Verona has so much to offer, both in terms of traditional historical/archaeological sightseeing and in terms of fun and entertainment.
In addition, of course, to the main monuments in the oldest part of the city (the Arena, the Roman Theatre, The Scaliger Tombs, the ancient bridges, Castel San Pietro hill and the Torre dei Lamberti tower with the nearby Piazza dei Signori and Piazza delle Erbe), many other important attractions are spread across the entire province.
What to see:
– Lake Garda with its wonderful towns. Almost the entire eastern side of the Lake falls within the province of Verona, from Peschiera del Garda to Malcesine, passing through Bardolino (and its famous wine-making region) on to Garda and Torri del Benaco.
– The Parco Giardino Sigurtà Parks and Gardens in Valeggio sul Mincio
– Borghetto, close to Valeggio, ranked as one of the prettiest villages in Italy
– Valpolicella, home to the wine of the same name and the famous red wines Amarone and Recioto
– The other famous wine regions in the province, Custoza and Soave, are also full of history
– The hiking and skiing areas of Monte Baldo, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Lake Garda, and the Monti Lessini hills.
Several famous theme parks, water parks and thermal spas in the surrounding area are certainly worth a mention:
– Gardaland, the third largest theme park in Europe and the first in Italy, and Seaworld
– CanevaWorld AquaParadise, Europe’s number one water park
– Movieland, a theme park dedicated to the world of cinema
– Natura Viva Safari Park and Zoo, member of the world’s leading organisations for the protection of species at risk of extinction
– Antiche Terme di Giunone Thermal Park, popular since Roman times
– Villa dei Cedri Thermal Park, with its thermal lakes (temperatures between 33° and 38°C)
