      Mercatini di Santa Lucia

      Traditional stalls are set up in Piazza Bra each year, a few days before Santa Lucia, which sell sweets, gifts and toys. The night between the 12th and 13th December, Veronese children wait for Santa Lucia who comes riding a donkey and brings them games, sweets and … coal to the naughty children. Traditionally parents take their children to Piazza Bra to admire the Santa Lucia stalls and the lit up Comet Star which “falls” from the Arena onto the Piazza, created by the architect Olivieri.
      In the archways of the Arena each year there is an International Christmas Crib Exhibition, a collection of nativity scenes from all over the world.

      Piazza Brà

      Piazza Bra, the “Drawing room of Verona”, is the largest and most important piazza in the city even because it lies around the Arena. Piazza Brà was born by chance, after a long urban transformation and only after the paving of the “Liston” with large pink marble slabs from the Valpolicella. The Piazza has become the meeting place and promenading of the Veronese.

      Piazza dei Signori or Piazza Dante

      A beautiful traditional meeting place for centuries is Piazza dei Signori. Buildings from different architectural periods surround the square forming a harmonious blend, creating an original “unicum”.
      Dante’s statue in the centre of the piazza, recalls the poet’s stay in Verona during his first exile, hosted by Cangrande della Scala.
