Great views from here!

Well worth the steep climb to the top to get some of the best views of the city. Enjoy a coffee once you reach the top at the restaurant/cafe there.

This church is amazing, a must see in Verona. The affrescos and the statues are very well done and full of history. There is a terrific sigh seeing near this church that every one must see it.

It's a steep climb but it's well worth the unbelievable views from the top of the hill. Do this on a cooler day as it is much more difficult in the heat

Plenty of steps - enough to get you puffing - but not too arduous a climb from via S Stefano opposite il Ponte Pietra. There are longer routes by road either side of the hill (maybe 1-2 km) for those who cannot manage the steps. The Castel is under renovation work but the view from the Piazzale is spectacular; to...

Walking up here is not hard, but of course there are stairs. It's possible to reach the top and enjoy the view even by car, but honestly I prefered to walk. Great both for couples romantic moments and to take pictures with friends. Not far from the city centre, it gives a complete idea of the city. Personally I suggest... More
