Verona

Travel Guide
Veneto

Watch opera in an enormous amphitheater, sample local dishes at the market square and see why Shakespeare set his most famous love story in this medieval city.

Verona is an iconic city characterized by a rich culture, beautiful architecture and delicious local cuisine. It was in Verona that Shakespeare set his classic love story Romeo and Juliet and as you walk the city streets, you’ll find that romance is alive and well here.

Be welcomed to the city by the sprawling Piazza Bra. This plaza lies just inside the gates to Verona and is lined with restaurants, bars and major attractions. The monumental Arena di Verona, one of the largest amphitheaters in Italy, dominates the eastern side of the plaza. Come to the arena to watch a stunning opera performance and enjoy the superb acoustics.

Verona’s cobbled streets make the city ideal for exploring on foot. With few hills and level footpaths, it is accessible for people of all abilities, unlike many old cities in Italy. Some of the attractions to discover include the Castelvecchio Museum, an art collection housed within a historic castle. At the Verona Cathedral, admire architectural styles and attend a morning service conducted by Verona’s bishop.

Experience the lively atmosphere of Piazza delle Erbe, the central square that hosts a daily market. Pick out some local produce from the stalls or dine-in at one of the restaurants that line the square. Verona is renowned for its northern Italian cuisine, which is often based on rice. Try a hearty risotto made with local mushrooms and truffles.

Visit Juliet’s House to see where Shakespeare set his historic play. Re-enact famous scenes with your loved one from Juliet’s balcony and snap some photographs as a keepsake.

Connected to Milan by rail and bus, Verona is easily accessible. Two airports also service the city. Once in town, you’ll find most attractions within walking distance, but an affordable bus system will take you farther afield. After you discover Verona’s vibrant culture and picturesque streets, you are sure to fall in love with this romantic Italian city.
