You will find our Verona airport car hire desk in the dedicated rentals area near the arrivals hall. Once your rental car has been collected, Verona is just 7.5 miles from the airport on either the A4 or the A22 motorways.
Only authorised vehicles are permitted to drive in Verona's historic centre where the streets are closely monitored by camera. As all of Verona's main tourist attractions are close together this should not stop you enjoying the city. Once away from the centre, roads are well-maintained but remember that Italian drivers are fast and not afraid to jostle for space! Roads in and around Verona become very congested on Summer weekends. Be aware that speed limits on Italian roads are varied according to weather conditions.
For street parking look out for blue and white lines and pay at the roadside meters. There are at least three large multistory car parks within the city centre.
When Verona was ruled by the Scala family they brought art to the city, amassing large collections that can still be enjoyed. Make sure to admire these works in the Civic Art Museum located in Scaliger Castle and the Canonical Museum, while beautiful frescoes can be found in the Church of Sant Anastasia. Children always enjoy exploring the ramparts at Scaliger Castle. A highlight of any visit to Verona has to be a tour of its enormous Roman arena, the third largest surviving coliseum in the world. For stunning views across the city and the Veneto countryside either take the lift or climb the 238 steps to the top of Lamberti's Tower. As you drive around the city in your rental vehicle you will see the remains of a Roman gate, Porta Borsari and the ornate Romanesque architecture of the Basilica di San Zeno.
