Back To Venice

 

VeronaVerona is one of Northern Italy's loveliest and most artistically alluring cities. Verona's picturesque centre set on the Adige river, is scattered with Roman and medieval remains together with churches, monuments and a labyrinth of old streets, every bit as romantic  as when Shakespeare chose Verona as the setting for  'Romeo and Juliet'. The story was based on true families and their feuds, though the characters of Romeo and Juliet are ficticious, but it is hard to resist the balcony at the Casa di Giulietta!

 

Visit the Roman Amphitheatre, the scene for spectacular opera performanVerona's Colosseumces. There is nowhere better to enjoy a performance of the opera than in Italy, and under the stars in Verona's amphitheatre is possibly one of the best.
