Verona is synonymous with the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare’s play being set in Verona brought the city much of its good fortune: today, it continues to attract many a romantic tourist, with streams of curious onlookers eager to visit Juliet’s famous balcony and touch the breast of her statue, in the hopes it will bring them luck in (it goes without saying) love.
The city is rich in beauty: infinite signs of its historical, cultural and artistic heritage are revealed among its uniquely charming alleyways and squares.
The seductive flavours of Verona’s traditional cuisine and more than 2,000 years of history encompassed in just over 200 square kilometres make it an unmissable destination, well worth several days of exciting exploration.
What to visit
Starting with Verona’s historical symbols: The Roman Amphitheatre, known as the Verona Arena, is the icon of the city alongside Romeo and Juliet. Built around the 1st century, its solid and imposing structure hosted gladiator fights. Its name derives from the sand on which they fought, and it could accommodate up to 30,000 spectators.
Then we have Verona’s fortresses: the second must-see is Castelvecchio in Verona, a fortress built for the self-defence of Cangrande II della Scala. Today, it houses a museum hosting 20 masterpieces, including Mantegna’s The Holy Family, Rubens’ Portrait of a Woman and Bellini’s Penitent Saint Jerome.
Verona’s theatres and their museums are totally unmissable, especially the Teatro Romano, a 1st-century-BC open-air theatre. One of the best preserved in northern Italy, it houses the city’s homonymous archaeological museum and a theatre, home to the Verona Summer Theatre.
Tour around Verona’s squares: you cannot truly appreciate this iconic city without experiencing Piazza Brà in Verona, one of the largest squares in Europe. Dominated by the Arena and numerous historic buildings, it is a meeting point for chatting, walking and enjoying aperitifs. The beautiful liston runs along it, paved in pink Valpolicella marble.
