Verona

Located in the Veneto region of northern Italy, the picturesque city of Verona is nothing if not romantic. It is no surprise that Shakespeare chose this fairytale city as the setting for his great romance, ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Visitors flock here to visit Juliet’s balcony and to experience the surreal atmosphere of this elegant city. Despite its appeal, Verona hosts far fewer visitors than neighbouring Venice, making it a more relaxed place to visit. The city’s remarkably well-preserved architecture is crowned by its 2000-year-old Roman Arena, a wonderful venue for the city’s summer Opera Festival. Quaint narrow cobbled streets are strewn with baroque facades, handsome palazzi and museums brimming with historical and artistic artefacts. Don’t miss the chance to indulge in the town’s array of upmarket shops and fine restaurants, which serve up some of Italy’s finest culinary delights.
