PALAZZO VICTORIA VERONA, ITALY
THE HISTORIC CITY OF VERONA MAKES FOR THE PERFECT FOODIE MINI- MOON
Stay at Palazzo Victoria, the medieval palace with everything at its fingertips: ancient sites in all directions, the vast 30 AD arena just a five-minute stroll away and, most importantly, delicious food. At the hotel’s courtyard restaurant, Borsari 36, you’ll sample the region’s finest produce, such as Vialone Nano risotto and wines from hilly Valpolicella. Try the seriously Italian tiramisu, which comes served in a classic stovetop espresso maker.

The nearby Ristorante 12 Apostoli is also one of Verona’s fine-dining musts. Its food is utterly beautiful, with dishes such as three-cheese tortello arriving with herbs pressed perfectly between layers of pasta, like flowers between glass. Rest assured, it tastes as good as it looks. And if you’re after a cheap lunch, there’s nowhere better than La Bottega della Gina, where eight types of tortellini are freshly made each day. Order the tortelloni degustazione – one of each for €8 total. That way, you can try them all!
