Useful city facts
- Verona enjoys a humid subtropical climate with warm summers and mild winters. The average temperature is 29.2°C (84.6°F) in July and 6.1°C (43°F) in January. The precipitation is spread rather evenly between the seasons, with the period from March to May being slightly more rainy than the rest of the year.
- Like many other Italian cities, Verona boasts a long and fascinating history. First established in the 2nd century BC, it has been ruled by ancient Romans, Byzantines, Lombards, Venetians, and others. All of these groups have influenced the city’s appearance and traditions.
Top destinations and activities
- Arena. The impressive Roman amphitheater was built in the 1st century A.D. and despite suffering from a major earthquake in the 12th century, it remains one of the city’s main attractions to this day. Nowadays it sometimes hosts grand opera performances and the concerts of world-famous musicians like Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, and others.
- Basilica of San Zeno. Devoted to a 4th-century fisherman who became the Bishop (and later the patron saint) of Verona, the basilica was first built in the 9th century. Damaged and destroyed by invaders a number of times, it was always successfully renovated turning into a symbol of the resilience of the Veronese. The basilica and the Benedictine abbey located next to it still house the shrine of Zeno’s tomb as well as a smiling statue of the man himself.
- Castelvecchio. A fortified castle first built nearly 700 years ago, nowadays Castelvecchio houses the Verona City Art Museum. With an impressive collection of paintings, sculptures, and other artworks by medieval and Renaissance masters, the museum provides an insight into the city’s impressive history.
Traffic and parking tips
- The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h.
- Like in many other historic Italian cities, the traffic is limited in the historic center of Verona (the area is called the limited traffic zone or ZTL). As a visitor of the city, you are only be allowed to drive your rental car inside ZTL if your hotel is be located within the area. If that is the case, you have to ask your hotel about this and they’ll register your vehicle’s plate number with the local police and will provide you a designated parking area within the ZTL. Driving inside the ZTL without the special permit will lead to high fines. If unsure about which parts of Verona are inside ZTL or if you have any other questions regarding this topic, please ask your rental car provider for more information.
- Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. When it is raining, the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during periods of heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
- Proof insurance and the car’s documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
- If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
- The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment.
- The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.
There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of choice and the type of vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.
Ideas for a day-trip
- Venice. Although the sinking city obviously deserves a much longer visit than just a day trip, the fact that it is just a 90-minute drive east of Verona means you can still see it if you’re in a rush. Park your car near the center of Venice on the mainland and go admire the Doge’s Palace and the Clock Tower, roam through the narrow side streets to discover small cafeterias and art galleries, or travel to picturesque nearby islands like Murano.
- Lake Garda. The famous lake that is one of the favorite vacation places of Northern Italians is less than an hour’s drive from Verona. With a rental car, you can easily travel around it visiting towns like Torbole and Gargnano, enjoying the panoramic views from Monte Baldo or finding special spots and adventures of your own.
- Milan. Much more than just a business and fashion metropolis, Milan is a city that’s full of surprises. The historic center with the Duomo Cathedral and the Teatro alla Scala opera house is splendid. Its impressive museums cover not only art but also topics like archaeology and natural science. The parks on the southern side of the city are the perfect place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. Milan is just a two-hour drive west of Verona.
Most popular rental types and cars
The most popular rental car type in Verona is the mini, although many travelers also choose economy and compact vehicles. The most popular rental car is the Peugeot 108, followed by the Opel Corsa and the Fiat 500.
- Bologna. Historic, rebellious, and most importantly, delicious, Bologna is one of the most underrated cities of Northern Italy. While the Bolognese cuisine is the number one reason to come here because it’s so great, Bologna is also an upbeat university city with many events and festivals and some of the greatest bar and party culture in the country. From Verona, it’s only about a two-hour drive south.
- Switzerland. Southern Switzerland - the Italian-speaking part of the country - is one of the most picturesque regions of Europe. The mountain scenery is breathtaking. Towns like Locarno and Bellinzona look like they’re from fairy tales, and Lake Maggiore is just as scenic as Lake Garda. Lugano, the region’s capital, is just a 2-hour-and-30-minute drive northwest of Verona. Keep in mind that you’d be crossing an international border, so first, make sure your rental car provider allows it.
- Slovenia. With plenty of forests, mountains, valleys, a fun capital in Ljubljana and picturesque towns like Bled, it’s understandable why Slovenia is one of the up-and-coming travel destinations of Europe. Influenced by neighboring Hungarians, Austrians, and Italians, its unique culture is not to be missed. The Italian-Slovenian border is only about a three-hour drive east of Verona. Keep in mind that you’d be crossing an international border, so first, make sure your rental car provider permits it.
