The best lobby in Verona
Due Torri Hotel Baglioni: one of the most elegant meeting places in the heart of the city
The Due Torri Hotel Baglioni in Verona is situated in a medieval palace once known as the “Palazzo dell’Aquila”, which belonged to the prestigious Scaligeri family from the 14th century onwards. In 1674 it became an inn and in 1882 it was transformed into the Grand Hotel Imperiale. The hotel boasts an extremely long history and tradition of hospitality. Various famous personalities have slept here, including Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Wolfgang Goethe. But that is not all.
The hotel was also the setting for historic events such as the coronation in exile of Louis XVII, King of France, and the signing of the Treaty of Villafranca between Napoleon III, Victor Emanuel II, Archduke Ranieri and General Radetzky. It is a true page in the city’s history.
The Due Torri remains today the most prestigious hotel in the city, situated in the heart of Verona by the church of S. Anastasia, where original period furnishings and the more modern ones in the hall which now hosts the Brunello Lounge&Restaurant alternate in an evocative manner. Amongst the majestic three-hundred-year-old arcades of the lobby, there is an imposing marble triptych- a true masterpiece worthy of a museum- as well as frescoes with a medieval flavour, hand-sculpted marbles in warm tones and splendid antiques.
It is a unique setting starring the more modern Brunello Lounge&Restaurant area, with its creative reworking of regional and national gastronomic tradition. The lobby is thus transformed into an ideal location for aperitifs, cocktails or dinners with a special atmosphere: one of the most elegant meeting places in the heart of the city.
