You can trace his journey in previous blogs. Neil, our Product Director, travelled first from Rome by train to Tuscany. From Verona he continues to glorious Venice...
The beautiful old city of Verona is particularly stunning. Plenty of piazzas, cobbled streets and incredible views of the surrounding river and hills at almost every turn. Equally enjoyable is that the place still feels really ‘local’. At aperitivo time all the Veronese are out in force in the bars, cafes and piazzas and the atmosphere is really special. The Veronese are very proud of their local cuisine and there are an uncountable number of tapas-style cafes and bars as well as traditional trattorias – just wandering the streets and popping in for a bite and a drink is a great way to sightsee.

A wonderful location right beside the ancient walled entrance to the city. The building itself dates back to the 14th century and the hotel incorporates much of the original Veronese décor while combining with some unique art deco touches. We recommend the suites with their dramatic high ceilings, wrap around iron balconies and in-room antiquities. The hotel features an internal garden with columns and courtyard furniture which gives plenty of natural light and an al-fresco ambience.

How to get to Palazzo Victoria by train and car
The hotel is just 5 minutes by taxi from the station and 15 minutes from Verona airport (Catullo, Villafranca). A car transfer from Venice airport takes 1 hr 10 mins, from Milan Malpensa airport 1 hr 40 mins, from Florence 2 hrs 20 mins. On his Italian journey Neil took a road transfer from Il Borro to Florence (1 hr) and then train (2 hrs) to Verona.
