Discover Verona with your insider. Follow the footprints left by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and be raped by this fascinating city.
What to Expect
Shakespeare placed star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in Verona for good reason: romance, drama and fatal family feuding have been the city's hallmark for centuries. This journey will start with the 2,000-year-old amphitheater called Arena, built before the Colosseum in Rome and still used today for concerts and cultural events.
You'll walk through the evocative streets of Verona to reach the world-famous Juliet's House, with the balcony and the statue of Juliet, the unlucky protagonist of the heart-breaking tragedy. You'll proceed to Herbs Square with its lively market, its glamorous palaces, the fascinating fountain of Madonna Verona, the Lamberti Tower and the ancient Domus Mercatorum,
Your next step is the historical Signori Square, astonishing in its simple elegance: here the entire history of Verona can be seen, from the Roman period, through the Romanesque, the Gothic, the Renaissance-period buildings, to today's life. Passing through evocative medieval courtyards and backstreets, you'll finally reach the Scala Family Tombs. You'll have wonderful and ever-lasting memories of this fascinating city, which will remain in your heart forever.
