Public transport

With the Verona City Card you can use all ATV buses in the city network. Scan your Verona Card at the card reader when boarding the bus.

Travel up to 48 hours in the city area without having to buy a ticket.

However, the tourist card is not valid for the Aerobus airport bus or for journeys outside Verona.

The Verona Card is worth it

There are good arguments in favour of buying the Verona City Card, as it covers many attractive sights and museums. You can also use public transport free of charge.

But is the Verona Card also worth it financially?

Let's take a look.

Price of the Verona Card

The price of the City Card depends on the period of validity. The 48-hour tourist card is only slightly more expensive than the 24-hour card, but you can use the Verona Card for two full days.

  • 24 hours: 27,- €
  • 48 hours: 32,- €

The price is valid for people aged 14 and over. Children and young people under the age of 14 do not need their own Verona Tourist Card, as admission to many museums is either free or discounted.

How to get the best out of your Verona Card

The Verona Card is worthwhile from just one day if you visit the Arena and a museum and use public transport. However, if you spend two days in Verona and visit several museums and churches, you can make significant savings. Using the 48-hour card as an example, we would like to show that it is worthwhile:

AttractionPrice with Verona CardPrice without Verona Card
Amphitheatre Arena0,- €12,- €
Castelvecchio Museum0,- €9,- €
Verona Cathedral Complex with audio guide0,- €4,- €
Casa di Giulietta with Julia's balcony0,- €12,- €
La Torre dei Lamberti0,- €6,- €
Public transport ticket (2 days)0,- €10,- €
Total32,- € (purchase price)53,- €

With the Verona Card you can save a lot of money when you visit the amphitheatre, the numerous museums, towers and churches. If you then also use public transport, you will save a lot of money in any case.

Basically, it can be said that you get the most out of the City Card if you visit a lot of attractions in a short space of time. Concentrate above all on the expensive sights!

Please note that the Arena, Casa di Giulietta and other attractions are closed on Mondays. The tourist card is more worthwhile on other days.

Buy & collect Verona Card

The Verona Card is the official product of the Verona Tourist Office. You can buy the card locally at the tourist information office, at the Arena or in some museums.

Of course, online purchase is also possible. The card is available from various ticket providers:

Various payment methods are available there: Credit/debit card, Paypal, instant bank transfer etc.

After your purchase, you will receive a confirmation email with an online voucher. You can print it out or save it on your mobile phone. Redeem the voucher in Verona at the Tourist Information (address: Info Point IAT, Via Leoncino, 61 - Palazzo Barbieri).

The card is activated as soon as you use it at the first sight or on public transport.

If you have not yet collected the Verona Card, you can cancel the purchase free of charge up to one day before the visit.

Official Verona Card: 24 or 48 hours

Arguments against the Verona Card

The Verona Card is an attractive product. However, there are also arguments against buying it:

No city tour included: The Verona Card includes several museums and churches, but does not include sightseeing bus tours and city walks. You will only receive a small discount for such tours. For the Hop-on/hop-off bus there is a small discount.

Public transport not necessary: You can easily reach large parts of Verona on foot. If you don't want to use public transport, the Verona Card is a little less worthwhile.

Collection required: You must collect the tourist card in the city, even if you buy it online.

Conclusion: For whom is the Verona Card suitable?

The City Card may be suitable for you if several of the following statements apply:

  • You want to visit the amphitheatre (arena) and go past the queues.
  • You would like to visit the Casa di Giulietta and interesting museums and churches.
  • You would like to use public transport in Verona.
  • You want to get to know Verona intensively: to make a significant saving, it is advisable to make several visits per day.
