A Guide to Fair Verona

Verona; the city of love.

When visiting Italy, Verona is one place you cannot skip. It’s a place you can see in a day and gives you a wholistic taste of Italy: good food, bridges and a river, a bridge, architecture, art, history and above all, love. It is also very tourist-friendly, offering very good wifi connectivity and an abundance of signs. So forget about the maps and step into Romeo and Giulietta’s world for a day, where I’m positive you will ‘look to like.’

Verona is breathtaking. While you’re traversing, heres what you can expect to find. It’s as if every corner is a painting thats come to life. There really is no question as to why its called the city of love.

Walk along the river, stopping to admire the statues, then find yourself gawking at the houses along the way.

To enter one of the city gates, no invitation is necessary. Step inside and make your way through the corridors. Stop to smell the roses when you walk past flower shops along the way and have a glass a vino when you find restaurants that look like this:

…and, of course, take many selfies if you’re like me, wondering “where fore art thou Romeo” to take them for me :)..

*Other places to visit: Casa di Romeo, Giusti Gardens, the Juliet Club (where you can volunteer to be a secretary of Juliet as I did!)
