Finding budget accommodation in Verona is, in fact, not that difficult at it seems to be a city which has taken up the Bed&Breakfast formula more readily than other tourist locations in Italy. Verona is a fabulous city to visit - small but large enough to be interesting for a couple of days, picturesque and not to mention the scene of wonderful opera in the summer.
UK newspaper the Guardian has put together a ranking of Verona’s best B&Bs, which can still be a little pricey but it’s not an exhaustive list. The prices are per room, as well, and not per person. The list starts with the Nino Martini B&B which has three large rooms with a lovely garden. Prices are about 100 euros a night and you also get wi-fi internet access in the price.
The B&B ‘Alla Cattedrale’ is in the lucky position of finding itself in the same building as the Osteria al Duomo restaurant, where you can get a good meal. It has two suites at prices of about 70 euros a night. If you want something swanky, the Design Rooms have six chic bedrooms in minimalist style costing about 110 euros, where as going down in price you can find La Tana at 60 euros a head located between the train station and Verona’s historic centre (if you’re lucky your host will get you freshly baked cakes for breakfast).
Lo Stregatto is worth it just for its rooftop terrace, but the host is also very genial and rooms cost about 60 euros. If you want something different, the all’Opera B&B is located in a 14th century building in the centre of town and has one room in the tower turret, with a view over the city. It costs about 100 euros or whatever the going rate is when opera’s on (could it be the name?).
