verona 4Verona is a little over an hour and a half from Bologna but well worth the drive. This lovely walking city with its historical city center is a must see. From 2 Gentlemen From Verona to Romeo and Juliet, this city is a living reminder of Shakespeare’s contribution to our civilization. Although we haven’t needed to show our Italy Green Pass at any restaurants, it is necessary in order to view Juliet’s balcony.

The Piazza Delle Erbe was lively with tourists and residents alike on a sunny, clear Saturday afternoon. There are lots of eateries and stores all around the piazza plus an open air market selling all types of goods.

Don’t miss the Arena on Piazza Bra..think Rome’s Colosseum!

Every major retailer is represented here but the real fun is just meandering up and down the narrow cobblestone streets of the old town.

Verona has a great deal of sightseeing and one afternoon can’t possibly encompass it all but an overnight would certainly allow a visitor to take in all the sights this city had to offer.
