Discover this vibrant city's culture and history
Vibrant riverside Verona is a city of music and romance, with so many sights to be discovered. The second biggest city in the Veneto region, it sits on the flat landscape of the Veneto plain, dramatically neighbouring the spectacular Dolomite Mountains and Lake Garda.
Favoured by the Romans in 89BC, Verona was once dubbed 'Piccola Roma' (little Rome). This vibrant city is now a wonderful blend of ancient history, inspirational music, classical wines and wonderful shops, with lots more to do while wandering among its cobbled streets.
Verona Holiday Highlights
• Discover churches, monuments and palazzi built from the local pink limestone in Piazza delle Erbe, which has been the centre of Verona since the days of the Roman Empire.
• At night you may hear reverberating music from the famous Roman amphitheatre, which dates from 30AD and is the third largest in existence. Seating around 20,000 people, this ancient landmark lures opera enthusiasts from all over the world, particularly during July and August when it hosts an international annual opera festival.
