City of Romeo and Juliet
The famous setting for Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, Verona is one of northern Italy's main tourist destinations, largely owing to its incredibly rich artistic heritage. In honor of its characteristic urban structure and well-preserved architecture, Verona has been awarded the prestigious status of a World Heritage site. Though the details of Verona's origins and early history remain a mystery, the city was important during Roman times because of its strategic location at the intersection of several major roads. Today, Verona is a dynamic city with many attractions, such as the remnants of medieval structures. Make sure your sightseeing itinerary includes the well-preserved Roman ruins like the Arena, an ancient amphitheater now used for large-scale opera performances. Look for architectural details related to the Scaligeri family, who ruled Verona from the 12th to 14th century. Their family emblem was a ladder, which appears in many places around the city. Plan your holiday in Verona and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Italy road trip planning website.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
