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.
