This town, built on the banks of the Adige River and within easy reach of Venice, offers its visitors a wealth of attractions. The symbol of the city is undoubtedly the Arena, a Roman amphitheatre dating back to the first century AD.
Still in excellent condition, thanks also to the restorations carried out from time to time since the seventeenth century, the amphitheatre of Piazza Bra hosts famous events, from opera festivals to concerts starring musicians of national and international fame.
A visit to Verona can also, therefore, include the opportunity to attend an exciting live performance in the company of some 20,000 other spectators. Alternatively, during the day, you can visit the amphitheatre and imagine the gladiator fights and other shows that entertained the ancient Romans.
From Piazza Bra you can reach Piazza dell'Erbe, the oldest square in the city and once Verona's economic and political hub. This square located on the site of a Roman forum is also famous for its characteristic market.
Not far from Piazza delle Erbe is Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's house), set in a mediaeval building. Looking out from the famous balcony and taking a picture with the statue of Juliet is like personally experiencing the Shakespearean tragedy. Lastly, Castelvecchio, also known as the Castle of San Martino in Aquaro, is well worth a visit.
This ancient monument was a symbol of the military power of the Scaliger family and now houses the Civic Museum. Between cultural excursions and strolls in the streets of the historic centre, those on holiday can enjoy moments of leisure and relaxation in Verona.
After exploring the most evocative places in the city, you can visit one of the typical wineries to taste the local wines: Amarone, Recioto and Valpolicella. A bottle of wine is also an original souvenir to take home or a great gift for a friend who appreciates fine wine.
