Enjoying a principle position within the historical heart of Verona, Hotel Accademia offers a mix of traditional and modern elegance. Occupying the site of a former Academy, this resplendent property dates back as far as the 15th century with its interior sporting some of the original wooden beams adorning the arched ceilings. With a rich decor of traditional Italian tapestries of burgundy and gold leaf, the hotel is steeped in history, taking design influences not just from the surrounding architecture but from some of its most famous guests including 1940's stage actress Maria Callas and Verona-born, world-renowned tenor, Giovanni Zenatello.
Each of the 96 guest rooms are individually furnished and designed with simplistic yet stylish accents, some featuring Juliet balconies overlooking the surrounding buildings and Verona skyline.
With the more prominent sights of Verona just steps away, guests of Hotel Accademia will find Piazza Bra just around the corner and the arena within walking distance. With local shops including a spectacular vintage book store on the corner of Via Scala and upscale boutiques such as Chanel and Prada, those with a taste for window shopping will not be disappointed! The Hotel Accademia is also located in a well known restaurant district so there are plenty of culinary delights to explore for lunch and dinner with both Enoteca Segreta and Ciro Leone's Pizza (established 1924) absolute musts on your travels.
