The best places to grab drinks in Verona
1) Terrazza Arena Sky Lounge Bar & Restaurant
Located in the Hotel Milano and Spa, the rooftop bar offers sweeping views of the arena. Impressive views both in the day and at night. Its a perfect place for an afternoon Apertivo, can you say Aperol Spritz Please?!
This coffee and wine bar, situated on a quiet side street, is the perfect reprieve from the crowded streets of Verona’s city centre. There is a large restaurant in the back if you want to escape. Up front, the entrance is strategically lined with a few high-top tables for people watching if that is more appealing. Stop for a glass of wine and some snacks.
3) Roof Top Terrace of Due Torri Hotel
One of the highest points in Verona this is a great place to stop on your way to dinner and take in the sunset. Try their Rossini (prosecco with fresh strawberry puree) it’s delicious. Your drink includes complimentary hors-d’oeuvres but be careful not to overindulge, because dinner in Verona will knock your socks off. The terrace is a unique location to enjoy an Italian cocktail while admiring a breathtaking view the Lamberti Tower, the Duomo, the Church of Saint Anastasia, S. Peter Castle and the Torricelle Hills and all the Roman parts of the city.
4) Terrazza Bar Al Ponte
Located at the edge of the river this beautiful patio has a stunning view. Unlike many of the spots, you may grab a drink in the city; this one is set apart from the chaos of the piazzas. The ambience is lovely, and the spectacular view of the Ponte Pietra and Teatro Romano is unparalleled. Grab a drink here and enjoy the sonances of the flowing water below.
5) Re Teodorico
Set atop the hill opposite Verona at Piazzale Castel San Pietro, this find is in a beautiful garden environment. The ultimate sunset viewing spot. Grab an aperetivo; you deserve it after the staircase climb to get here (for those less adventurous, don’t worry, you can take the lift). Make sure you stop and take a picture at the Piazzale Castel San Pietro before descending the hill.
6) Piazza Delle Erbe
One of the main piazzas in Verona, Erbe is a fabulous place day or night to sit for a spritz and take in action. During the day, tourists flock here for photos, and to browse the market stalls, and in the evening, the place transforms into a local watering hole. My preference for this place leans to nighttime. The lights and energy are magical. The perfect way to end an exciting day of exploring Verona.
