Travel tips for visiting Verona
Planning your dream trip to Italy can be a difficult task so we have put together a series of travel tips articles to help solve that problem and get the most out of your stay.
Ever since William Shakespeare wrote his romantic tragedy and set it in the Italian city of Verona, the town has been associated with the doomed but beautiful story of Romeo and Juliet. Verona is a beautiful destination in itself with a pleasing relaxed atmosphere, plenty of Italian sunshine and lots of monuments to love.
Romeo and Juliet's story of star-crossed love has become inextricably entwined with Verona (in legend if not in actual reality) turning it into one of the most romantic destinations in Italy. And, Valentine's Day on the 14th February gives the city the perfect occasion to celebrate this honor with the annual Verona in Love Festival. If you're in love, this is definitely the time of year to visit.
