Verona tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Verona, known as piccolo Rome (little Rome), is a World Heritage-listed work of art with a seductive medley of ornamental gateways - such as Porta Bosari and Porta Leoni - Renaissance palaces and Roman remains.

Situated on the Veneto Plain alongside the Dolomites and Lake Garda, Verona offers medieval towns and scenic landscapes.

Some of the most luxurious Verona hotels can be found in the heart of the historic centre, such as the renovated Due Torri Baglioni, a 14th century residence which features sumptuous dining options in its Brunello Lounge Restaurant.

Romeo and Juliet

Fans of Shakespeare can visit the original houses of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet.

The 13th century Capulet House, with its famous balcony where Juliet spoke to Romeo, belonged to the Dal Cappello family.

The medieval Montague house was once owned by the Counts of Cagnolo Nogarola and can be found in Via Arche Scaligere. While the interior of the house is closed to visitors, the inscription on its façade is worth visiting to read the famous quote: "Oh Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?"

Verona Province

The province of Verona is framed by two mountain ranges, the Monte Baldo Range and Lessinia Highlands, and in the colder months its slopes become a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts.

The province is also surrounded by the Verona Hills, which are divided into two sections, the foothills where the Lessinian Mountains meet the vineyards of Valpolicella and Soave, and the Morainic Hills to the southeast of Lake Garda in the Italian Lakes, making Verona ideal for excursions to the picturesque Italian Lakes region and for enjoying some of Verona's finest wines.

Opera

One of the most celebrated sites in Verona is undoubtedly The Verona Arena.

Situated in the Piazza Bra', this famous theatre is an architectural masterpiece dating back to the 1st century and holds some of the most atmospheric and captivating performances of Verona Opera in the world.

The theatre's elliptical shape and its well-preserved inner circle, which still boasts a double tier of 72 arches, combine to create pitch-perfect acoustics and one of the most memorable musical experiences possible.
