About Relais Fra Lorenzo
Relais Fra Lorenzo is well located just a few minutes walk from the old town centre of Verona. Immersed in the silence of an ancient olive tree garden and set in the peace and tranquillity of an unspoilt environment, Relais Fra Lorenzo is the ideal place for a unique and unforgettable stay.
Among these centuries-old olive trees in the ancient and exquisite the friar stopped to meditate, gazing out over the enchanted view of the town.
Steeped in history and synonymous with romance, the UNESCO World Heritage city of Verona is known as the town of love and famously the setting of Romeo and Juliet. You too will fall in love with this charming boutique hotel. Perched high above the town, with amazing panoramic views, Relais Fra Lorenzo is named after a legendary Franciscan friar who gathered curative herbs in the surrounding hills – and had a pivotal role in the fictional lovers’ fate.
Set among peaceful olive groves, behind its elegant wrought-iron gates you’ll find an immaculate lawn leading up to an exquisitely restored period building. Interiors retain many original features, with wood-beamed ceilings and antique furniture in guest rooms. One of the high points of the hotel is the tranquil swimming pool in the gardens, where you can float serenely while gazing at the panoramic vista beyond.
Relais Fra Lorenzo offers a delightful retreat away from all the bustle of the town, yet is still within walking distance of the many monuments, museums and architectural gems for which Verona is famed. You’ll soon see why the hotel boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and a host of perfect scores on the site too, and has many guests returning year after year.
Each year, Verona hosts each year a Nuremberg Christmas Market in the central Piazza dei Signori. The German styled market will have all the traditional huts, elegantly illuminated and decorated selling typical food, handicrafts, Christmas tree decorations, cribs and serving specialities such as mulled wine, Stollen and Lebkuchen cakes, bratwurst and more.
