Verona, known all over the world by William Shakespeare's drama, the heartbreaking love story of Romeo and Juliet, is one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities in Italy. It is also known as the "Gateway to Italy", because it anticipates the beauty of our country to those coming from Northern Europe. Here we find not only Juliet's balcony, but also the arena, the fourth amphitheatre after the Colosseum in Rome, the one in Capua and the one in Milan, where still today thousands of music and opera lovers go for an unforgettable evening in the moonlight.
Situated along the Adige river, which crosses and cuts in two its territory, it is full of bridges that still preserve original materials from the Roman era, such as Ponte di Pietra, an important link between the Roman Theatre and the heart of the city.
Its historic centre is characterized by charming streets leading to the famous squares surrounded by beautiful buildings, such as Piazza delle Erbe, the oldest square in the city, with its colourful fruit and vegetable market, or Piazza Bra, one of the largest in Europe, dominated by the architecture of the arena and some imposing buildings and pavement in pink marble.
Do not forget its centuries-old culinary tradition, descending from the kitchens of the nobles who lived in these lands, from gnocchi, meat, sweets, such as the typical Italian almond, always accompanied by a good wine, such as Bardolino or Valpolicella, Verona is in fact the first Italian province for the production of D.O.C. wines.
