For those who aren’t content with silly trinkets from fast-talking vendors in the Piazza delle Erbe, we’ve compiled a list of 10 unique souvenirs you can get in Verona. Some come from fantastic artisans, some from wonderfully creative places that are worth a visit just for the fun of browsing; all are distinctly Veronese, so you’ll have a perfect little reminder of where you’ve been.

Hidden treasures from the San Zeno Flea Market


André Breton says that flea markets bring him to “an almost forbidden world of sudden parallels, petrifying coincidences, and reflexes.” That Surrealist poet would have found himself in heaven at the big antiques market that covers Piazza San Zeno every Sunday. You’ll get to pick through truly everything, from old furniture to books, jewelry, clothing and more.

Local delicacies from Antica Salumeria G. Albertini

Even for Italy, this little salumeria has got a crazy amount of old-world charm. Located two skips away from the Piazza dei Signori, this is a great place for picking up a sandwich for lunch, made to order on the spot with their salumi and cheeses. It’s also the perfect place in the city for food lovers to pick up a little something to remember the city by — that is, if you can keep yourself from devouring it on the spot.

Confetteria Bomboniere Filarmonica

Just getting a look at the window display stuffed full of so many types of fantastic chocolates, candies and biscuits, you’ll start to feel like a child again. This is a great place to pick up some sweets that were truly made in Verona to bring home as a gift or just to indulge your inner 5 year old.
