Verona Cheap Flight Deals
Verona is packed full of historical and cultural sights and attractions, from its impressive Roman amphitheatre to the wonderful Castelvecchio. Another reason why booking flights to Verona is a good idea is because it's in the Italian Lake District, so there is plenty of picturesque scenery just a short distance outside of the city where you can enjoy the fresh air.
The flight time from London to Verona is around two hours, making it easily manageable for a long weekend. Monarch offers flights from London Gatwick and Manchester airports, so there should be a route within relatively easy reach of your home.
Why fly to Verona?
Verona is a city with a lot of history, as well as fascinating cultural ties. One of its most famous associations is with the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet - there's even a house that has what's known as Juliet's Balcony. While this wasn't the house Shakespeare had in mind when he wrote the famous scene, it has become a tourist attraction nevertheless.
One of Verona's most impressive attractions is its Roman amphitheatre known as the Arena. It was constructed in the 1st century AD and is still used to this day - although now opera performances take centre stage, rather than gladiatorial battles.
Other famous monuments in Verona - which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site - include the Basilica of St Zeno, Verona Cathedral, Lamberti's Tower and Castel San Pietro. There is a lot to do here, so make sure you plan your visit carefully. Head to the top of Lamberti's Tower if you want outstanding views across the city.
There are also several museums in Verona, the most important of which is housed in Castelvecchio. This establishment showcases artwork, sculptures, weapons and many other artefacts of interest.
Verona: gateway to the Italian Lake District
While the city itself makes the flight to Verona more than worthwhile, its location in the Italian Lake District means it has more to offer - ideal if you'll be spending longer than a few days here. Lake Garda is around a 30 minute train journey from the city, so it's easy to reach the countryside if you fancy a few days away from the urban hubbub.
Lake Garda is the largest of Italy's lakes and is a wonderful place for all kinds of outdoor activities, from hiking and cycling to sailing and climbing. It has a temperate Mediterranean climate, which makes it a popular place to visit at any time of the year.
As well as its glorious outdoor spaces, Lake Garda boasts numerous towns and cities that are wonderful to explore. Gardone Riviera, Castelnuovo del Garda, Desenzano del Garda, Salo and Arco are just a handful of the places you can visit after arriving on a flight to Verona.
There are also some excellent spas here, where thermal springs provide a natural rejuvenation and modern wellness facilities have been developed so you can be pampered before you fly home.
