Is the Verona Card financially worth it?

There are good arguments for buying the Verona Card because it covers many attractive sights and museums. In addition, you can use public transport free of charge.

But is the Verona Card also worth it financially?

We answer this question in this section.

What does the Verona Card cost?

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

  • 24 hours: 20,- €
  • 48 hours: 25,- €

The price applies to people aged 14 and over. Children and young people under 14 do not need their own Verona Card because admission to many museums is either free or reduced.

Example calculation for 48 hours

The Verona Card is worth it from 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, the Verona Card is really worth it.

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,- €10,- €
Castelvecchio Museum0,- €6,- €
Verona Cathedral Complex with audio guide0,- €4,- €
Casa di Giulietta with Julia's balcony0,- €6,- €
La Torre dei Lamberti0,- €6,- €
Public transport ticket (2 days)0,- €10,- €
Total25,- € (purchase price)42,- €

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.

Arguments against the Verona Card

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