Verona is the ideal location to enjoy a cultural yet romantic escape together with your dear one! No wonder Shakespeare chose Verona as the setting for the legendary tragic story of Romeo and Juliet.
On this tour, you’ll get the chance to visit Verona, and spend an evening at the stunning, highly recognized Arena Opera. Departing from Rome, you will reach Verona by high speed train to enjoy two days in this stunning city.
Once you arrive in Verona, you can check in at the hotel and, soon afterward, get ready to discover the city at your own pace with hop- on hop- off tickets. The culture and art of this place are suitable for every taste; everyone can find something appealing here! Verona is often referred to as piccolo Rome, which, translated means Little Rome, due to its lively city life, architectural diversity and great shopping variety. On this tour, one can grasp at the Roman gates – which are part of the original ancient city wall – not to mention that there are other ruins which prove the magnitude of the long gone Roman Empire.
Verona is, first and foremost, popular as it’s the setting that inspired Shakespeare in creating the eternal love story of Romeo and Juliet. But the beautiful buildings that have remained almost intact undoubtedly contribute to the city’s charm and popularity. Verona’s spectacular architecture is crowned by the imposing, magnificent amphitheater – the Arena. It has remained unchanged, which makes it possible for up to 25,000 spectators to participate in memorable performances during the one and only Opera Festival in Verona.
Indeed, something that you shouldn’t miss when in Verona is relishing an opera performance in the majestic Arena. The vibe of a life performance on a summer night in the Arena is unparalleled. You’ll feel as if you’re taking part in an ancient Roman spectacle. In the days of the old Roman Empire, the Arena would host 30,000 spectators, who came from all over Europe. That hasn’t changed today either, as millions of tourists from around the world choose to live this one of a kind experience.
