Verona vacations are a must for anyone who wants to see the soul of storybook Italy. The famous home of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, romance abounds in iconic Verona—but that's not all this classic Italian city offers. This ancient Roman trade center sees tourists coming and going as goods once did. Visit this UNESCO World Heritage city, which is famous for opera and architecture, and stroll the streets to soak in a timeless, archaic ambiance that contrasts starkly but nicely with high-end, modern-day shops.
Verona vacation packages allow you excellent access to Verona's prime asset: the city streets themselves. Antiquity comes alive through San Zeno Maggiore Church and the bridges of Ponte Pietra and Ponte Scaligero. Travel back in time at the prominent Roman-era arena and explore the Castelvecchio Museum—a fine art collection housed in a restored 14th-century castle. Don't miss the fabled Juliet's balcony on an old house in downtown. There's plenty to do, so browse Verona car rentals in order to get around easily.
Visit during the summer for the Opera Festival, which features some of the best singers in the world in one of Rome's most ancient amphitheaters. Jazz lovers gather here in July for three weeks of Italian and international jazz music throughout the city. Get into the carnival spirit in February and March, when Verona plays hosts to the Carnevale festival. Held here since the 1600s, the festival is especially kind to those with a sweet tooth. March and April bring the Festival del Cinema Sentimentale e Melò—a film festival with an appropriate focus on romantic movies.
