We had a wunderfull time B&B Torricelli. Cosyness, great breakfast and a natural and welcome environment on real short distance (8 minutes from Verone City).
We had a good room with a good bed, private bathroom. Take the road from Verona. The bar 100 meters nextdoor is also a nice place for a drink or streetfood.
This is just a fantastic place. 10 minutes from Verona, the B&B is situated in a beautiful countryside scene. The host is a lovely lady who prepares all food by herself, with super-fresh ingredients from her own garden. We arrived in the evening and she prepared a wonderful meal just for us in an hour. Breakfast is also stunning, and the room is perfect: very nice atmosphere and perfectly clean. It's also very nice to be so close to the wonderful Verona in such a quiet place. Great to come back after a long day of wandering throughout the city. Go there!
We stayed for 3 nights with our 2 little children. Fiorella, the host of the property is the good soul of this place and extremely passionate about the well-being of her guests. We arrived at 20:30 and sh prepared hot mil for the children, got us one of her self made bottles of wine and made us feel really welcome!
Almost all the food served at breakfast was hand-made with products from the agriturismo, just delicious!
What we experienced:
- we stayed in a 2 bedroom 'suite' with (1 for our children, 1 for us) one bathroom. It was decorated with a lots of unique pictures, items etc. (do not expect the modern, love the traditional)
- Rooms were perfectly clean
- Gooserunning around the property; Chicken and dogs behind the fence
- Beautiful herbes garden
- Home-made jams served and sold are delicious
- 7min by car to the old Verona
Thanks for 2 nice days!

Verona can be hot, very expensive and crowded during the opera season. Agriturismo alle Torricelle, tucked away from the city (15 min. by car), proved to be a great haven at a very decent price.
I hope that Fiorella, the host, will not take offence if I describe her as a wonderful Italian "mamma": she welcomed us with coffee and homemade cakes and took good care of us, from the excellent breakfasts (homemade cakes, homemade bread, eggs from their hens...) to her sound advices on what to do in Verona before the opera (her advice: have a light dinner; if you eat too much, with the heat of the stone seats, you can get sick), to where to park for free in the city, and some good tips at places to visit around Verona that were not mentioned in our guidebook (all this in a mix of Italian and English that I complemented with my native Spanish)
The building is quite new, or very recently renovated. Our room was very quiet, fresh, immaculately clean, decorated in an old charming style. Since we booked very late, we got one of the smallest rooms, with a shared bathroom (with only one other room), but we were very happy with it.
Just a note to city travellers: this is a farm guest house, not a hotel, do not expect TV, air conditioning, or private phone in the room... anyway you won't need them! There are plenty of stars to look at while shipping the great Italian wine you bought in the city, and you can sleep with an open window, enjoying the cool countriside breeze... (there are good mosquito nets in the windows)
We've stayed 2 days at this B&B and they were wonderful. The room was big and confortable with the cocks reminding us that we had to wake up. La signora Fiorella made us an excellent breakfast.
The only bad thing is that we don't drive, but Fiorella told us that there were buses, but taxis fit better in our timetable.
If you visit, don't miss her fig cake.
