Why choose Verona?
Verona is the perfect destination for those looking to experience some history in a modern cosmopolis. You can spend your days here wandering around musuems and historical sites, sitting in a cafe's drinking authentic Italian coffee, or shop til your heart's content in some of the finest boutiques.
One of its most famous associations is with the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. The house that has what's known as Juliet's Balcony is one of Verona's most popular tourist attractions.
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 include the Basilica of St Zeno, Verona Cathedral, Lamberti's Tower and Castel San Pietro. There are also several museums in Verona, the most important of which is housed in Castelvecchio and if you want outstanding views across the city, then head to the top of Lamberti's Tower.
Via Mazzini is the main shopping street that runs through the city. It's pretty hard to miss the opulent stores, high-street brands and independent boutiques located here so head to this street if you fancy treating yourself.
Piazza del Erbe
This is Verona's main square. Here you will encounter markets selling anything from fruit and vegetables to clothes and souvenirs - well worth a visit.
The surrounding area
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.
