Due Torri Hotel, Verona, Italy
In The City For Lovers
By Robin Roth on 25 August 2010 in Travel Articles
Verona Italy, is the city of romance, love, Romeo & Juliet, and the five star Due Torri Hotel.
I could have stepped right into the pages of Shakespeare’s legendary story of the Montague’s and the Capulet’s. The lobby is spectacular, equisitely antique and rich with romance and a long history.
Everything about this grand hotel screams romance. From the majestic arcades of the lobby dating back to the year 1300, the striking marble triptych, to the Belle Arti (a true museum worthy masterpiece), it seemed that I was thrown back into a far more idealistic time.
The lobby is fantasy room with frescoes of medieval essence, tremendous hand-sculpted marbles and priceless antique couches and chairs that I actually curled up on to enjoy leisurely conversation.
Do not miss this, even if you are not an enthusiastic Opera lover it isa most memorable experience being a part of this grand ancient arena.
Incidentally, the passionate story of Romeo and Juliet is actually a true story, told to Shakespeare and not made up by him. Do visit Juliet’s house. You can stand on her famous balcony, touch the breast of the famous gold statue for luck and even leave a love letter to be answered by her secretaries. It’s a totally, dreamy experience.
The rooms are large and inviting. Each room is unique with its very own character and refined furnishings which are also, fitted with all modern conveniences. The rooms are a mix of timeless elegance, Italian decor and advanced technology.
I had a blast touring many of these extraordinary rooms. Rooms are intimate and decorated in empire style, furnished with authentic period furniture with much attention to detail.
The walls are covered in precious tapestries in vibrant colors. The stunning Murano Glass Lamps and lovely bedspreads exude a style of by-gone eras. Everything about my room was comfortable and cozy including the bathrooms which was luxurious spacious and elegant, covered in precious Italian marble.
