Elegant handmade furnishings, precious textiles, and original frescoes give the rooms at Palazzo Victoria a rich, timeless quality. Everywhere else, Roman remains and 14th-century medieval walls share the space with sleek and contemporary Italian design.
Part museum, part luxurious hotel, Palazzo Victoria occupies a gloriously restored Renaissance-era palace in the heart of historic Verona, steps away from Juliet’s House, chic shopping, and the Roman Arena, where the city’s famous summer Opera Festival is held.
The suites are graciously decorated in traditional Veronese style, with soaring ceilings, locally sourced furnishings, and exquisite antiques. Walls are either dressed in beautiful silks or covered with dramatic frescoes, and most of the spacious marble-tiled bathrooms come with delightful Jacuzzis.
Stylish fabrics and soothing colors imbue all units with a touch of refinement, while modern amenities such as minibars and flat-screen TVs speak to the demands of today’s traveler.
Revolving around a vibrant show kitchen, the onsite Borsari 36 restaurant proposes a seasonally inspired menu crafted by Michelin star chef Carmine Calo. Expect heavenly homemade pasta dishes, sizzling steaks, and all sorts of delicious, reinvented Italian specialties.
Decidedly chic and contemporary, the space features a well-stocked bar and Plexiglas floor insertions allowing guests to admire the ancient Roman remains beneath the hotel. During the summer months, the restaurant opens onto a charming courtyard, perfect for idyllic alfresco meals.
Exposed stone walls and original wooden beams contrast nicely with the sleek decor in the modish Victoria Lounge e Café, where patrons can enjoy a traditional Italian aperitivo or indulge in exceptional local wines.
