Verona

Within a short distance by road or by train lies the famous ancient city of Verona. Verona was a significant city in Roman times and boasts a number of Roman monuments, including its amphitheatre, the Arena, which is the third largest in Italy and which is still used for open-air theatre and opera performances during the summer months.

Verona is perhaps best known as the setting for Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet” which recounts the doomed love between Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. The balcony from which Juliet supposedly called to Romeo in the play is a much-visited site, and the castles of the Montague and Capulet families can still be seen, in the countryside around the city.
