Verona sightseeing in the city of lovers
It’s Valentine’s Day <3. That’s why decided to write about Verona sightseeing .
Today people from all over the world celebrate their love.
We want to share with you our memories from the most romantic city on Earth- Verona. The city of Romeo and Juliet. Of course they are fictional characters, but who cares!
They are the most famous lovers ever. Read more about our journey in their footsteps.
1. Arena di Verona.
This was the first monument we saw in Verona. And it’s really impressive!
To be honest, we didn’t read much about Verona before our trip. We were too excited about Bologna and Venice, which we visited first. All we did before visiting this city was booking a taxi and a hotel.
We think it was a good thing, not to expecting anything from the city of Romeo and Juliet.
It surprised us positively!
Arena di Verona is huge, similar to Roman Collosseum. It’s the third largest Roman amphitheater on the world.
What’s interesting, Arena is still open to public. You can go there to watch opera, ballet or other perfomance. Awesome, right? 🙂
2. Piazza delle Erbe.
If you go down the Via Giuseppe Mazzini (which is really charming btw) you can easily get to Piazza delle Erbe. During Roman Empire it was one of the famous place in the whole town, called forum. People hanged out there and it was also a marketplace.
To this day, you can buy many things at Piazza delle Erbe, including souvenirs, food, clothes etc.
This place is really lovely! If you have enough time, stay there a little longer. Buy yourself an ice cream or coffee at watch everyday life of locals.
3. Casa di Giulietta.
It’s Juliet’s House, very close to Piazza delle Erbe.
We absolutely loved this place!
It’s so romantic: walls coated with love letters, Juliet’s statue (if you touch her right breast, you’ll find your true love) and…. the balcony!
Juliet stood on it when Romeo told her how much he loved her.
Ahhh… It’s all so sweet :).
You can go inside Casa di Giullietta. It’s worth to visit nearby shops too.
You can buy there hand embroidered souvenirs and… send love letter by Posta di Giulietta.
Verona really is perfect place for lovers :).
In Verona, you can also visit Casa di Romeo (Romeo’s house) and Tomba di Giulietta (Juliet’s tomb).
In our opinnion it’s not worth to go there. These places are too overrated.
