Hotel Accademia

Alt tag for the hotel accademia The Hotel Accademia is in the center of Verona. Ideally situated on the Via Mazzini, the hotel is in the heart of the exclusive shopping area, conveniently positioned between Piazza Brà and the Arena. Nearby, you can browse the trendy Piazza delle Erbe and visit Juliet's House, with its legendary balcony.

The hotel has an historic background, having been founded by Giovanni Zenatello (1876-1949), a well-known impresario who promoted a grand opera event at the Verona Arena to celebrate Giuseppe Verdi’s birth. The Arena was transformed into the greatest open-air opera theater in the world. Today, the incredible magic of the opera season at the Arena recurs every summer, bringing to Verona some 500,000 opera enthusiasts who marvel at the stage. Zenatello lived much of his life at the Accademia Hotel and eventually purchased it. The hotel still belongs to the Zenatello family today.

Hotel Cristallo

Hotel Cristallo The Walch Family has hosted many appreciative guests in this sun filled in. In the heart of bilingual South Tyrol, don’t be surprised to hear German, Italian, and English all spoken here.

After a day on the trails, relax in the pool and wellness center or enjoy a drink at the hotel’s bar. Enjoy the unique flavors in the hotel restaurant, which prides itself on fresh, local, and healthy ingredients that combine Tyrolean country cuisine with light Italian dishes into a taste that blends the two cultures.
