"There is no world without Verona walls,
But purgatory, torture, hell itself.
Hence-banished is banish'd from the world,
And world's exile is death..."
William Shakespeare, Romeo e Juliet - Act III, Scene III
Things to do in Verona
WALKS AND MUSEUMS
It goes without saying that there are museums of Ancient, Medieval and Modern art. Moreover, Verona is a city that is loved for its most beautiful atmosphere and architecture. It is essential to wear comfortable shoes and go for long walks along the banks of the river Adige, crossing its numerous bridges, going uphill to enjoy the panoramic view, and losing yourself in some of the lesser known streets and alleys of the center to discover hidden gems.
Verona offers abundant temptations to those passionate about shopping. There are shops that cater to all budgets.
COFFEE SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS
Coffee shops At every street corner you’d find coffee shops and restaurants, many of which dazzle, not just for the delectable dishes on offer (such as the “risotto all’Amarone”), but also for their settings, offering the chance to have a meal surrounded by Roman ruins. The Verona region is also famous for its wine production and there are many wineries on the hills outside the centre which offer guided tours, along with tastings of wine, such as Amarone, Valpolicella and Soave.
Evenings, Verona becomes infused with a romantic aura. You can go out to dine in a restaurant, have a cocktail in a piazza, or sip on a glass of delectable wine along the banks of the river Adige. As for artesan ice cream, when eaten in front of the Roman theatre, it has a completely different flavour!
Verona is a city that hosts a lot of interesting events all year round, such as Vinitaly (the wine trade show) and the “Tocati” (the international fair of street games). In the summer, the most renowned event is the Opera festival at the Arena of Verona (link to the article visitaly). Attending one of those live performances is an experience for everybody. The Arena is such a one of a kind site that you don’t need to be an Opera fan to enjoy an unforgettable experience. A visit to the Roman theatre is also not to be missed: for 2000 years it has entertained its audiences with performances and continues to do so, from jazz concerts to Shakespeare classics, to modern ballet.
Last but not least, you can rent a bicycle in Verona and cycle to places where you can immerse yourself in nature. For relaxation, you can stopover in one of the spas of the region, or go on a day trip to lake Garda or the mountains of Lessinia.
