WHERE TO STAY

PALAZZO VIC­TO­RIA

Elle (Canada) - - Escape -

Tucked just in­side of Verona’s an­cient Ro­man Porta Borsari gate is Palazzo Vic­to­ria, a 74-room ho­tel that started life as a 14th-cen­tury palace. The build­ing blends in with its old-city sur­rounds; all of its his­toric de­tails have been pre­served (which is re­quired by law in Italy), from orig­i­nal wood-beamed ceil­ings to 15th-cen­tury fres­coes—my room had a mod­ern-day ver­sion: a re­cessed blue-painted ceil­ing that was lit like the sky. The ho­tel’s Borsari 36 res­tau­rant has a par­tial glass floor so you can look at the con­served Ro­man ru­ins be­low; you can even go down and take a tour.
