No stranger to romance, Verona is a city of heart-stopping beauty. The setting for Shakespeare’s ill-fated Romeo and Juliet, it’s also home to an enchanting town centre, impressive monuments and sensational opera.

When to go

Visit between June and August to catch an opera performance in Verona’s ancient amphitheatre. Crowds dissipate in the autumn; winters can be terribly romantic if you wrap up warm.

Food & Drink

Verona’s under-the-radar vineyards give Tuscany a run for its money. Cosy up in one of the city’s atmospheric wine bars for a sip of valpolicella classico, a local red with seductive cherry notes. La Fontanina is our favourite spot for indulging in fruity vintages. Unassuming trattoria Al Pompiere has perfected the city’s beloved risotto: it’s creamy, delicate and changes with the seasons.

Not to miss

Take a picnic to the hilltop of the Guisti Garden, and trace a route through the labyrinth of hedgerows below.

Nightlife

Verona comes alive in the evenings with concerts, street musicians and bars hosting live gigs. Cocktail bar Rivamacina always strikes the right note with its fruity concoctions and riverside location. Don’t miss a sip of Caffè Filippini’s signature drink, a vermouth, gin and lemon tipple that’s turned this Piazza delle Erbe hangout into a bit of an institution.

Where to stay in Verona

For the best views, stay by the glistening Adige River. The Unesco-protected old town is more lively: expect jaw-dropping architecture , buzzy wine bars and a scattering of Roman sights.

How to get there

The main train station, Verona Porto Nuovo, has excellent domestic links, as well as easy access to Venice’s international train station. Verona Villafranca Airport serves both domestic and seasonal European flights.
