Verona Panoramic Terrace

During my recent visit to Verona, I had the opportunity to see the city from above by climbing the terrace of Palazzo Maffei.

Palazzo Maffei, with its historic structure and impressive architecture, stands nobly in the city centre, offering unique views over Piazza delle Erbe and Verona’s colourful rooftops. The terrace is accessible daily, whether you choose to climb the stairs or take the lift, putting you in direct contact with the heart of the city.

Looking down on the city, you’ll see a panorama that combines history with modernity, centuries-old churches with contemporary architecture. From the terrace of Palazzo Maffei, Verona is revealed in all its splendour, a living picture that blends the past with the present.

The city appears in all its splendour, with its colourful roofs, churches and monuments. It’s an experience I recommend to anyone visiting Verona.

Here are some tips for visiting the Palazzo Maffei terrace:


    1. To reach the Palazzo Maffei terrace, visitors can choose to climb the spiral staircase of the palace or use the lift, both of which offer a special experience.
    2. Access to the terrace is possible with the purchase of a ticket, which at the time of our visit was 4 euros per person (only to visit the terrace) and 15 euros including the visit to the museum.
    3. Museum prices may vary depending on events and temporary exhibitions.
    4. The best time to visit this terrace is at sunset, when the light is best, and if you want to avoid the crowds, it’s best to go early in the morning or late in the evening.
