Verona is located along the Adige River in north central Italy. This delightful city is a major tourist destination for its artistic heritage — many visitors will remember Verona as the home of the star-crossed lovers in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The scenic surrounding farmland and fantastic architecture of this UNESCO World Heritage Site make running in Verona a special treat. If you’d like to have an in-person guided running experience in Verona, we highly recommend our friends at Go! Running Tours.
We’ve mapped an ~8 km “Runseeing” Tour that shows off the architecture of Old Town and the riverfront. There are plenty of great options around the Lungadige of the Adige River. Some of the best places to run in Verona are multi-use paths such as the Passeggiata Montorio Ferrazze San Martino, the Canale Biffis, and the Ciclabile del Prongo.
The main part of Verona is extremely walkable, but there’s also a fantastic bus service connecting the city and surrounding suburbs.
