Cheap flights to Verona

Verona AirportRivalling both Rome and Venice in the romance and history stakes, it won’t be long before you’re falling in love with Italy’s most elegant city, Verona. 

As romantic destinations go, Verona is hard to beat. After all, this was the setting for Romeo and Juliet, the most famous love story ever told. So, if it’s good enough for Shakespeare, you can be assured that it’ll be good enough for you. And while romance oozes from every corner of this elegant Italian city, Verona is more than just a Valentine’s Day destination.

With 2,000 years of history packed into Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and even its very own Roman amphitheatre, Verona is a culture buff’s dream. They don’t call it piccola Roma (little Rome) for nothing. Today, the home of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has changed little since the times of the Bard. Get into the spirit with a visit to Juliet’s house complete with that famous balcony – it is the real one, honest! Or come during the summer months and catch one of the many operas staged in that famous amphitheatre. An experience not to be missed!
