Verona

In recognition of its exceptional urban structure and architectural splendour, Verona was honoured as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in November 2000, solidifying its status as a cultural treasure.  Verona, located in northern Italy’s Veneto region, is a captivating city with a medieval old town nestled alongside the meandering Adige River. Verona holds a special place in Shakespeare’s literary repertoire, as two of his plays, “Romeo and Juliet” and “The Two Gentlemen of Verona,” are set within its enchanting confines, with the former also featuring Romeo’s visit to Mantua. Verona boasts an exquisite 14th-century residence known as “Juliet’s House,” complete with a charming balcony overlooking a picturesque courtyard. One of the city’s most iconic landmarks is the Verona Arena, an immense Roman amphitheater dating back to the 1st century. Verona is not only steeped in literary history but also boasts its own remarkable figures, such as Isotta Nogarola, a trailblazing female humanist and one of the Renaissance era’s most influential thinkers.
