Piazza delle Erbe, Verona

Piazza delle Erbe, Verona (must see)

The Piazza delle Erbe, or the Square of Herbs, is located between the Via Mazzini and the Corso Porta Borsari. It served as the town forum during the Roman Empire. Today, it is a meeting place, marketplace, and home of the city’s administration. For centuries, the gathering space has served as the heart of the community.

One of the most beautiful features of the Piazza is the Madonna Verona, a 14th-century Roman sculpture that dates back to 380 AD. In addition, many of the buildings, such as the Casa Mazzanti, are decorated with beautiful frescoes.

Herbs, clothes, refreshments, and souvenir items are sold in the square. Some of the other buildings in the piazza include the Tower Lamberti, the tallest tower in Verona and the Palazzo Commune, the municipal square. Other buildings include the Domus Mercatorum, home to the Chamber of Commerce and the Palazzo Maffei, a Baroque building that is decorated with statues of Roman gods.

Those wishing for a quick bite to eat should try two restaurants located on the square, the Maffei and the Caffe delle Erbe. Other restaurants near the gathering place include the Nuovo Marconi, the Antico Caffe Dante, the Le Vecete, the Ristorante Arche, the Ristorante Greppia, the Bottega del Vino, and the Trattoria alla Colonna.

Why You Should Visit:
You could spend hours taking in all the intricacies of the architecture and soaking up the atmosphere, and you can spend a week here without visiting a place twice.

Tip:
Great place for Aperol spritz and aperitivi!
