A step back in time
Visiting Verona is like diving into history. Here, many Roman buildings can still be seen today, including the 2000-year-old Arena, a colossal amphitheatre. Close your eyes and it’s easy to imagine gladiators and wild animals stalking about the ring. Want a taste of the Arena’s ambiance in action? Attend a concert or opera. Walking through the city gate known as Porta Borsari or across the iconic Ponte Pietra bridge, you’ll picture yourself in ancient Rome. Up for a bit of romance? Stroll to ‘Juliet’s house’, immortalised in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Legend has it that if you want to be lucky in love, you should rub the statue of Juliet.
