Verona is one of the most romantic city in the world; the town of Love, as a lot of people use to call Verona. This because of the words Verona and love go hand in hand like Romeo and Juliet. It is not difficult to understand why Shakespeare chose this city for his unfortunate lovers.
Verona is the city of the Arena, the Roman Amphitheater so majestic and full of poetry that everyone in the world envy us for the emotions that can give. Verona is Piazza Erbe, with its bustling market of life, the giant tree during the Christmas season and the Torre dei Lamberti that, if you have enough breath to climb it, offers a unique view of the city while it becomes small under your feet.
Verona the home of Juliet, synthesis of love and pain; and then, the Castle of San Pietro, a panoramic terrace that can be reached by climbing a lot of steps. It’s always nice to walk around the center and find out where Romeo, Juliet’s house lived, where Romeo killed Tebaldo and finished the tour with Juliet’s tomb: the cult of Romeo and Juliet, a story still alive and felt in the city. An alternative way to experience Verona and discover its lesser-known sides.
