Verona is well-known for being the city of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Putting aside their sad tale, Verona itself is truly a place to fall in love with. It’s a city with some of the most well-preserved and impressive architecture from both Roman and later periods, reflecting its long-standing importance in Italian history. Home to many fashionable shops, and also a lovely place to just sit and have a coffee, as you watch the river and people flow by.
Verona is full of cafes and restaurants, offering both north Italian and world cuisine. Italians take their food very seriously, and places such as Al’ Duomo and Al Carro Armato manage to provide excellent traditional food and wine at good value. A Veronese wine, such as Bardolino or Valpolicella, is something you must try when in this area. Later in the night, Verona has some very swanky nightclubs for you to visit, or a lot of smaller, cosier places to have a drink if you don’t feel like dancing.
This Italian city is packed full of memorable sights. One of the oldest and most impressive is the massive Roman amphitheatre, still in use today for public events, theatre and opera performances. There are many cathedrals and churches, some dating from the medieval period, the best of which is the Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore with carvings and paintings inside. Those who are feeling romantic should take a trip to Juliet’s House, visited by lovers from all over the world who leave their personal messages on the walls.
