Oh Verona, ta krasna Verona. Kako dolgo sem si jo želela obiskati, pa mi je končno uspelo za letošnje prvomajske. Vse odkar sem gledala film Pisma Juliji sem se navdušila nad tem mestom. Tukaj sem preživela nekaj dni in mestece dobro raziskala zato vam v tej objavi predstavljam svoj potovalni vodič, ki upam, da vam bo prišel prav. Čeprav je objava zelo obširna obljubim, da je vredna branja :) Če vas zanima kje prenočiti, kaj si ogledati in kje dobro jesti vas vabim k nadaljnjem branju.

Oh Verona, beautiful Verona. I wanted to visit this amazing city for such a long time, ever since I watched a movie named Letters to Juliet. I finally decided to go at the beginning of May and because I stayed there for a couple of days and discovered a whole city I wanted to share with you my travel guide. I hope that you will find this post useful. If you want to know where to stay, what to see and where to eat, keep reading. I promise this will be a very helpful post and that it is worth reading if you want to visit Verona.





KJE PRENOČITI / WHERE TO STAY

Vsekakor vam priporočam Borgo dei Tigli Mood Apartment - apartma v katerem sva bivala s fantom, rezervirala pa sva ga preko spletne strani Booking. Najin apartma je bil lociran čisto zraven centra, le 5 min hoje do središča mesta. Hoja do mesta je prijetna in raje sem izbrala hotel, ki ni čisto v samem centru, zaradi manjšega hrupa. Vse o nastanitvi si preberite tukaj. Meni je bila najbolj všeč lokacija, opremljenost stanovanja, kuhinja, krasen pogled iz balkona, udobje, dekoracija in prijaznost gostiteljice. Če vas zanima ta apartma vas vabim, da si preberete mojo oceno na spleni strani booking.com. Mislim, da boljše nastanitve ne boste našli.

I definitely recommend Borgo dei Tigli Mood Apartment where my boyfriend and I stayed for 4 days. We booked it through booking.com and you can find all about it here. This apartment is located really close to the city centre, only 5 minutes walking distance. But I rather chose an apartment that's not totally central because of the less noise. What I liked the most about this apartment was the location, price, decoration, furniture, balcony view, comfort and the kindness of the owner. If you want to book this apartment I suggest you read my review on Booking. I think you will not find a better apartment than this one.

KAJ SI OGLEDATI V VERONI / WHAT TO SEE IN VERONA

Verona ponuja toliko zanimivih stvari, da si je skoraj nemogoče ogledati vse, kljub temu, da mesto ni tako veliko. Midva sva v teh dneh videla ogromno, zato bi priporočala vsem, da si rezervirate vsaj cele tri dni za oglede. Večinoma so vse spodaj naštete znamenitosti locirane v samem centru Verone, kar je odlično za tiste, ki se vam ne da veliko hoditi. Jaz sem spodaj napisale tiste, ki so me najbolj navdušile, zagotovo pa je znamenitosti še več. Za popolno listo le-teh kliknite tukaj

Zagotovo najbolj odmevna znamenitost je Julijin balkon. Tega sem se tudi sama najbolj veselila, vendar me je razočarala nenormalna gneča, zaradi katere se nisem mogla niti normalno premikati. Balkon sam po sebi ni nič posebnega. Ogled balkona od zunaj je brezplačen, za vstop pa se plača vstopnina, a si ga midva od znotraj nisva odločila ogledati. 

Arena Verona vam bo dala občutek, kot da ste v rimskih časih. Ta amfiteater je sicer manjši od tistega v Rimu, a je vseeno vreden ogleda. V okolici je veliko prostora za sprehode, zraven je tudi krasen trg in park (Piazza Bra) in pa število dragih kavarn in restavracij. Velikokrat v areni prirejajo razne koncerte in dogodke.

Grad Castelvecchio je čudovit primer gotske arhitekture. Ob sončnem zahodu se je najlepše sprehoditi po mostu od tega gradu in skozi majhna okenca opazovati reko Adige, ki teče skozi Verono. Ogledate si lahko tudi muzej Castelvecchio, a si ga midva nisva uspela. 

