Weekent trip to Verona

In the footsteps of the Scaliger

On the second day of our weekend trip, the ZAINOO tour leads in the western part of the city to the most important churches of Verona and to the Castelvecchio, the seat of power of the Scaliger.

Day 2 in the morning:

  • Day 2 starts again at the Piazza Brà. Visitors who love going to museums can have a look at the Museo Lapidario Maffeiano (VeronaCard is valid), which houses the largest collection of Greek grave inscriptions in Italy.
  • Heading along the Via Roma, you will now reach the Castelvecchio, the main castle of Verona. The adjoining museum (VeronaCard is valid) contains one of the largest art collections in Europe.
  • Through an archway you will reach the Ponte Scaligero, which leads directly from the castle over the Adige river. Here you will have a beautiful view over the Adige and the Castelvecchio with the old town in the background.
  • Depending on how much energy you have today, the Castelvecchio is the perfect starting point for the 1-kilometre walk along the Rigaste San Zeno to the Basilica San Zeno (VeronaCard is valid), one of the most beautiful churches in Verona.
  • When walking along the Corso Cavour you should take a short look at the unassuming church of San Lorenzo, which was partly built with stones from the Roman arena, before you reach the Porta Borsari old city gate.

Day 2 in the afternoon:

  • After lunch, follow the Corso Porta Borsari to the Chiesa di Sant’Anastasia (VeronaCard is valid), the largest church in Verona with some masterpieces inside.
  • Once outside again in front of the main portal, turn right along the Via Duomo to the cathedral of Verona, which also offers some artistic highlights for its visitors.
  • After visiting the cathedral, walk over the Ponte Pietra, Verona’s oldest bridge, and go on to the Teatro Romano (VeronaCard is valid) with the adjoining archaeological museum.
  • You can enjoy a beautiful view over Verona in the sunset from one of the terraces of the Castel San Petro above the Roman theatre.

Day 2 in the evening:

  • Performances take place in the evening in the arena and the Teatro Romano. One of the many restaurants in the city centre offers the perfect setting for spending the time before the evening performance or for seeing out the day comfortably.


If you have more time on your hands, you can, of course, expand our tour proposals and explore other attractions of Verona such as the grave of Juliet, the museum of modern art and many other sights on an individual city walk through Verona.
