Busting with activity and a central point for transportation and jumping on tours etc. Not as quaint as some of the smaller Piazzas but definitely worth walking through.

Piazza Bra is the highlight of Verona. Open air restaurants; plenty of seating; great people watching; wonderful ice cream. Easy access to downtown shopping and the arena. You cannot go wrong starting your visit to Verona in Piazza Bra.

One of the few places in Verona where seating is available, in a nicely tended garden with a large open area in front of restaurants offering al fresco dining. Adjacent to the Arena and tourist information office, and with convenient access to clean public toilets...More
