In fair Verona...

Verona-Italy-travel-guide.jpg

Verona is the setting of arguably the world’s greatest romance and what's not to love? 

The city itself takes centre stage surrounded by hills – it’s fitting for a place that’s interlinked with the works of Shakespeare.

Start by enjoying the beauty of the Piazza Bra, one of the largest squares in Europe. It functions as a kind of arrival hall before you enter the centre of the city and is full of beautiful architecture and buildings each with their own story to tell. 

We all know the romance of Romeo and Juliet, and although Shakespeare never visited Verona and the characters probably didn’t exist, there is a 13th century building where Juliet Capulet is said to have lived. The Capello family for many years owned the house and their similar name has turned a balcony that overlooks the courtyard into ‘Juliet’s balcony’.

Another must see is the iconic 15,000 seat Verona Arena. The Roman amphitheatre dates back 2,000 years and is now a music and performance space which has hosted world-famous acts such as Adele, Paul McCartney and Pavarotti.

Verona is also in easy reach of some of the beautiful resorts around Lake Garda, such as Sirmione on the southern shore. Ancient Roman buildings dominate the scenery along with a 13th century castle which is a peaceful and welcome escape from the heat of the city. Also recommended is the town of Garda, which has quaint streets and views of the lake.
