VERONA BLACK BOOK

Elle (Canada) - - Escape -

Alice Lu­nardi is the de­signer be­hind quirky fash­ion brand Laz­zari (think a skirt with shark mouths à la Jaws for pock­ets), which was founded in Verona more than 20 years ago by her par­ents. “The quin­tes­sen­tial beauty of Verona is see­ing the city from its bridges and walk­ing the streets,” she says. GET GELATO “San Zeno mar­ket is the most beau­ti­ful flea mar­ket. It takes place the third Sun­day of ev­ery month. In the same area, you can also find the best ice cream at Zeno Gelato e Cioccolato.” TAKE A WALK “Giar­dini Giusti is an amaz­ing Ital­ian gar­den— one of Verona’s most pre­cious hid­den gems. My favourite spot here is the neo­clas­si­cal-style villa in­side the park.”

STORM THE CASTLE “Castelvec­chio is a beau­ti­ful old castle dat­ing from the 14th cen­tury. The mu­seum in­side was re­stored by the fa­mous Ital­ian ar­chi­tect Carlo Scarpa.” BUY A DRESS “Jeans are okay in the day­time, but you need a cute dress and some

fancy shoes for evening.” (From $70, laz­zar­i­on­line.com)
