Verona is a small city in the north of Italy, where you can see the sights of different eras, from Ancient Rome to the middle ages. Shakespeare`s play "Romeo and Juliet" also gives this city an aura of romance.

The best place to start your trip around the city is The very picturesque Castelvecchio (Old castle). It was built in the 14th century, turning Verona into an impregnable fortress. Now the castle is a wonderful Museum. 

The castle is connected to the other Bank by a beautiful Scaliger Bridge built in the 14th century. Not far from it is another ancient bridge, the Ponte Pietra, which was built in 89 BC.

The Roman amphitheatre in Verona, called the Arena di Verona, is one of the largest in the world. Moreover, if other amphitheatres are in ruins nowadays, the Verona amphitheatre is in good preservation and its acoustics are excellent. Every summer, the Arena hosts the famous Opera festival.

  The most romantic attraction in Verona is the house of Juliet. Thanks to Shakespeare`s play "Romeo and Juliet" Verona has become world famous, and this has affected the number of tourists coming here. 

The walls of the passage to Juliet`s house, which is called Arch of Love, are covered with messages from lovers to each other. In the courtyard is a house that in the past belonged to the Capello family, which is very consonant with the "Capuletti". Now there is a museum dedicated to Shakespeare`s play Romeo and Juliet. There are many interesting exhibits here. Although the most interesting is the house itself with a balcony. All the girls want to be photographed on the balcony, where Juliet listened to love confession from Romeo.

Verona is also home to several Gothic cathedrals built in the Middle ages. The main one is the Duomo. No less beautiful are the Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore, the Basilica of Saint Anastasia, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Antica. In the Franciscan monastery of San Francesco al Corso, you can see the crypt. According to legend, Juliet was buried there.

The Central square of the city is Piazza del Erbe. It is small in size, but very cozy. Here you can see medieval palaces and houses, and nearby stands the Lamberti Tower. This tower can be climbed to see the beautiful panorama of the historic center of Verona.
