Verona in Love
Verona is one of the most romantic cities in Italy.
It all started with William Shakespeare, that decided to set his famous Tragedy Romeo and Juliet in Verona.
Juliet’s balcony is one of the most visited sites in Verona, and you can also visit Juliet’s tomb and Romeo’s house.
That is why on days around Valentine’s Day the city organizes a mini festival with various events.
This year, 2020, the festival takes place from the 13th to the 16th of February.
The town is all dressed up with love decorations, the most interesting probably being the big heart in Piazza Dante, that can best be seen from the Lamberti Tower.
During the festival there are live talks about love, there’s a prize for the window with the best love message, restaurants offer a dish with the love theme, there’s a Half Marathon, there’s an aperitif at the funicular, there are events at bookshops, there’s a street market, all in love theme of course.
Sleeping in Juliet’s House
This year there’s something new: you can actually sleep at Juliet’s house. Something particularly precious if you consider that this is normally not possible, as the medieval building is now a museum.
The stay is organized by Airbnb, and includes a dinner cooked by a starred chef. Furthermore, the couple will sleep in a bed used during the movie “Romeo and Juliet” by Zeffirelli adn they will have the chance to reply to some of the love letters sent to Juliet.
Verona is a beautiful town all year round, but these days it gets even more romantic and loved.
