Romantic arias drift across from the nearby Arena di Verona; shoppers throng the ultra-chic boutiques, restaurants and galleries of Via Mazzini and the Corso di Porta Borsari. This is the smart central setting for the Palazzo Victoria, a palace by name and nature, built at the beginning of the fourteenth century. Within its gracious interior, individually designed rooms and suites are decorated in the style of the Veneto region – ornate furnishings, traditional parquet floors, grand marbled bathrooms and, in some cases, original frescoes. Some too, have wrap-around balconies from which to watch the well-heeled world go by. Elegant yet unstuffy, Borsari 36 offers fine dining created by Michelin-starred chef Carmine Calo who gives Italian and regional cuisine a delicious twist. Relax in the enclosed gardens or take a short stroll to Juliet’s house. Enchanting Castelvecchio Castle is a five minute walk away; Milan and Venice can both be reached in an hour’s drive.

Italy is a year round destination especially for city breaks, with a largely temperate climate with regional variations. Summers are hot especially from Rome southwards, whilst spring and autumn are mild. Winter in the south is warmer and drier than in the northern and central areas which can be much colder with snow fall in the mountainous regions.
