Are you in love? Do you want to take a little romantic getaway? Why don’t you treat yourself a nice weekend in Verona? Here’s what to do in the most romantic city in history!
If you are planning a romantic trip, I recommend a weekend in Verona, the city of lovers for excellence, known for having been the background to the story of Romeo and Juliet. Do you remember that we had already talked about it here?
A love full of difficulties, which forces the couple to do everything to stay together. What could be more romantic?
For heaven’s sake, we still speak of a tragedy and therefore without the long-awaited happy ending. But it is enough to realize the atmosphere of a city devoted to love and romance.
So let’s see what are the steps not to be missed to spend a weekend in Verona in the name of love.
The attractions not to be missed in Verona
Verona is a historic city full of attractions that make it a real gem. Among the historical monuments not to be missed are the well-known Arena di Verona.
Besides giving him a day visit, the advice I give you is to attend a performance in this romantic setting.
To make sure you can have this unique experience, you can watch the shows in Verona on the official website by booking the ticket in advance so as to be sure to find a place.
Among the other memorable places of this city we obviously also find the home of Romeo and Juliet. The balcony from which the beautiful girl looked out will be an inspiration for many of you who will not be able to resist the temptation to hang out.
Among the many churches of great interest in the city, then, there is the Church of San Zeno Maggiore: a building in pure Romanesque style and one of the few examples still present in Italy.
Also Piazza delle Erbe is worth a visit due to the presence of several medieval buildings in this part of the city. Finally, I would like to mention also the fortress of Castelvecchio with its towers, its squares and its magnificent courtyards.
Two-day walking itinerary to Verona
To fully enjoy the city and spend a wonderful weekend in Verona it is advisable to follow a defined itinerary.
The advice is to walk around because the city is full of romantic pedestrian paths. Wanting to trace a possible itinerary on foot, start from Piazza Bra: a place that allows a true immersion in a series of very different architectural styles.
From Piazza Bra it will then be possible to move in the direction of Via Mazzini, just to discover Romeo and Juliet’s house and the famous balcony traced by Shakespeare’s pen.
Taking Via Cappello, you can visit Piazza delle Erbe, where you can entertain yourself in the lively market and discover many shops and shops full of souvenirs or, better yet, take an aperitif. I have many good memories of evenings spent in this magnificent square.
From here you can continue to Piazza dei Signori, reachable by crossing Via della Costa.
Here you will find a very refined climate and style from an architectural point of view. On the second day, however, I advise you to dedicate it entirely to visit San Zeno, Porta Borsari and Veronetta.
I have been to Verona many times, often for work and just a coupleof times for leisure, but I love this city with a bohemian atmosphere and extremely clean (as opposed to Rome).
A weekend in Verona: I really recommend it to everyone!
