Shopping and street markets
OUT AND ABOUT IN THE LOCAL MARKETS
Market-day is one of Verona’s most enduring traditions, and this applies to the rest of its Province and Italy as well. For the tourist it is an irresistable attraction, for us Italians, however, it’s part and parcel of everyday life: a place where you meet friends, haggle over prices and chat in the local dialect.
The market isn’t just a place where you buy things cheaply: it’s also where you get in touch with tradition and make up for lost time. On market-days we all act as our parents did when we were young-we talk about what’s happening in the world and sometimes also stick our noses into other people’s business…
One often asks ” Where can I find a market today?” and ” Is there an antique market anywhere?
That is why we have included a list of all the markets in the file below. You can download it and take it with you or contactany of our local tourist boards.Markets and antiques markets in Verona and its district.
