Beautiful Verona is a city of Roman ruins, medieval buildings, Italian culture and romance, famous as the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Verona's historic heart is surrounded on three sides by a loop of the picturesque River Adige and is a UNESCO world heritage site.
Verona's main attractions include Juliet's balcony and the great Roman Arena - the imposing amphitheatre built by the Romans in the first century AD, which is now used as an open air opera house. The charming narrow streets and picturesque piazzas of Verona make the city a pleasure to explore, while an abundance of pavement cafés offer the perfect opportunity to relax with a drink, savour the atmosphere and watch the world go by - a truly Italian pastime.
