Although the Veneto region is known for its handsome piazzas, I think that this main one in Verona is rather special and is a pretty decent runner up when compared to the famous piazza that can be found in nearby Venice. Clearly, the Venetians has an influence here, as documented by the pillar which has the lion standing on it. Other features of this piazza include the statue of Emmanuel II which has been here since the nineteenth century. Furthermore, many important local buildings frame this piazza, including the Palazzo della Gran Guardia, the Palazzo Barbieri and the town hall. The Roman Arena and Scaligeri arch and tombs are not far away either. These days, the focus on power and affluence is more easily conveyed through the posh cafes and eateries which grace the piazza. Clearly it’s the site to people watch, lounge around and have a nice coffee break!!

Piazza Brà è il nome della piazza centrale e più grande della città su cui affaccia l'Arena. Nel periodo della dominazione veneta la Bra fu detta anche Piaza d’arme, perché le milizie vi svolgevano esercitazioni.
