Internet Train: Internet points
Internet Train is a chain of internet points in major Italian cities. This one at Via Roma 17 in Verona is very pleasant (and air-conditioned) and has high speed connections. The first time you use there service you have to show your passport (this is because of a new Italian anti-terrorism law), and then you get a card which you can use at their shops all over Italy.
Prices for just a one-off internet connection are quite high (like 4 Euros an hour, which is four times the going rate in Germany), but it gets cheaper if you pre-pay some time on your card and then go on using it all over the country.
Second photo: Here's another internet point called Internet etc. at Via 4 Spade 3/B, just off Via Mazzini. Tel. 045 8000222, www.internetetc.it.
Third photo: Inside Internet etc.
Fourth photo: Here's another internet point on Vicolo Ghiaia, not far from Piazza Bra. This one is the most primitive of the three I have tried, but has similar prices, so there is no particular reason to go here.

Clothes & shoes: Shopping for us normal folks
At my hotel I asked where normal people in Verona go shopping for clothes, i.e. people who don't want to spend a fortune for the latest fashions on the Via Mazzini.
One of the stores they suggested was Oviesse on the Via Roma, which did in fact have exactly what I was looking for, and at a lower price than I would have paid in Germany.
Second photo: Oviesse with the Teatro Filarmonico on the left.

Clothes & shoes: Via Giuseppe Mazzini
The Via Mazzini forms a direct connection between the Piazza Brà and the Piazza delle Erbe. It is not only the largest pedestrian area of Verona, but is also one of the busiest streets of the city and Verona’s shop window. Row upon row of shops line the road, and large crowds of tourists amble from window to window. All major Italian fashion brands are represented here and offer their goods. Anyone who is looking for the latest fashion in clothes, shoes and accessories and has a corresponding budget will certainly find what he or she is looking for. If you’re staying in Verona during the time of the Saldi (sales), you will have the chance to find a bargain or two for less money.Related to:

the most in the city center: Shops open till 11pm once a month
It started last year for 3 thursdays in september, and was repeated this year. Shops open till 11pm in center on september thursdays. Now, for 2005/2006 winter, they decided to do it again every 2nd thursday of the month.
This really changes the face and the feel of the town. Music and shows are held around the streets, rivers of people come to the center to eat, shop or simply to see this extra life in the city veins.
It is really beautiful to see the street crowded till midnight. If you can, plan a visit... and beware a little problem can arise with parking.

fnac: My husband liked this shop ...
... better than anything else in Verona.
He made many pilgrimages to it and came away with some happy purchases.
He particularly like the agonising - oh great but do I really want it no I don't yes I do - I might just go away and think about it - moments.
The dvds had him in delicious torments.
But because we needed books to read and because their English section was quite extensive and because they had a rack of books in that lovely old fashioned Penguin cover reduced to 10 euro - that is where we spent the money. And happy to, too.
Had a sweet moment as we queued at the cassa desk. They have tvs up near there showing the dvds they are selling. Because it was close to Xmas they were showing kids movies to tempt the kids and their parents and there was a little tot mesmerised by Shrek. It was in English with Italian sub titles and I know the kidlet couldn't read yet - but anyway he was lost to the world.
What to buy: Here is Nemorino's explanation of why it is called fnac. Thank you Nemorino.
"fnac was originally the abbreviation for Fédération Nationale d'Achats pour Cadres = National Purchasing Federation for Managers, which is what it started out to be in 1954. I book French opera tickets through fnac sometimes."Add to your Trip Planner
Studio Amaranto: An unusual souvenir
Do you want to leave Italy with something special, that will always remind you sunny days, historical places.. or just bring happiness into your heart ? This is what you need ! A print of Amaranta's work. Once there used to be a workroom close to Ponte Pietra, but sadly it has now closed. But you can see all the prints on a web site and hopefully buy them through it.
I once gave one to my mother as a present for her birthday, it hangs in our flat by the sea.. I still have many others on my list to buy... the wonderful cats and some of our beautiful cities.

Clothes & shoes: The look for less at Bershka
The look for less....
So ladies I had only visited Bershka previously earlier this year and I was in and out and never gave the store a chance. Then today....BAM!!!! I was inside for 2 hours, browsing, trying on clothes, matching items, etc. The clothing is reasonable and they carry many items in the same sizes, which is nice because it is so sad to find a shirt and then it's not in your size.
I would compare this store to a "Rocker-esque" Zara boutique. And if you love Zara you will enjoy Bershka. The items are ranging from 4 Euro-49.90 Euro. They carry shoes, belts, and accessories among the other many fun items you can think of. And there is an upstairs which has some funky work-out wear. So if you are up to to the challenge go ahead jump in and have fun making your outfit. No need for a massive amount of cash 50 Euro will get you a cute,funky outfit.
What to buy: Everything!!!!!
What to pay: Spend whatever you want!
I say between 1Euro-1000EuroAdd to your Trip Planner

Verona isn't a very cheap place to go shopping. It is located close to the Lago di Garda, in one of Italy's wealthiest regions. The shops and prices reflect that, and so you find brands like Gucci, Armani or Louis Vitton along the main shopping street Via Mazzini.Add to your Trip Planner
