Verona, Italy, is located in the northeastern region of Veneto. It is known as a romantic and ancient city that is often overshadowed by larger tourist destinations like Venice. Although many people flock to Venice when in the north, Verona is a welcome escape from crowds as well as a relaxed, pleasant and historically rich place to visit. Famous as the setting for Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Verona was a Roman city, and many Roman ruins have been preserved, notably it’s Arena. Most of the historical sites which grab the interest of tourists date back more than 800 years.
