5 things to do in Verona for a girls’ weekend
We often write about Verona as the city of love par excellence, but what better occasion than the International Women’s Day to discover it as the ideal city for a girls’ weekend? Here are some suggestions on the best activities for a weekend with your besties.
A walk in the historic center
Streets and squares of rare beauty will guide you through the historic center of Verona. Let yourself be enchanted by the history, the architecture and the legends that have animated our city for centuries and that make it so special not only to us, but also to visitors from all over the world.
During your itinerary, don’t forget to dedicate a few minutes to our favorite photographic spots, which we talked about in the article dedicated to the 10 most instagrammable places in Verona. It will be the ideal opportunity to collect some memories of the weekend together.
Relax at the Spa
In our opinion, this is one of the best activities to indulge in for a girls’ weekend! From Verona you can easily reach high-level spas where you can spend a day – or even just a few hours – of complete and well-deserved relaxation, unplugging and dedicating quality time to yourself.
In particular, we recommend Aquaria, in the charming setting of Sirmione on Lake Garda, and Aquardens, in Pescantina. Both locations are easily accessible by car from the center of Verona and offer a wide choice of tickets and packages.
A guided tour with tasting in Valpolicella
An activity that we definitely recommend you to plan during your girls’ weekend in Verona is a guided tour with tasting in a Valpolicella winery. Valpolicella is an area with a strong and rooted wine tradition, where wines that are appreciated all over the world are produced. Last but not least, this area is also well known for its natural beauty.
The best way to explore it is to book our special Discover Verona package, which includes a visit to the wine shop and a tasting of 4 wines at the prestigious Valpolicella Tommasi Family Estates winery.
An Opera night at the Verona Arena
If your weekend in Verona takes place in the summer, an opera night at the Verona Arena will make it even more unique and special. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend a show in the largest open-air opera house in the world, dating back to the 1st century AD.
If you want to know more, you will find a lot of tips and curiosities in the article dedicated to Verona and the Opera: a love story at the Arena. During your stay, our staff is always available to provide you with the best advice regarding shows and tickets.
When it comes to shopping, friends are often the best advisors. In the historic center of Verona, via Mazzini is known as the “shopping street”: a long and elegant pedestrian street with boutiques for all tastes that will take you from Piazza Bra to Piazza Erbe. From here, take Corso Porta Borsari, a less busy street where you can find jewelers, pastry shops and historic boutiques.
If you rather prefer antiques, make sure you take a stroll in Corso Santa Anastasia and visit Verona Antiquaria, on the first Sunday of the month, in the San Zeno district.
