Verona is surrounded by a crown of green hills known as the “Torricelle”. The trek we propose here includes the Torricelle of San Pietro and of San Felice, those closest to the historical centre and therefore the most suited for enjoying extraordinary views of the city from the outside.
Following sections of the ancient medieval, Renaissance or Austrian walls, the excursion crosses through the Veronetta district, coasts along the Giusti Gardens, ascends the alleys of San Giovanni in Valle up to the balcony of Castel San Pietro for an encompassing view of the theatre’s Roman remains. It then returns to the starting point via the side of the San Felice fortress, along the walls of San Zeno in Monte and up the so-called “holy stairway”.
We recommend you wear comfortable shoes. The trek lasts 3 hours.
