This city is the setting for one of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays, Romeo and Juliet. And you can see its Roman origins in the ancient ruins scattered throughout the centre, leading to the city’s inclusion on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. The entire city centre is encircled by the River Adige and rolling hills -just a couple of minutes walk from the city- that offer stunning panoramic views. The Arena di Verona is an open-air theatre that dates back to the Roman period; its summer Opera Festival is famous all round Europe. Verona is also a world wine capital and the fourth most popular travel destination in Italy. It is just 20 minutes away from Garda Lake, a paradise for windsurfing and sailing aficionados, with picturesque villages directly on the water, surrounded by olive trees.

On top of the torre dei Lamberti or the Cathedral bell tower. On the terrace at Castel San Pietro or between the battlements of Castelvecchio. Even on the elevated walkway along the Adige. Here are the best places to enjoy a view over Verona.
Verona has a special relationship with horses: horse meat is part of the local gastronomy, the Fiera Cavalli horse fair is one of the most important events of the year, and around the city several stables offer nature treks.
The city walls of Verona have been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The imposing ramparts with their Renaissance gates, which run for 9 kilometres including over the hills, are an itinerary worth discovering
