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.

Located in a picturesque spot in the city centre, Cappa Caffè is certainly one of the most beloved drinking bars of Verona. Lots of live music -especially jazz-, an informal atmosphere and decor featuring comfy sofas, chaise lounges and funky lamps all come together to create a romantic, yet buzzing, atmosphere. The Cappa succeeds in being one of the most evocative places in Verona and, in parallel, the meeting spot for aperitif and nightlife lovers. The splendid terrace overlooking the River Adige is a definite highlight. The perfect location to sip cocktails, frozen drinks and seven types of spritz (local aperitif), while enjoying breathtaking views of the town’s ancient Roman ruins nestled in the hills across the river.
