11 days in Verona

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (retirees) are returning to Italy for a leisure trip. Since we have spent previous trips frenetically seeing the museums, churches, and highlights of Italy, we are thinking this trip is more of a slow, daily exploration of the region. We would love to hear of suggestions for Padua, Vincenza, Alps di Suisi, etc. We look forward to observing Italian life from a café, a train ride, or a day tour. I would appreciate any suggestions (including restaurants).
Thanks.

    hi Chub,

    does this mean that you are already set upon opening 11 days staying in Verona? or that you are looking at the region of the Veneto in general?

    A few days in Verona might be nice, but there are other places to base yourself in, a few of which you've mentioned. and what time of year are we talking about? will you have a car or stick to the trains?

    I can appreciate that you don't want to drag luggage around, or race around, but don't forget that much of Italy -- even northern Italy -- closes up mid-day. So even if you pick one "base" for days on end, if you plan to use that base for "exploring" the region -- not just the city itself -- you can still end up feeling rushed because you have to hurry through breakfast to catch the early morning train so that you get to your day trip destination before everything closes.

    The most attractive rental apartments are usually not near the train station, so unless you take taxis all the time, that too becomes a factor about how rushed your trip feels. If you are out on a day trip, you might feel like you should quit "exploring" by 5pm (just when your day trip town is coming back to life), so you can get back to the train station in time to catch a train that will get you back to Verona in time to walk back to your apartment and shower before dinner. One of the nicest aspects of Verona is its cocktail hour, so you might feel in a rush to participate if you have been out day tripping.

    So with 11 days, you might consider spending 5 or 6 of them in Verona and just Verona, but then try someplace else for the remainder, or try a combo like Verona 5 + 3 + 3 (like, Verona 5 + Mantova 3 + Modena 3 -- or you could sub Trento or Vicenza or a lake town or Bologna -- etc).

    Verona is a fab place to spend 11 days if you plan to go to music concerts, do a lot of your own cooking, and explore many of the off-the beaten track corners of Verona while still enjoying long lunches, lazy breakfasts and the cocktail hour. But I'm not sure it makes a great place to stay for 11 days straight if you want to explore the surroundings and will be commuting on trains the majority of your days there.
