When you open the doors of your house to guests, you try to do anything to make them feel welcomed and pampered as at home and offer an experience that is much more than just a memory: exactly what happens every day at the Balcone di Giulietta.
That’s why we carefully selected some of the most engaging experiences to do in Verona: the most significant attractions and the most exciting adventures, surrounded by art and beauty, flavors and crafts, traditions and outdoor life.
Have you ever dreamed to have a museum all to yourself? It is something that you can enjoy at the Casa Museo Palazzo Maffei, in downtown Piazza delle Erbe, with a private after-hours tour among more than 500 works (from Picasso to De Chirico, from Magritte to Fontana, Burri and Manzoni) belonging to the Carlon collection, in a journey between modern and ancient art, painting, sculpture and architecture.
Can't you resist the lure of old libraries? Then you should lose yourself in the halls of the Biblioteca Capitolare: housed in the complex of the Verona Cathedral and considered the world’s oldest library in continuous function, thanks to a private guided tour you’ll admire its valuable manuscripts.
If, in addition to culture, you want to focus on good food and good wine, you have plenty of options: a wine tasting with the “decanterino”, a Murano glass innovative tool that shortens waiting times for wine oxygenation offering a multisensory experience that involves all five senses; a sourdough workshop, to figure out the secrets of the ingredient that makes pizza and bread so tasty and fragrant; or a workshop with an-ice-cream master to create a flavor tailored to your palate; or a romantic dinner in the Sala Futurista of the restaurant Olivo 1939: the pictorial cycle by well-known Futurist artists Albino Siviero Verossì and Amos Ernesto Tomba and the verses by poet Giuseppe Barni pay homage to Romeo and Juliet’s love affair creating a romantic, charming setting.
For lovers of good wine we selected the best wineries in the area: you can opt for a visit and tasting in the cellar at the Cantine Canoso, in Monteforte d'Alpone, wine producers since 1876, or at Sartori, in Valpolicella, a four-generation old winery, at the Cantine Masi (with properties in Valpolicella, Valdobbiadene and Lake Garda), at the estate of Villa Mosconi Bertani, in Valpolicella, in business since 1800, at the Cantina Ottella, in Peschiera del Garda, winemakers for four generations, as well as at the Birrificio Artigianale B20, a wine and beer producer in Caorle.
