The renowned home of Shakespeare’s ‘star-cross’d lovers’, Verona remains a living wonder, from the open-air markets and Piazza Bra, to the Verona Opera and Juliet’s balcony.
Romantic Verona is filled with secretive streets, burnt-coloured buildings and medieval architecture. One of Italy’s most attractive cities, it isn't just Juliet's famous balcony that attracts visitors from all over the world, but also Verona's 14,000-capacity Roman amphitheatre, set in the beautiful and bustling Piazza Bra. The amphitheatre still holds concerts throughout the summer season, and we'd highly recommend a trip to the opera if you're staying. You can pre-book performances with us.
Much like the feuding families of Shakespeare’s play, Verona was partially moulded by the unforgiving Scaligeri clan who once ruled the city. Their tombs still reside at the Arche Scaligeri to this day, as a reminder of Verona’s fraught past.
Today the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, acknowledged for its stunning architecture. And you can take it in on foot, sampling delicious local delicacies while you dine in Piazza Bra, picking up a bargain souvenir at Piazza Erbe or making your way to the banks of the Adige to the City Museum.
Short breaks are available online while city add-ons must be booked via your travel agent or by calling our reservations team.
