverona.it

    typical walking trail in Verona, oops, that's BC.

    There is only one way to enjoy the travel between sights in Verona, and that is on foot.

    There don't appear to be as many little kiosks along the sides of the cobblestoned roads as in other parts of Italy we have visited (except Padova, of course). This makes for easy walking, without being forced to detour around the bottlenecks caused by these obstructions.

    The streets are wider, and there are many areas of open space, which are not overshadowed by confining buildings which block the warmth of the sun. Walking along the river is great, because most areas have two 'lanes' for pedestrian traffic. It makes for an easy, level stroll, with many photo ops along the way.

    Because there are so many bridges, you can vary your walk to allow new sights each time.

    So, put your most comfy walking shoes on, buy a small bottle of water from the nearest bar, slip it in your day pack, grab your camera, your hat, and wander out onto the street, find a good easy pace, and slip it into 'cruise'.

    Lago di Garda map

    Lago di Garda is only about 20 km far from the town of Verona. To get there you can use the loco bus lines, very frequent and quick. If traveling by own car just follow the brown coloured marks everywhere inside the town, which leads you to the lake. Other option is by highway A4 in direction of Milano(uscita Peschiera or Sommacampagna).

    Especially in the old section of town. It's advisable to pick up a street map at your hotel. Even with a map some of the streets are not marked too well. The local residents are extremely friendly & helpful, even not understanding each others language.

    Take a walk!

    a passage

    As for me, the best way to see Verona is on foot. In this way one can explore even its most hidden places and get to know the lovely place better.
