Venerable Verona

Verona is famous around the world as the setting of Shakespeare’s tragic romance Romeo and Juliet. But there’s so much more to this northern Italian city than obsessive teen love.

You’ll find plenty of ways to spend your days in Verona, but nightfall is when your real options begin. After a long day of hunting designer labels on the Via Mazzini, take a leisurely stroll around the Piazza Bra, where every restaurateur will swear his gelato is the best. If you’re less commercially minded, venture behind the Roman Amphitheatre, where you can scale Verona’s tallest hill and see the Austrian Barracks. The finishing touch they put on the region’s best sunset is a sight to rival even Leo DiCaprio in a suit of armour…

Verona's Top 10

10. Sant Anastasia Built in 1280, the church’s façade is covered with still-discernable biblical scenes.

5. San Zeno Maggiore Church The site of the famed death scene from Romeo and Juliet attracts lit geeks and Leo lovers in equal numbers.

9. Casa di Giuiletta Said to be Juliet’s very own house, thousands of love letters are left each year on the balcony.

4. Villa InCanto Opera Lirica If you’re yearning to see opera in Italy, this traditional venue is the place.

8. Verona’s Cathedral This 12th century duoma is a stunning (and surprisingly pristine) example of Romanesque architecture.

3. Sigurta Park Well worth the steep entry fee, this park fully deserves its rep as one of the five prettiest in the world.

7. Piazza dei Signori Often described as the Heart of Verona, this bustling square is surrounded by buildings of all eras.

2. Arena di Verona This Roman amphitheatre is almost as renowned for its exceptional performances as it is for its well-maintained façade.

6. Torre dei Lamberti If you’re not afraid of heights, this tower offers the crème de la crème of Verona vistas.

1. Piazza delle Erbe Home to the most beautiful and important buildings in the city.

The Opera Season runs from June to August and attracts visitors and acts from around the globe.

A mix of religious rite of passage and music festival, the quirky Festa dei Cimbri a Camposilvano shows the weird side of Verona in July.

When To Go

Below-freezing temperatures are not uncommon from November to January, so dress warmly.

July and August are easily the warmest months, when the temperatures nudge 30°C (86°F).

Walking is the best way to visit the nooks and crannies that make Verona wonderful.

Many hotels are located in the suburbs, so be sure to double-check the bus timetable before venturing to the more popular attractions.

A rental car is a good option if your stay in Verona is more of a pit stop.

General Information

Instantly recognizable to anyone familiar with William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", Verona is a popular destination in Italy's beautiful Veneto region. Home to a famous, if not fictional, balcony and monument to the Bard's tragic heroine, the UNESCO World Heritage city of 260,000 people is a real treasure.

A wealthy class of nobles built Verona into a fashionable and majestic city almost one-thousand years ago. As a result and because of Verona's vital role as a commercial hub over time, the city has a priceless trove of exquisite monuments, landmarks and architecural gems to explore. From the magnificent Roman Arena to the Romanesque Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore, Verona Cathedral and ancient Ponte di Castelvecchio, Verona has enough attractions to make your head spin. For a special treat, head to the top of the Castel San Pietro for the most awesome panoramic view of what is a remarkable Italian city.
