Verona The Essential
Highly recommended
The "pink city" of Verona is world-famous thanks to Shakespeare who was inspired by the feuding between the Guelphs and Ghibellines to write his famous Romeo and Juliet. It is known for the Opera Festival too, which brings Verdi fans together in the sumptuous setting of the Roman Arena. Verona is above all a very beautiful city with a delicate and harmonious mix of Lombard and Venetian Renaissance architecture, from churches to pink marble mansions.
