Vista Palazzo Verona, Lario Hotel’s Fifth Property, to Debut This May

A new luxury hotel is set to open in Verona, Italy on May 8. The new Vista Palazzo Verona, occupying a 19th-century mansion in the heart of the city’s medieval Centro Storico (just a short stroll from the Roman amphitheater, Arena di Verona), will offer 16 guest accommodations (13 suites and three deluxe rooms). Beyond the guestrooms, amenities at the hotel include an indoor swimming pool (the only such hotel facility in Verona), a spa, library, wine tasting room, gym, penthouse-level restaurant and bar. Guests can also expect a rooftop terrace and what’s touted as Verona’s first spa suite, a 538-square-foot retreat for private wellness and rejuvenation pursuits. 

It will be the second Vista Palazzo branded property by Como, Italy-based, family-owned and -operated Lario Hotels. Like its Vista Palazzo Lago di Como predecessor, which opened in June 2018, Vista Palazzo Verona will blend traditional and contemporary style as created by Milan’s Maurizio Maggi Studio Arte. What does that mean? Five different locally quarried marbles in the bathrooms, lush bath towels and linen sheeting by Rivolta Carmignani, walk-in wood-lined closets in most rooms and soaking tubs in all the bathrooms.

At its pool, Vista Palazzo Verona claims a worldwide hotel first: An ancient Roman well embedded in a wall of the swimming pool. It was unearthed during the gut renovation of the building, which, decades prior to Lario Hotel’s acquisition, had morphed from a residential palace into a 32-room hotel. The Passera Family, who own Lario Hotels, decided to preserve the well and incorporate it into the pool. In the spa suite, guests can make use of a biosauna and multisensory shower.  

The hotel can assist with putting together bespoke experiences, such as exploring the wine country (home to Amarone and Valpolicella) surrounding the city, boating on Lake Garda or discovering some of nearby Venice’s most closely guarded secrets.

The Sottovoce restaurant will serve contemporary Italian fare nuanced by the local terroir’s wine and food products; complementary experiences the Infinity Bar and Wine Cave. Perched on the rooftop above, the Terrace will offer panoramic vistas for guests’ al fresco dining, imbibing or relaxing.
