Travel Information

Exploring Verona

Verona is located in the Veneto region of Italy, between Milan and Venice. There is a small regional airport in Verona, however, we recommend flying into Milan, and taking the train from Milano Centrale to Verona Porta Nova, which is about 1.5 hours. There are shuttles from the Milan airport that will take you straight to the train station. If you prefer, you may also fly to Venice, which is also about 1.5 hours away from Verona by train. More travel tips below.

Hotels + Lodgings

Our Recommendations

We recommend staying in the old city of Verona. It is a very walkable city, and there are many hotels and Airbnbs in the old city. The most centrally located hotels are Hotel Gabbia' D'Oro and Hotel Due Torri. For those of you looking for a more luxury experience in the old city, Vista Palazzo is an excellent option. Two other options that are in ideal locations are Lords of Verona and Albergo Mazzanti.

For a more American style, modern hotel, the Hotel Indigo Verona is a beautiful option that is just a 15-minute walk from the city center. Nearby is Hotel Trieste, which is also modern.

If you plan on booking an Airbnb or VRBO in the city, we advise finding something near Piazza Erbe. There are many beautiful villas in the city's surroundings, but please keep in mind that you will be responsible for your own transportation to/from events if you plan to stay outside of the old city.

Travel Planning

Want to make the most of your time in Italy?

Verona is located close to some of the country's most beautiful destinations.

Lake Garda, which is on the way to Verona from Milan, is beautiful, and the towns of Salò, Limone, and Sirmione are particularly charming.
Directly north of Verona you will find the Dolomites mountains, where you can do hiking trips from the cities of Trento or Bolzano or more remote villages. The neighboring cities of Vicenza and Mantua are lovely and are home to several architectural and artistic masterpieces of the Renaissance. Verona is also a short trip to many vineyards and wineries in Valpolicella and Franciacorta. Lake Como is less than an hour on the train from Milan, and is suitable for a day trip from Milan (get the daily ferry pass to visit all the towns on the lake!) or for a few days. Venice, of course, is not to be missed. Reach out to Jill for any specific recommendations if you go to Venice! Padua is a hidden gem just outside of Venice that is less touristy than Venice and has amazing art and food.

Feel free to reach out to us directly for any more tips!

Helpful Tips for Traveling to Italy


Do not forget to pack power adapters for Italy! Keep in mind that many blow dryers, hair straighteners, curling irons, etc., may not be compatible with the different voltage, even if you do have a power adapter. Please check in advance!

Italian taxis and cafés often only accept cash, so be sure to take out some Euros upon arrival.

Verona is a modern city, so you can find most toiletries and necessities at the city pharmacies and supermarkets.

Getting around

Most airports in Italy have regular buses going from the airport to the city's central train station at approximately 10 Euros a ticket. The most common bus companies are Terravision and Rome2Rio. You can buy the tickets at kiosks in the baggage claim area. Linked below is the Milan Malpensa bus schedule.

We advise buying train tickets in advance when possible and reserving a specific seat if you can. This helps eliminate confusion when boarding. The app Omio, linked below, is a great and user-friendly app you can use to buy train tickets on all the various train lines.

In Italy, you can only get cabs at cab stands in the city. You cannot hail them on the street, even if they are empty. Look for white signs that say "TAXI" throughout the city and at train stations, and that is where you can get a cab. There is no Uber or Lyft in Italy at this time.
