“Wonderful at Christmas!”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

I was there just at the beginning of the holiday season. The piazza was decorated with a tree and the outdoor market was so much fun to explore. Nestled off the side into another area was the Christmas Market, which was fantastic. I found some really nice gifts to take home.

“Beautiful piazza”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Sure its touristy but that can't hide how beautiful this piazza is. I think I spent 45 minutes at a cafe just taking pictures. This is just a great place to soak it all in and just enjoy life.

“Beautiful Piazza”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

I fell in love with this beautiful Piazza. They have a Christmas Market at this time of the year, with beaufiful items prepared by local artisans, cheeses, chocolates, beer, and gorgeous christmas ornaments. There are also nice restaurants and cafes, as well as shops in the area. A must see in Verona!

“Amazing Piazza delle Erbe”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Sit here in one of the century-old cafés and just enjoy the hiostorical surroundings coming from 800+ year old buildings. Stand in the middle and look up to the clock towers, take a good look at the paintings on the walls and the decorations just beneath the roodtops. Beautiful!

“Tourist central, but loved it.”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Lined with restaurants, this square is full of tourists but the restaurant prices are very reasonable. The centre of the square is full of market stalls selling everything from fresh fruit salad, pizzas and foccacias to all types of souvenirs you can imagine. I loved it!
