This 14th-Century palace has been beautifully renovated and converted into a sophisticated award-winning hotel. It has a blend of historic and contemporary styles, fantastic service, a peaceful ambience and an unrivalled location in the heart of Verona, within easy walking distance of the Roman Arena, Verona Arena, Juliet’s House and the bustling Piazza delle Erbe. It is set right by Corso di Porta Borsari, one of the main streets, which is full of shops, restaurants and charming cafés.
Original frescoes, oil paintings and Roman mosaics provide a contrast against the chic and contemporary interiors, and a 14th-Century courtyard provides a charming setting for meals in the summer months. At the excellent restaurant Borsari 36 you can enjoy traditional Italian dishes overseen by a Michelin-starred chef. It also offers early bookings (from 6.30pm) and pre-theatre menus so it’s the ideal spot for a pre-opera dinner as the Verona Arena is less than a ten-minute walk away. At the elegant bar you can enjoy freshly-made cocktails inspired by seasonal fruit and vegetables, as well as fine Italian wines. Other facilities include a new fitness centre overlooking Palazzo Victoria’s courtyard, a sauna, classes and massages.
The individually-designed rooms vary in size and views. The cosy Classic Rooms overlook the internal courtyard and the Grand Deluxe Rooms are slightly larger. If you’re looking for extra living space then the Junior Suites and Suites both have a living area.
