The night plans are definitely some of the best things to see and do in Verona at night, not to mention that the pictures you can take in the city at night, end up being some of the most special and beautiful memories you will have of the city.

1. Walking through the Piazza delle Erbe

The Piazza delle Erbe is located in the area that is now known as the ancient Roman forum. Around it you can see different buildings built in different periods of history, and you can also see stalls to buy souvenirs, so it is a very good place to enjoy the nightlife of the city.

The square offers different places where you can have a spritz and accompany it with a good traditional aperitif. At night you can see the Fontana di Madonna, which is a true symbol of the city. At the same time you will be able to see La Berlina and take many pictures in this place during the night atmosphere.

The good thing about going for a walk in this square at night, is that you enter a kind of time tunnel that takes you directly to the fifteenth century. Something that will impress you is the illumination of the place, so it is a good place to start some of the best tours of Verona.

Interesting details

  • Price: Walking around the square is free, although the prices of food and snacks that you can find on your tour vary.
  • Time: The idea is that you start walking around this square during the late afternoon and early evening.

Going for a walk to Juliet's balcony at night is one of the most romantic things you can do in the city, so right after paying the entrance fee to the museum, you can already go up to the second floor, to meet Juliet's famous balcony.

You will be able to take many pictures in this place, although you have to know that in summer season there are constant queues to enter, but they are not so long as to prevent you from including this visit among the best things to see and do in Verona in summer. Downstairs you will find many people waiting to be photographed with the statue of Juliet.

You will love to enter Juliet's house, especially because inside you will see many pieces of furniture dating back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. You could see all this both at night and during the day, but the magic of visiting this place at night, or at least at sunset, is that the atmosphere is much more romantic, ideal for a couple's plan.

Interesting details

  • Price: The price may vary according to the number of places you want to visit within the complex. The entire entrance costs approximately 6 euros, while for groups larger than fifteen people, the cost can go down to 4.50 euros.

Among the best things you can do at night in the city, is to attend one of the popular concerts that take place in the amphitheater of the city, which by the way, if you do not know how to visit the Arena of Verona, I recommend that before you go, know what are the ticket prices, schedules, among other data.

Inside the Arena of Verona you can enjoy the talent of the symphony orchestra, and also delight with the talent of some of the most renowned lyric artists. Going to this kind of shows is something you have to experience when you visit Verona, especially because it will fill you with emotion to watch the show, even if you are not a lover of lyrical opera.

This is definitely a plan that you can not miss if you go to Verona as a couple. It is a romantic dinner to enjoy the menu of one of the restaurants that are located on the banks of the Adige River.

Along the river there are different restaurants that have a wide gastronomic offer so you can choose what to dine. If you want to enjoy the Veronese cuisine at any time of the day, not necessarily at night, I recommend you to take one of the best gastronomic tours in Verona.

One of the most incredible visits you can do during the night is to go up to Castel San Pietro, a scenic spot that I would definitely recommend you to visit, especially at dusk to watch the sunset. With a fun walk and nice views, this is one of those activities in Verona that you can do with kids.

The castle square is the ideal place to take in some of the best views of the city. At night you can see the lights of Verona and at sunset you can enjoy the sunset. You can reach this castle by taking the funicular, which costs about two euros. The disadvantage of this way is that you can go up until 18:00.

You can also go on foot, going up some stairs. The detail with this way of going up is that you will have to be in good shape to not get tired. But you can also go up by car and reach the Castel. Upstairs there is a restaurant with a terrace where you can enjoy some drinks and dinner.

Details of interest

  • Price: The funicular can cost up to 2 euros per person. You will not have to pay anything to enjoy the views at the top of the place.

Strolling along this beautiful shopping street in Verona is one of the most fun things to do at night. You'll love the many stores that are open so late. It is especially a good place to shop in original stores and stroll among many tourists and locals.

Via Mazzini runs from the Arena to Piazza delle Erbe, so besides being considered a good place to shop and enjoy the nightlife, it is an ideal place to discover other nearby and equally interesting places in the city. You can't fail to indulge yourself during your evening stroll along this street.

Interesting details

  • Price: You don't have to pay to visit this place, but you will have to pay for the purchases you make in each of the stores.
  • Hours: You can go during the day if you want, but I recommend you to go during the night, so you can visit the stores and enjoy the different places.

7. Admire the Stone Bridge by moonlight

It is clear that the Ponte Pietra is one of the oldest and most interesting places in the city, which you have to visit, even if you go to Verona in 1 day. Moreover, it is an icon of the city because it comes from the Roman Verona. Now, visiting it during the night is an ideal plan if you want to see how the sun sets on the Veronese horizon.

Besides taking pictures of you on the stone bridge during the sunset moment, you have to know that this bridge is loaded with history, along which it has been destroyed many times. In fact, the last time was in April 1945, when the bridge was blown up by the Germans, leaving only the first arch on the right. By 1959, the bridge was reopened.

Continuing with the gastronomic plans to do at night in Verona, another thing you can do is to go and check out some of the best bars in the city. Before venturing into the city's nightlife, you should know that Verona has a very mature nightlife, unlike other neighboring cities such as Venice, which has a slightly more electrifying nightlife.

Verona, on the other hand, offers you wine tasting bars, annual wine fairs that are considered the biggest in Italy, and you can even find different live music offers also in bars and nightclubs, but this usually happens during the weekends.

Interesting details

  • Price: The prices to enjoy the nightlife in clubs, depends a lot on each place and its menu. Generally the entrance to the clubs is free, and what you have to pay is the consumption inside.
  • Hours: Generally the nightlife in bars and clubs starts in Verona around 22:30 and by midnight it is already crowded.
  • How to get there: You can get to each of the bars on foot or by private car. You can also take a night tour which is usually done on foot or by private bus.

9. Attend one of the shows at the Philharmonic Theater.

The Philharmonic Theater is a good place where you can enjoy music in every sense. You will be able to go to see high level shows that are very popular in Verona. It is a big theater, but it offers you the possibility to feel very close to the artist who is performing on stage.

One thing you should know is that before going to a concert at the Philharmonic Theater, you should make your reservation well in advance. You will be struck by the luxurious boxes and the opulence that permeates the whole place. This is one of those places that you should visit both day and night.

Of course the events and shows at the theater take place at night, that is why one of the best plans to do when the sun goes down is to enjoy the shows that this place offers. But before you go to enjoy them, I recommend you to check the available program.

One of the best places to see Verona in all its splendor at night is the Lamberti tower, which is about 84 meters high. It is in Piazza delle Erbe, and is listed as one of the tallest in Verona.

It will cost you about six euros to enter the Palazzo della Ragione and then you can climb to the top by the staircase, of course you also have the option of taking the elevator up. The reward for the climb is a wonderful view, a good night atmosphere and incredible weather at any time of the year.

You have to keep in mind the time it is open to the public, although you have time to go up until around 8:00 pm. This is one of those places you have to go to in the city, even if you visit Verona in 2 days or less.
