This is a two star auberge achieving well above its rating. Located just off the Piazza Bra and the Roman Arena it is an excellent base for the Verona Opera Experience, especially the spectacular 1913 restaging of Aida ... pinch the wallet and sit in the front rows. No one should miss this excitement, it's real bucket list quality. Hotel Torcolo fronts one alley (vicolo) and one street and can be noisy with traffic and servicing ... italian style and character ... but our room and bathroom was triple glazed and quiet and comfortable. Breakfast is outside the hotel tables located between alley and street, with two restaurants immediately adjacent, one further along the alley and one on the Hotel ground floor winding round two sides, outside and inside .. the Torcolo restaurant, same name but independant with poncy table wear and chandeliers hanging under umbrella shades ... fun at night before and after the opera .. with cries of 'bravo maestro' resonating between adjoining facades. The two restaurants adjoin with drive space between to an adjoining garage and eating in either brings back memories of 'The Italian Job' as cars glide in and out between courses! The Torcolo staff were extremely friendly and the hotel manageresses, friends, helpful and fun to talk with. Breakfast, included in the tariff, was continental but more than adequate. Well recommended.
