How the Verona Card works

The Verona Card is the official tourist card of the Verona Tourist Office. It gives you free access to many of the most popular sights and museums. It also allows you to use public transport in the city without having to buy separate tickets.

  • Free entry to the most popular sights
  • Free admission to numerous museums
  • Free use of public transport (bus)
  • Discounts on attractions, tours and sightseeing trips

Within 24 or 48 hours, you can make unrestricted use of a wide range of services as long as you stay within the validity period of the card.

The more sights you visit, the cheaper it is to use the Verona Card.

After purchase, you will receive a voucher that you can print out or save on your mobile phone. You then exchange this voucher for the actual Verona Card at the tourist information office. At the participating museums, it is enough to show the Verona Card to get free admission.

Who is the Verona Card suitable for?

The Verona Card is worthwhile for all travellers who use public transport and want to visit the amphitheatre and one or two other sights or museums. The Verona Card is also useful if you appreciate preferential admission to the amphitheatre without long queues.

The card makes travelling easier, as you no longer have to worry about separate tickets and passes for public transport.

How much does the Verona Card cost?

The price of the Verona Card depends on the period of validity.

  • 24 hours: 27 €
  • 48 hours: 32 €

The Verona Card for 48 hours is only slightly more expensive. But this card can be used for a full two days. Children under 8 years of age have free admission and therefore do not need their own Verona Card. In addition, many museums offer free or reduced admission for children under 14.
