Piazza dei Signori (Piazza Dante) Tours

Piazza dei Signori (Piazza Dante)
Historically, Piazza dei Signori (also known as Piazza Dante in honor of the poet’s statue in the square center) was the civic and political heart of Verona, and is still home to the Loggia del Consiglio, the former city hall. Lined by medieval palaces and elegant arches, this square is a vibrant local gathering place.
 
The Basics
Piazza dei Signori is dominated by the historic city hall as well as a number of palaces that were built by Verona’s powerful Scaligeri family, alongside the family’s favored Santa Maria Assunta church. At the far end of the square, the Arche Scaligere (Scaliger Tombs) hold the remains of some of the family’s most prominent members.
 
Visit Verona’s bustling Piazza dei Signori on a city walking or Segway tour that also includes skip-the-line entrance to the city’s famous Roman arena in Piazza Bra, as well as other highlights like Piazza delle Erbe and Torre dei Lamberti, the Duomo, Castelvecchio, and the Basilica di San Zeno Maggiore. Tours inspired by the tale of Romeo and Juliet are a popular option for exploring Verona, as are private tours that include a wine tasting.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Much of Piazza dei Signori is pedestrian, so it’s a perfect spot for families with young children to take a stroll.
  • The square has a number of cafés and restaurants where you can have a snack or meal either al fresco or inside.
  • If you join walking tour of Verona, choose comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.
  • The square is flat and well-paved, making it easy to navigate with a wheelchair or stroller.
 
How to Get There
Piazza dei Signori is in the heart of Verona’s historic center, and it’s an easy walk from the train station and most of the city’s most famous attractions. Verona is located about halfway between Venice and Milan in the Veneto region, and it’s an easy day trip from either city.
 
When to Get There
The square fills with students and locals each evening, and the families out for a stroll, street musicians, and overflowing sidewalk cafés and restaurants make for a particularly festive nighttime atmosphere.
 
The Rib Arch
The palaces around the square are joined by soaring arches; the neighboring Piazza delle Erbe market, on the other side of Arco della Costa, is said to contain a whale's rib that will fall on the first truly just person to pass beneath it. So far it remains firmly in place.
