Verona Porta Nuova train station is a major cross-junction station and is located in the south of Verona city centre. Around 300 trains pass by its 12 platforms every day, and Verona can be reached via direct, national and international routes, with high-speed trains available too. Bologna to Verona is a 50-minute journey, Venice to Verona takes 1 hour, whilst Milan to Verona is just 1 hour 15 minutess. From the station, visitors can walk to the centre in 20 minutes. Buses and taxis are also available, and they are particularly convenient for passengers with a lot of luggage. Verona airport, on the other hand, can be reached in around 15 minutes from the station, thanks to buses running at 20-minute intervals throughout the day until midnight. Although smaller, the city is also served by a second train station in the east, called Verona Porta Vescovo.
Thanks to its compact nature, Verona is an easy city to get around, with many attractions reachable within a 15-minute walk from Verona Porta Nuova train station. Museo della Radio is just under 2 km away, and so it requires just over a 15-minute walk from the station. Here, visitors can explore the quirky tribute to the inventor of the wireless, Guglielmo Marconi. Located in a former convent, just around the corner from here is the Museum of Frescoes, with some interesting and well-preserved paintings. Attached to it is what’s claimed to be Juliet’s tomb (the ill-fated character in Shakespeare’s play about star-crossed lovers). Reaching the historic centre requires a further 10-minute walk. Here, visitors will find the city's largest square, Piazza Bra. Overlooking it is the Gran Guardia palace with its magnificent arches and elegant steps, as well as the ancient Roman amphitheatre, which was built in the first century but is still in use today! A further 500-metre stroll will lead to Casa di Giulietta (Juliet’s House), with the iconic balcony from which Romeo courts his heroine!
Along the way, visitors should stop for refreshments in some of Verona’s best areas to eat, found between Via Cappello, Via Giuseppe Mazzini and near Piazza Bra. All are around 2 km from the station, and so just 20 minutes on foot. Travellers can expect to see some traditional dishes on the menu, like tastasal (rice with ground pork), polenta infasola (with beans), and a sweet polenta dessert called osei. Visitors wanting to sample some of the local wines might enjoy a glass of Bardolino or Valpolicella alongside their meal.
