The new Vista Palazzo Verona, occupying a 19th century mansion in the heart of the city’s medieval Centro Storico, just steps from Juliet’s fabled balcony and a short stroll from globally renown Roman amphitheater, Arena di Verona, offers 16 guest accommodations, 13 sumptuous suites and three deluxe rooms.
The opulently appointed Vista Palazzo Verona boasts a plethora of amenities that belie its intimate size, including: indoor swimming pool (the only such hotel facility in Verona); spa; library; wine tasting room; gym; penthouse level restaurant and bar; rooftop terrace; and Verona’s first spa suite, a 538 sq. ft. retreat for private wellness and rejuvenation pursuits.
It is the second Vista Palazzo branded five-star property by Como, Italy-based Lario Hotels, the family owned and operated company that has been delivering a very personalized Italian hospitality experience for more than a century. Like its Vista Palazzo Lago di Como predecessor, which opened to global acclaim in June 2018, Vista Palazzo Verona embraces guests with a singularly high degree of privacy in an elegantly comfortable residential setting.
An intriguing blend of traditional and contemporary style orchestrated by Milan’s Maurizio Maggi -Studio Arte showcases the best of Italian design and craftsmanship throughout the hotel–from the exquisite hand-hewn marquetry of the wood floors, the creative use of Dedar’s textile artistry and the incorporation of five different locally quarried marbles in the bathrooms, to the lush bath towels and pure linen sheeting by Rivolta Carmignani. Other decor highlights abound, such as expansive walk-in wood-lined closets in most of the rooms and suites and inviting soaking tubs in all the bathrooms.
The new Vista Palazzo Verona also features a worldwide hotel first, a dramatically lit ancient Roman well embedded in a wall of the swimming pool. It was unearthed during the gut renovation of the building, which, decades prior to Lario Hotel’s acquisition, had morphed from a residential palace into a 32-room hotel. The Passera Family, who own Lario Hotels, decided to preserve the well and incorporate it into the pool to give guests the unique opportunity to swim in the presence of such an age-age relic.
Vista Palazzo Verona’s level of service matches the extravagance of its amenities given the efficient expertise of the personal concierge. That expertise assures every guest impulse is instantly acted upon; be it on-site pampering in the private Spa Suite with its purifying sauna and multi-sensory shower or a bespoke memorable experience.
The latter include the likes of exploring the prolific wine country (home to Amarone and Valpolicella) surrounding the city, boating on the rustically scenic Lake Garda or discovering some of nearby Venice’s most closely guarded secrets.
Regardless of how Vista Palazzo Verona guests choose to spend their time, the stunning views of Verona’s enchanting skyline lure them to the top floor, where the jewel-box-like Sottovoce restaurant beckons. Serving contemporary Italian fare nuanced by the local terroir’s wine and food products, its gustatory charms are complemented by the indoor Infinity Bar and cozy Wine Cave. Perched on the rooftop above, the Terrace presents even more panoramic vistas for guests’ alfresco dining, imbibing or relaxing.
As with privacy being paramount, breathtaking views are a hallmark of Lario Hotels’ burgeoning Vista Palazzo brand, the first the company has created and launched. Prior to establishing the luxury brand with the Vista Palazzo Lago di Como, the company’s portfolio consisted of three highly-rated, distinctly different boutique properties in and near Como: the 50-room Albergo Terminus, overlooking the lake; the 14-room Posta Deign Hotel in Como’s quaint pedestrian-only medieval-walled old town; and the 53-room Villa Flori on its own waterside promontory between Como and nearby Cernobbio.
