"Baicao Square", also called "Vanilla Square", sounds sweet and greasy. This is one of the lively places in the old city of Verona. It was used for civil arbitration and political assembly in Roman times. Nowadays, it is a living market during the day, with tourists like weaving, and at night it is a souvenir market with bright lights.
Most of the buildings around the square are from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The styles of each family are quite different. Venice has ruled here for more than 4 centuries. The "flying lion" stone pillars on site are witnesses to this history.
Piazza dei Piazza is a great place, a place you will pass many times when you go to Verona. You will eat there too, maybe more than once. There are many stalls for tourists, and those stalls occupy too much of the square. I have seen Baicao Square when there were no stalls. The scene was much more beautiful and beautiful than when there were stalls. But you will like it anyway.
Piazza del Pablo is the heart of Verona’s old town. There are many old buildings, including the towering Torre dei Lamberti (Torre dei Lamberti), the Palazzo Maffei (Palazzo Maffei) with a Baroque facade, and the Renaissance exterior walls. Painted Mazzanti Palace (Case Mazzanti), a typical medieval building merchant's house (Domus Mercatorum) and the ancient Verona Virgin's Fountain and so on. Now it is full of restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and various markets, which is very lively.
From the Google map, Baicao Square is like a spindle, long and thin, wide in the middle, and narrow at both ends. The white parasol is the symbol of Baicao Square. A handful of umbrellas are fully supported in the entire square. It is really comfortable to sit leisurely in such an outdoor in the slightly hot September. The center of the square is full of small stalls selling fruits, drinks, and tourist souvenirs. It's so lively.
After visiting Juliet’s former residence, Baicao Square is the next stop. Leisurely strolling around the market in the square, eating fruits and ice cream, and admiring the ancient architecture of the Renaissance, a very laid-back town. The red sightseeing car has also become a beautiful scenery line.
...the tacky market shouldn't be there, then this would be an amazing space in the heart of the city. With it, it was pretty in parts but overall a bit underwhelming.
Lovely quaint piazza only annoying that the folded down market items remain there and obscur3 the view at night
This is an iconic square in Verona and a must if you visit the city. I didn't like that all the square is full of souvenirs stalls and it really ruins the view.
This is the main piazza in Verona and is beautiful with a great vibe. Lots of shops, stalls, cafes and restaurants and in between the river and the Arena. A must visit when in Verona.
Several buildings of architectural finesse next to each other - a must see for those interested in the art of building.
