Verona Home to the greatest love story

Fly from Cardiff to Verona with a one stop connection

Verona is a popular tourist destination for those seeking a slice of the Shakespearian love story, ‘Romeo and Juliet’. It is easy for romantics to fall in love with this city as once they enter the ancient Roman gates of Porta Borsari they can become immersed in the pretty streets. Nevertheless, this Italian city is so much more than the setting of Shakespeare’s greatest love story.

The city is also known as ‘little Rome’, and it is easy to see why as it is home to some magnificent Roman monuments, including the Verona Arena, a Roman amphitheatre which comes alive every summer with operatic performances. The city also has its share of medieval references and Renaissance art and culture which makes it an Aladdin’s cave for history.

Although it might be famous for the tragic love between Romeo and Juliet, there will be no love lost during a trip to Verona.

 

  1. Hit the shops. The main places to shop in Verona are Corso Porta Borsari and Via Mazzini, where you will find some Italian treasures. The former is also very picturesque as you pass through the arches of a huge Roman gate.
  2. Go to church. Rome isn’t the only place with beautiful churches, so try and make some time to visit the Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore.
  3. Eat some gelato. It would be a shame to visit Italy and not taste their ice cream, and coincidently Verona provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy this sweet treat.
  4. Visit Juliet’s house. There are references to Romeo and Juliet throughout the city, and visitors can even go to Juliet’s house to see her balcony and even rub her statue for good luck!
  5. Explore Italy. Verona is a great base to sightsee more of Italy and if you head to the east of Lake Garda you will find places like Valpolicella, where you will be able to sample some well-known wine.

 

Take a bus trip to Lake Garda and experience one of the regions most beautiful lakes with the best Gelato you will ever taste at Limone
