Fair Verona

I'm interested in traveling to Verona--does anyone have any suggestions for what to see/do/restaurants/museums/etc.? also, how close is Verona to Padua? Also interested in Padua. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Jackie, my family and I spent only one night in Verona this past October. It is a beautiful city. We mainly strolled. Piazza Bra has a beautiful Roman amphitheatre (built in AD30) right in the middle of it, which is fun to visit and climb to the top. From there you can look over and view the city and watch the evening strollers around the Piazza. We visited only one of several stunning churches, the Cathedral of Verona. Piazza Erbe is a lovely place with an incredible 14th century fountain of the Madonna of Verona and 16th century statue of St. Mark's Lion. You must also see the Scaligeri Tombs just down from the Piazza Dei Signori. It's a masterpiece of 14th century Gothic funerary art. Needless to say, we missed alot of Verona but saw enough to know we'd like to go back. Enjoy.

A couple of suggestions from someone who was there in October: Ristorante Greppia a very fine meal. Many of the guide books may mention it, but it actually lives up to its billing. And, for a nice change of pace, you might visit the Giusti Gardens again, something not entirely unknown but well worth the trip.

anyone LIVE in Verona? Is it easy to find work there? And how big exactly is Verona? And Padua visitors? Anyone?

Thanks!

One more question:

Anyone LIVE in Verona? Do you know if it's hard for an American to find work there? And what kind of work is available?

Also, how big exactly is Verona? Thanks for the feedback thus far!
