The setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, the city of Verona is as enchanting as the timeless tale and is a more relaxed option than Venice which is only an hour away. A visit in the summer months opens up a variety of opportunities, especially that of the opera season. The town is also an excellent locale for those wishing to visit Lake Garda, and it’s all the more exciting with the Verona Airport
conveniently located 12km southwest of the city.
Juliet’s House and the Arena are attractions that dominate the tourist scene in Verona. The Arena
is especially ideal in the summer months when it serves as the stage for opera season. Juliet’s House draws droves of travelers to revel in the story of love and commemorate the love of their own. Of course it isn’t the actual house, but it’s certainly better than not having one. For those looking to pay homage to Romeo, a private home a couple streets over has been designated as his. Verona Cathedral, Giardino Giusti, and the art-filled Castelvecchio are but a few more of the wonders to be explored here. From snapshot sites to timeless wonders and within easy reach of many exciting Italian destinations, Verona is a winning choice for a getaway.