Torre dei Lamberti je razgledni stolp, s katerega se vidi skoraj cela Verona. Plačati se mora vstopnina v katero je vključen tudi ogled galerije, ki je pod stolpom. Ta galerija (polno ime: Galleria d'Arte Moderna Achille Forti)  je bila meni zelo všeč in sem vesela, da je bila všteta zraven v ceno. 

Most Ponte Pietra krasi število razglednic, ki jih lahko kupite v Veroni. Povezuje eno stran Verone z drugo, pod mostom pa teče reka Adige. S tega mostu lahko naredite krasne fotografije. 

Porta Borsari so starodarvna rimska vrata, ki stojijo čisto ob vstopu v center Verone. Za temi vrati je široka ulica, ki se imenuje Corso Porta Borsari s polno majhnimi dragimi butičnmi trgovinicami in restavracijami.

Piazza delle Erbe je najbolj znan trg v središču Verone. V neposredni bližini je fontana Piazza delle Erbe, baročna palača Palazzo Maffei,  Casa dei Mercanti in Torre dei Lamberti (opisano zgoraj), s katerega so vidne vse te naštete stavbe. Na trgu najdete stojnice z italijanskimi dobrotami, kot so testenine in začimbe in pa tudi oblačila, torbice, sadje...

Grad Castel San Pietro je za razliko od Castelvecchio gradu lociran nekaj minut hoje od centra in je kot večina gradov na vzpetini. Potka do gradu je sicer strma in ozka, a obdana z majhnimi pisanimi hiškami, kar vam bo dalo občutek, kot da ste nekje v Sloveniji v Goriških Brdih. Na poti je tudi odličen lokal - Re Teodorico, s kateriga imate najlepši pogled na Verono. 

Arco dei Gavi je marmorni obok, ki stoji malo ven iz samega centra, v neposredni bližini gradu Castelvecchio. Nekaj korakov stran od tega imate čudovit pogled na reko Adige in most gradu. 

Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore, Piazza dei Signori, Santa Maria Antica, Verona Cathedral, Porta Leoni, Gardello tower, Scaliger Tombs so tudi vsi vredni ogleda :) Najbrž sem jih pozabila našteti vse, ker je teh stvari ogromno. Kar sva naredila midva in priporočam tudi vam je, da se enostavno sprehajate po mestu in se "izgubite". Midva sva tako ob poti videla veliko zanimivih stavb, ruševin in fontan, ki ne vem kako se imenujejo, ampak ravno to je čar raziskovanja, da ob poti najdeš nekaj zanimivega.

Verona offers so many interesting sights that it's very hard to see everything in a short period of time, despite the fact that the city is not very big. I would recommend everyone to do at least three days for sightseeing. Most of the attractions listed below are located in the very centre of Verona, which is great for those do not like to walk much. I've written down the ones that I liked most, but there are certainly more sights to see. Click here for a complete list of what to see in Verona. 

The most famous sight is Juliet's house/balcony. I was the most excited about seeing it, but was left disappointed by the abnormal crowd, which made it impossible to even move normally around the house. The balcony itself is not anything special. Seeing it from the outside is free, you only have to pay the entrance fee if you want to see the house from inside. 

Arena Verona will give you the feeling that you are in the Roman Empire. This amphitheatre is smaller than the one in Rome, but it is definitely worth a visit. There are a lot of walking paths around the Arena along with a beautiful park (Piazza Bra) and a number of (expensive) cafes and restaurants. The arena is internationally famous for hosting various concerts and events. 

Castelvecchio Castle is a wonderful example of Gothic architecture. At sunset is so nice to walk on the bridge of the castle and observe the Adige river flowing through Verona. You can also see the Castelvecchio Museum, but we did not have time for that. 

Torre dei Lamberti is a viewing tower, from which you can see almost the whole Verona. You must pay an entry fee which includes a tour of the gallery under the tower (full name: Galleria d'Arte Moderna Achille Forti). I liked it very much and I'm glad it was included in the price. 

