Overview

If Romeo and Juliet had lived happily ever after, Relais Fra Lorenzo is the kind of place they would have made their home. Named after Friar Laurence (‘Fra Lorenzo’ in Italian) - the man who did everything he could to bring the two lovers together Shakespeare’s tragic romance - this 10-room boutique hotel is just 20 minutes’ walk from Verona.

 

A former convent with elegant gardens with ancient olive trees, you can sip a glass of vintage Valpolicella or a crisp Soave by the pool as you gaze out over Verona’s skyline.

 

Stretch your legs with stroll to the city to see an opera in the 1st-century Roman amphitheatre, the picturesque Juliet balcony and to see the statues, frescoes and beautiful bridges of the 14th-century Museo di Castelvecchio.

 

Back at the hotel, you can relax in your room, decorated with Rococo decor and with wood-beamed ceilings, then wake up to a delicious buffet breakfast on the charming garden terrace.

Rooms

All 10 rooms are charming, but the deluxe and executive rooms have views over Verona.

Dining

The hotel offers a good buffet breakfast served in the garden overlooking Verona and can recommend the best places in town for dinner.
