Verona is a city in Veneto, northern Italy, and is one of the main tourist destinations, due to its artistic heritage, annual fairs, shows and operas. It’s ancient amphitheatre built by the Romans still stands.

Okay, so one of the main reasons people flock to Verona is to see Juliet’s balcony, as in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. Although the story is set in Siena, and not Verona, the balcony and “Juliet’s house”, now a museum, seems to attract people of all walks of life.

Things to see:
· Piazza dei Signori
· Museo Archeologico del Teatro Romano (“Roman theatre”)
· Ponte di Pietra ("Stone Wall Bridge)
· The Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore
