Well worth the short walk up the hill. The views over Verona are just stunning. If you can't manage the short walk up the steps there is a funicular you can get to take you up

This is the place from where you can enjoy observing the whole city with its several towers and cathedrals. One of the places that left me the most vivid memories from the visit of the city!

When you get up top to Castel San Pietro (Saint Peter's Castle) it is not that straight forward to find the walk around the old city walls, but worth taking that route down. Walk down around to behind the castle and start walking down the...More

It is 300 metres and about 7 minutes to walk. I didn't count the steps though :-)
