  • The most beautiful square in Europe, surely. Yet it was largely ignored until recently, and then bars and restaurants started locating there. The portico in the North West corner is one of the only works of Fra Giacomo. A real rarity. Dante is in the middle of the square. Check out the tombs of the Scaligeri at the north east of the square. To the east there are glass panels in the floor where you can see the old Roman town. Torre del Lamberti is a must see - don't be scared, so to the top, where can discern the Roman, Scaligeri and then Venetian layout of the city. There you'll see some stairs and know what the rulers of Verona were called the Scaligeri (of the stairs). Make sure you go a little outside the square to the south east, where you'll find the stairs and architecture of the back of Piazza Erbe. Quite a sight.