The Ponte Pietra Bridge decorates the number of postcards that you can buy in Verona. It links one side of Verona to the other, and the river Adige flows under it. You can make beautiful photos of this bridge. 

Porta Borsari is an ancient Roman gate which was the main entrance to Verona in Roman times. Behind the gate is a wide street called Corso Porta Borsari which is full of expensive boutique shops and restaurants.

Piazza delle Erbe is the most famous square, located in the centre of Verona. Close by is the Piazza delle Erbe fountain, the Palazzo Maffei Palace, Casa dei Mercanti and Torre dei Lamberti (described above) from which all of these buildings can be seen. At the market, you can find stalls with Italian food, such as pasta and spices, as well as clothes, fruit, souvenirs and much more.

Castel San Pietro is unlike Castelvecchio Castle located a few minutes walk from the centre and is like most castles on a hill. The path to the castle is steep and narrow, but surrounded by small picturesque cottages. On the way up is also a great place - Re Teodorico, from which you have the most beautiful view of Verona. 

Arco dei Gavi is a beautiful ancient structure in Verona, located just a short walk from the centre and is surrounded by Castelvecchio Castle. A few steps away from this you have a wonderful view of the river Adige and the bridge of the castle. 

Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore, Piazza dei Signori, Santa Maria Antica, Verona Cathedral, Porta Leoni, Gardello tower, Scaliger Tombs are all worth a visit :) I recommend that you simply walk through the city and get lost. While walking through Verona we saw many interesting buildings, ruins and fountains, which I do not know how they are called, but that is the charm of exploring - to find something interesting along the way.

KJE DOBRO JESTI / WHERE TO EAT

Pravo vprašanje se glasi: "Kje ne jesti"?, ker je vsepovsod hrana zelo dobra. Za odlično "ta pravo" napolitansko pico in okusne špagete carbonara priporočam restavracijo v centru Verone, ki se imenuje Little Italy (klik). Tamkajšnji ambient je zelo prijeten, saj je restavracija skrita od gneče in hrupa, saj je locirana v majhni zakotni uličici. Za najboljšo grško solato in pizzo s tartufi ter krasnim pogledom na areno piporočam restavracijo Pepperino Verona (klik). Najboljše je sedeti zunaj, ker je pogled res enkraten. Za okusne burgerje priporočam Oblo comfort food (klik). Za najbolj okusne zajtrke in brunche priporočam Elk Bakery (klik) in Bakery house (klik). Za dober aperol spritz in izjemen pogled na Verono priporočam kavarno Re Teodorico (klik). 

Nasvet: izogibajte se kavarnam in restavracijam blizu znamenitosti kot je npr. arena in na glavnem trgu Piazza delle Erbe, ker so tam cene vrtoglave, postrežba slaba in hrana povprečna. Za sladico blizu arene sva plačala 7 eur. Raje uporabite tripadvisor in poglejte katere restavracije v vaši bližini so najbolje ocenjene. Še en namig je to, da jejte tam, kjer je gneča, ker je velika verjentost, da je tam dobra hrana :)

The real question is: "Where not to eat?" because food is very good everywhere. I recommend a restaurant in the centre of Verona, called Little Italy (click) for Neapolitan pizza and delicious spaghetti carbonara. The ambience of this place is very pleasant because the restaurant is hidden from the crowd and noise since it is located in a small, narrow alley. For the best Greek salad, pizza with truffles and a great view of Arena I recommend Pepperino Verona (click). It is best to sit outside because the view is really unique. For tasty burgers, I recommend Oblo comfort food (click). For the most delicious breakfast/brunch, I recommend Elk Bakery (click) and Bakery house (click). For a tasty Aperol spritz and an exceptional view of Verona, I recommend Cafe Re Teodorico (click). 

Tip: Avoid cafes and restaurants near attractions like Arena Verona and the Piazza delle Erbe, because the food at these restaurants is high-priced but not that tasty. For a dessert near the Arena, we paid 7 euro. I recommend using TripAdvisor to see which restaurants close to you are the best. One more tip that I would give to you is to pick a restaurant that is crowded because usually, this means that the food is good there.
