Dario's modern, bright, well-appointed apartment, in a quiet street off a main road, was comfortable for 3 of us, big enough for 5, if the two double beds were made use of. Its great advantages for us was it being only 5 minutes walk to the centre, 10 minutes to the Arena and 10 minutes to the station. The air-conditioning in two rooms was most welcome in a hot, early September. Fernando, who met us with the keys, was most helpful, and even drove us to the airport after our enjoyable stay in the beautiful city of Verona.
Dario's place was absolutely great! Super clean and comfortable. Very close to the arena and the main train station (from the airport, you can take the shuttle (6 EUR) and get off at the station and walk for ~10 min or take a cab (~25 EUR)). Communication with Fernando, Dario's friend who took care of us, was without any difficulty! Overall, a great experience. Highly recommended!
I just left Dario's apartment yesterday, and was very sad to go after staying there almost two weeks. I think the right word for the apartment is perfect. Communication with Dario before we got there was very simple, and everything went perfectly at check in. The location is perfect: just a few minutes walk from the Arena, and also walking distance to the station (we walked over with our bags when we arrived). It is in a lovely neighborhood where real Italians live and doesn't feel anywhere near as touristy as the historical center does. A fantastic supermarket, a great fruit and vegetable store, and delicious pizza are right on the same street. I needed to be able to park the company car easily, and I never had trouble finding a spot. The apartment itself is prettier than its pictures on Airbnb, and is very quiet, very spacious, full of light, and absolutely pristinely spotless. The beds are really comfortable, there is air conditioning if you need it, but the house stays cool even on very hot days. It was nice that they had left the staples needed in a kitchen: salt, olive oil, vinegar, coffee, tea, etc. because they are expensive to buy from scratch and you never finish them up on these shorter trips. Oh, the wi fi is very strong. I really feel like I should find something negative to say to make this review sound more believable, but it isn't easy. Hmm there is no washing machine and I could have done with a sharper knife. For the rest all the little details have been thought of and carefully handled. You will feel the wonderful relaxation of having everything you need and nothing else.
I moved to another apartment in the historical center after this one, and it is a nightmare. It wants to be quaint but it is just uncomfortable, no groceries anywhere near, no wi fi, run by someone who is jaded and tired of dealing with pesky tourists. I have no qualms saying that Dario's apartment just outside the historical center is a much nicer experience.
My mom and I stayed at Dario's apartment for 4 nights and it was perfect! Dario was fast to respond and Fernando was flexible to meet us and was very nice and helpful. The apartment is centrally located, close to the arenas and the train station, and a big supermarket is nearby, in addition to a delicious artisanal gelato store ;). The apartment is extremely well-equipped (complete kitchen gadgets) and thoughtfully furnished, it is spacious and made us feel at home right away. Our friends staying in a hotel were very jealous and ended up coming for dinner every night to enjoy home-made food and the big dining table :-). I highly recommend it to anyone!
No problems with Dario or his apartment whatsoever! We communicated via email, and Dario offered his cell phone number in case email wasn't enough.
He is an excellent host! I never actually met Dario, but he had his helper Fernando meet us, show us around the apartment, and make sure we understood how everything worked.
The apartment has a bed for two people, a smaller bed for one person, and a pull out couch bed. It is quite spacious for an apartment so close to the city center!
I was there with two colleagues from work for a conference. The location of Dario's apartment was perfect! Highly recommended.
