Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Verona, Italy.
A visit to Verona gives the term ‘romantic holiday’ a different meaning altogether! It is a combination of a holiday and an opportunity to see and marvel some historic romantic spots. There are several interesting things to see and appreciate on a trip to this town.
We have all heard of Romeo and Juliet, so how about starting with a visit to see Juliet’s balcony? It is one of the most romantic places on earth you could go to and the setting of one of the most important plays of Shakespeare. You can also become a part of Verona by inscribing your name on the Lovers’ Terrace!
From love, head the other way to the Arena, which was built by the Romans in the 1st century AD. It was often the scene for some intense action between gladiators and wild animals. Today it is the best-preserved Roman amphitheatre and acts as the venue for some high quality Opera and musical concerts. Take in a show while you are here, as that is something you will certainly appreciate.
The oldest marketplace
Head to the Piazza Erbe, which has been a marketplace besides being the centre of the city’s political and economic life for over 2000 years. It is named after the old herb market and provides an opportunity to pick up some interesting souvenirs.
The religious experience
Verona has many important churches that you can visit. The most important among them are the Church of San Giorgietto, the Bascilicia de San Zeno and the San Fermo Maggiore, among others. All of them are architecturally appealing and have interesting frescoes insides. For the religiously inclined, it is a must visit.
The Scaligeri tombs
These tombs stand out for their architectural style of rich Gothic design. It makes for a beautiful sight, though getting the perfect shot might prove to be a bit tricky, considering the space constraint outside.
The local flavour
Get a taste of the city by walking down the Corso Porto Nuova, which begins quite close to the railway station and ends near the Arena. The vibrant atmosphere and the wide sidewalks add to the charm of the place as you take in the architectural delights.
Besides all these, you can also spend some time taking in the town gates, museums, and ancient bridges that dot the town and the numerous vineyards, which add to the experience of a wonderful holiday. You are not likely to forget this trip for long. In fact, you might be back very soon for another visit!
