“IN fair Verona, where we lay our scene...”
The words immortalised by William Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet capture the essence of this absolutely stunning city.
And he was not the only author inspired by the city’s beauty. It also featured in Dante Alighieri’s ‘Divine Comedy’.
It was visited by Julius Caesar, Goethe, Stendhal and Paul Valery in its vast history and will undoubtedly impress anyone. Located in northern Italy, Verona is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Europe. Numerous monuments and remains are left from the time of the ancient Romans onwards. The current city centre, for instance, used to be a Roman military settlement.
