Verona or Venice – Which Italian City Is Best?

Verona and Venice are two of the most popular cities in Italy. But which is best?

Venice is better than Verona, regardless of your interests. So, if you only have time to visit one of these Italian cities, I’d make it this one.

That’s not to say Verona isn’t great. I’ve visited Venice and Verona several times, and they are both fantastic. But Venice is an iconic travel destination with more to see, do, and experience.

With so many things to see and do, you’ll need more time in Venice than in Verona. I recommend spending three to five days in Venice, while you only need one or two days in Verona.

Of course, in an ideal world, you’d have time for both cities as, despite being close, they each offer something different.

You can travel from Venice to Verona (or vice versa) by train in under two hours. So from the UK I often fly into Venice and spend a couple of days here. Then, I grab the train to Verona and spend one night there before flying home the next day.

  1. Hi….spent a few days in Venice about 10 years ago. In 2 weeks I’ll have one night before my cruise leaves from Trieste. I have not been to Verona. Should I spend my one night in Verona, or go back to Venice?
