Verona: The City of Lovers

Last weekend I had an amazing day trip in Verona (Italy) and since it was my first time in the city, I spent the entire day wandering through the streets and cobblestoned alleys. Amongst the multitude of things you can visit and do in Verona, there are certainly some you can’t miss. First of all, if you are addicted to venues-with-a-view as much as I am, you MUST climb into the top of Lamberti Tower.

Not to mention the amazing Arena, which is quite similar to Colosseum, but smaller. Here, during Spring and Summer, you can also take part in a live concert or opera. Check the program in advance and buy tickets! Believe me, you won’t be disappointed.

If all this wandering makes you feel a little tired, stop at Piazza Delle Erbe, which is the nicest square in town. Take a seat and enjoy an Italian ice-cream or a refreshing Spritz, while taking some pictures of the surrounding buildings; so typical and historical. Not far from the square, do not forget to pay visit to the picturesque street Via Delle Fogge.

Last, but not least, wait for the sunset on the medieval Scaligero bridge.

 

P.S. I didn’t mention the Romeo and Juliet’s balcony. Well, it’s a real touristic and flashy attraction. I isn’t worth a visit. Better reading the Shakespeare’s tragedy.
