Verona at a Glance

Ancient Verona has captivated romantics from Romeo and Juliet to the present day. This former Roman trade center was home to grand gates, a forum and an enormous Roman arena, which is still in use today as an opera venue. 

Head to Verona to explore its Roman past and to enjoy its medieval and Renaissance art and architecture. If you arrive in summer, you can enjoy some of opera's biggest names on stage at the Roman arena. Check out the amazing Castelvecchio, where you can walk around the turrets of this ancient stronghold, or head inside for a look at Verona's artistic treasures.

Literature lovers will want to stop in at Juliet's balcony, while garden-lovers can check out the Giardino Guisti.
