it’s a restricted traffic area (ZTL) under electronic surveillance to monitor the access of unauthorised vehicles.

Due to the limited size of the historic centre, walking is one of the best choices to appreciate and discover even its most hidden corners, following, for example, one of the itineraries we proposed (time itineraries, historical itineraries, theme itineraries) or your own custom itinerary.

A bike sharing service has been recently launched in the city. It is the ideal if you love cycling and want to reach quickly even the furthest areas (e.g., the Church of S. Zeno).

The public transport service in Verona is provided by the ATV company and is a great alternative if you want to move around the city or reach the suburbs.

Parks and green spaces

Park of the walls

The defensive walls stretch for about 9 km and were turned into a public green area only after world war two. Erected for military purposes, they protected the city surrounding the entire historic centre. The perimeter of the walls is interspersed with towers, bastions, ramparts, and city gates (such as Porta Nuova, Porta Palio and Porta San Zeno). These areas are now occupied by gardens, picnic areas and a fitness trail. They represent the green lung of the city and include the stretch from Giardini Raggi di Sole (near Ponte San Francesco), to the former Giardino Zoologico up to Bastioni Orti di Spagna.

Arsenale Green Space

A large green area has been set up near Castelvecchio, crossing the beautiful Ponte Scaligero. Once, this was the seat of the Military Arsenal, built during the Habsburg rule, but today it can be used to have a relaxing break during a visit to the historic centre. In the summer, it is a great place to cool off thanks to the large garden and the pool, recently converted from the pre-existing one.

Park of Colombare and Torricelle

Garden of Piazza Bra

At the end of the 19th century, Piazza Bra took its current appearance with the creation of the gardens (with a magnificent specimen of Cedar of Lebanon) and the statue of the First King of Italy. The central fountain was donated by the city of Munich in 1975 on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the town twinning agreements between the two cities.

Garden of Indipendenza Square

This beautiful gardens are located in the proximity of Piazza Erbe and Piazza dei Signori, adjacent to the Scavi Scaligeri. They were inaugurated at the end of the nineteenth century and are characterised by the presence of imposing plants, including two male Gingko Biloba trees, especially appreciated by Asian tourists as they are sacred plants for them.

Giusti Garden

“Giardino Giusti” are late Renaissance gardens that with their parterre, the maze and the remains of a small temple are definitely worth visiting. The Gardens were already known and admired by travellers of the Grand Tour and other illustrious personalities, and over the centuries they have become one of the most visited attractions in town.

Park of the North Adige

In the northwestern area of the city, between the districts of Chievo and Parona, you will find an environment rich in local flora and fauna which also houses an accessible ancient rural court (Corte Molon).

Park of South Adige

It is found in the south of the city, between the districts of Porto San Pancrazio and San Michele Extra, and it extends for 37 hectares. It contains Isola del Pestrino, an area of fundamental importance for the protection of flora and fauna.
