VERONA

Home / Italy/ Verona
Verona was once chosen by the Romans to rest their shields and spears, leaving behind an impressive cultural and architectural footprint from medieval palaces and fresco-festooned churches.

As described beautifully by Lonely Planet “Best known for its Shakespeare associations, Verona attracts a multinational gaggle of tourists to its pretty piazzas and knot of lanes, most in search of Romeo, Juliet and all that. But beyond the heart-shaped tack and Renaissance romance,

Verona is a bustling centre, its heart dominated by a mammoth, remarkably well-preserved 1st-century amphitheatre, the venue for the city's annual summer opera festival.

Add to that countless churches, a couple of architecturally fascinating bridges over the Adige, regional wine and food from the Veneto hinterland and some impressive art, and Verona shapes up as one of northern Italy's most attractive cities. And all this just a short hop from the shores of stunning Lake Garda.”

Our Verona Expert

The Opera in the Arena between June & August is something not to be missed! I recommend Verona as a year-round city break as there is plenty to do and see including mesmerising Lake Garda. Perfect for foodies also, many small traditional restaurants offering high-quality local cuisine, a gastronomical delight!
