Christmas and New Year’s Eve in one of the best hotels in Verona city centre: a magical experience
The welcoming and warm atmosphere, with so many decorations and themed events, make Verona, the city of the Hotel Colomba d’Oro, the perfect Christmas holiday destination. And to enjoy this kind of holiday as best you can, the best experience you can have at Christmas and New Year is staying in the welcoming luxury rooms of the Hotel Colomba d’Oro, the 4-star hotel near the Verona Arena.
This hotel near the Verona Arena with private garage has always welcomed its guests in a special environment, luxurious but full of warmth, which goes perfectly with the Christmas atmosphere. With its Christmas markets, and its themed exibitions and dining, this UNESCO heritage city is perfect for enjoying the festive season.
Not far from this romantic hotel – one of the best hotels in Verona city centre – Piazza dei Signori, also known as Piazza Dante, and the two adjacent courtyards, Cortile Mercato Vecchio and Cortile del Tribunale, are hosting once again one of the most popular Christmas events in Italy: the famous Christmas markets. Thanks to the partenership with the famous German “Christkindemarket” in Nuremberg, from 17 November to 26 December 2023 visitors will have the chance to enjoy a passeggiata surrounded by the scents and flavors of Bavaria, among more than 30 exhibitors full of gifts, decorations and food delicacies. And so Verona, which throughout the year is famous worldwide as the City of Love and is internationally famous for its summer Opera festival, also becomes a postcard of the joy of Christmas, among glittering shop windows, mulled wine and steaming hot chocolate, to be sipped while admiring the Verona Arena and the Christmas trees that light up the streets.
And that’s not all: right in front of the famous Verona Arena, which is already preparing to welcome the 101st Opera Festival, from 18 November 2023 to 14 January 2024, directly from museums and collections around the world the traditional “International Crib Festival” will be held: a unique exibition of nativity scenes crafted by artists and makers from all countries of the world: an exhibition-show in which music, lights and projections create an atmosphere that is hard to explain with words. And you can find this too just a few steps from the Hotel Colomba d’Oro, one of the best hotels in Verona city centre.
Furthermore, the popular ice skating rink will be set up in the pool in front of the former Austrian Arsenal, a few steps from the spectacular Castelvecchio Bridge (and therefore a few minutes from the Hotel Colomba d’Oro). This year the ice rink will remain until 8 January 2024, so in addition to the Christmas period it will also be an opportunity for celebration and fun on New Year’s Eve.
Treat yourself to an unforgettable stay a stone’s throw from the Verona Arena, in one of the best Verona city centre hotels: book now and prepare to experience a Christmas and New Year’s Eve to remember.
