A Romantic New Hotel Just Opened In Romeo And Juliet’s Hometown Of Verona

The northern Italian city of Verona, famed as the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, gets its first new five-star hotel in decades.

Fair Verona is about to get that much more romantic this May, thanks to the opening of its newest luxury hotel Vista Palazzo Verona, housed in a nineteenth century mansion in a quiet courtyard, just a few steps from Juliet’s balcony—one of the city’s most famous attractions. The new boutique bolthole has 16 individually styled keys, plus ultra-luxurious amenities, like an indoor swimming pool (a first for a Veronan hotel); spa and gym; library; wine-tasting room; restaurant; and rooftop terrace, with some of the best views over the red-roofed city.

The spa is particularly impressive: During the restoration process, a Roman well was discovered and later incorporated into the sleek design of the spa pool. This ancient-meets-contemporary style continues throughout the intimate property, with hand-hewn marquetry floors; textiles by luxury Milanese fabric house, Dedar; and bathrooms clad in an exquisite array of marbles. Vista Palazzo Verona’s grand suites are especially spoiling, spreading out over 1,022 square feet.

With Juliet as a neighbor and the Roman amphitheater, Arena di Verona, just a short walk away, the location—in the heart of the medieval Centro Storico on the banks of the Adige river—is nothing short of ideal. Plus, there’s the surrounding countryside to explore: Home to the vineyards of Amarone and Valpolicella, this is prime wine territory.

Vista Palazzo Verona is located at Corticello Leoni 3, 37121 Verona, Italy. Rates start at €670.
