About
It's no wonder that this is one of the most historic and picturesque squares in Italy: in antiquity, it served as a Roman forum; today, it contains many historic buildings, sculptures with a popular and colorful market overflowing with fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Heart of the city
    The best piazza to see and explore in Verona. With stunning buildings surrounding square it’s really awesome to see, inside square there is a variety of market stalls (not the best to buy things) including a nice water fountain and some statues. Around the perimeter of square are many restaurants that have nice quality food and variety had lunch and dinner in Square during my few days in Verona. Try to experience Piazza in the day and night as you get a great contrast with square lit up at night.

    Great market. Busy little piazza.
    One of the busiest piazzas with it's market stalls, cafes and restaurants. It's definitely the hub of the city. Only a two minute walk from Juliets balcony. Great place to sit and people watch. Restaurants are a lot more expensive here, but you have great views. The markets sell all sort of goods and the prices are not too bad. We loved it.

    Historic Market Square
    Piazza delle Erbe is a bustling historic market square dating back to the Romans, is located in the historic centre of Verona a beautiful and underrated city. The name translates into "square of herbs" It is rich in history and architecture. When we visited there was a small and interesting market. The square is surroundedby bars and restaurants. I enjoyed sitting at one, with a glass of wine, and watching the world go by.

    The best Piazza in Verona
    The best Piazza in Verona. Take the trip up the Lamberti Tower, elevator or walk. Free to 1 Euro. The art museum at the north end is fantastic. There are many cafe's to sip wine and or eat. Very Italian!

    Lovely Piazza spoiled a little by the market stalls. Formerly site of the Roman Forum.
    One of several lovely Piazzas in the middle of Verona. This one is surrounded by some lovely buildings including the Casa Mazzanti, with its frescoed facade, the Palazzo Maffei and a number of others. There is a great restaurant in the bottom of Palazzo Maffei surprising called Restaurant Maffei. There are some interesting attractions in the Piazza including a fountain and a column with a statue of a lion. I thought the market stalls detracted from the scene.

    Lovely piazza full of fountain, statue, ancient buildings surrounded by restaurants and market vendors
    This is a great natural "meet up" point with our friends. Most days many souvenir stalls were present, but on Sunday, they removed them all. That is when we really came to admire all the amazing landmarks here. Can't miss the imposing Torre dei Lamberti and the frescoed Mazzanti Houses. The tall white marble column with Saint Mark's Lion. There is a fountain with the Madonna Verona (dating to 380 AD). We browsed through the market, got some inexpensive leather goods and small souvenirs. Also took in some dinners here, lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, and gelato shops. A great way to spend some time here. Can always find shade too.

As others have mentioned, this square is right in the thick of Verona's old town so you can't miss it. During the day it is bustling with tourists at the bars and shops, or queueing to see "the" balcony.

At night there is a brightly lit market, with some well placed uplights on the surrounding buildings that make this place feel quintessentially Italian.

Gelateria Amarino at the Piazza delle Erbe is super. In the cones, the gelato is shaped like a beautiful flower. And the gelato is super yummy.Really good and the staff speak English and are friendly. Highly recommended

Not far from Juliet’s balcony, a good place to find food after visiting. Many stalls selling food & produce, as well as numerous restaurants. We bought delicious pizza slices from a deli and strawberries from one of the market stalls, and ate in the marketplace. There were many stalls selling tasteful souvenirs such as ceramic items, murano glass and summer clothing. The buildings and monuments in the square were beautiful and well worth photographing. The highlight of our trip to Verona!

Had a late breakfast here in this square, at a restaurant where we could just sit and people-watch. ha. Relaxing, and entertaining. Bustling with activity in Late May, Early June. Very short walk from the Arena and from the Romeo/Juliet site. Don't miss.

The most striking thing about visiting Verona, to me, was the very small sleepy town empty vibe, in the morning, contrasted to the overcrowded bustling vibe, in the afternoon. Piazza Erbe seems to be the center of all the activities, with all the main attractions emanating from here. This Piazza was the spot for the ancient roman forum and it’s a huge market style gathering place. I highly recommend stopping through here!

Everyone meets in the PIAZZA and Piazza delle Erba accentuates the need for people to be around people. Although there may be no words being exchanged, locals and tourists feel the warmth around them and feel safe as if strolling in their backyards..Indeed, Piazza delle Erbe is very private but it is free for all.With no traffic and a magnificent view of the ancient Roman Arena, everyone makes this piazza their own backyard to meet, chat, and let life go by as slow as possible. We sat there at night, watching people go by, enjoying their casual presence, and sipping our favorite drinks, spritz and negroni. Life is good. Better when you sit in an Italian Piazza. Best when you are sitting in Piazza delle Erbe in Verona.

Piazza delle Erbe is the oldest square in Verona. It was for centuries the fulcrum of the social, economic and religious life of the city. What is interesting Piazza delle Erbe was built on the remains of the ancient Roman forum that included a Capitol, Temples and Baths, connected by an arcade that housed many stores. Nowadays this Square really looks spectacular. There are many nice restaurants when you can sit down and admire beautiful architecture.
