Piazza dei Signori, Verona

Piazza dei Signori, Verona (must see)

A popular spot with the locals, Piazza dei Signori was once the former center of power for the city of Verona. In fact, it is surrounded by many historical and government buildings to this day. The piazza is named after a statue of Italian poet Dante Alighieri that is located in the square.

All of the buildings in the court display beautiful design. The Loggia del Consiglio features double-columned windows and statues of Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin of the Annunciation. It also adorned with statues of Gaius Valerius Catullus, Pliny the Elder, Aemilius Macer, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, Cornelius Nepos, Palazzo del Podestà, and other famous people who were born in Verona. Currently, it is the provincial seat of Verona.

The Palazzo del Governo was the former seat of power for the Scaliger family. Although most of the original design of the building has been lost, there are a few frescoes in the courtyard that one can enjoy.

The Palazzo dei Tribunali features two cannons in the palace courtyard and remnants of a mosaic floor. The Casa della Pièta displays a seated woman with a flag, the symbol of the city of Verona in ancient times. Three other buildings, the Palazzo del Comune, the Palazzo del Capitanio, and the Loggia del Consiglio are joined with elegant arches.

For those who wish to have quick access to the square, the Continental, the Carlton, the Maison Matilda, the Locanda San Tomaso, the 19 Borgo Cavour, and the Maison Maggy are located less than a mile away.

Why You Should Visit:
Most elegant and aristocratic square in Venice, with fewer crowds than some of the others but with plenty of monumental architecture – and, certainly, history.

Tip:
Worth having binoculars for the detail!
