Shopping in Verona ☆☆

Window-shop with the best: A primer on the best shopping streets of Verona

Unlike in Venice, most of the people walking Verona's boutique-lined pedestrian streets are locals, not tourists.

Come to Verona to spend some time doing what the locals do, shopping and stopping in any of the myriad cafes and pasticcerie.

Despite Verona's acknowledgement of the tourism that supplements its economy (unlike Venice, Verona does not live for tourism alone and it shows), there is only the most predictable souvenirs to be found in the tourist trinket market.

Shopping is mostly for the Veronesi, and upscale clothing and accessories boutiques line the two most fashionable shopping streets, Via Mazzini (connecting the Arena and the Piazza delle Erbe) and Via Cappello, heading southeast from the piazza and past Juliet's House.

There's also Corso Borsari to check out, and Corso Sant'Anastasia (heading west and east, respectively, out of the Piazza delle Erbe), the latter having a concentration of interesting antiques stores.
