Verona is often overlooked by travelers to Italy, because it is between Venice and Milan, two of Italy’s more popular tourist destinations. However, you should include Verona in your itinerary because there is actually much to see and enjoy in this city.
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind when Verona is mentioned is the Shakespearean play, “Romeo and Juliet.” Yes, this was the setting for the popular tragedy. One of Verona’s most visited attractions is Juliet’s Balcony, where Romeo professed his love.
But Shakespeare is not the only draw here. Verona has one of the best-preserved Roman Amphitheaters in the world.
Verona is a medieval city and, as such, has the requisite Castle walls to explore.
The San Zeno Maggiore Church is another worthwhile stop in the city.
Finally, the city of Verona remembers the famous Italian poet, Dante Alighieri with a beautiful statue.
