Luckily we had a qualified guide to show us round. We saw all the important places and very beautiful it all was and it would have been much better if it hadn’t been so crowded. We had to almost force our way through the crowds and were jostled all the time. Particularly crowded was the courtyard containing Juliet’s balcony. Ridiculous to hear lots of people thought it was a true story and her real balcony! The squares were impressive and one even had a market when we were there, unfortunately full of tourist tat! But still lovely. Definitely worth a visit and would recommend a qualified guide to get the most out of this stunning city.

Try buying the local cut fruits from local vendors for a resonable prices and eat while looking around. Local icecream is also fantastic.

Really nice and romantic atmosphere. I spent there one day and despite the heat, I was charmed by the city.

Great place for a stroll round. Something to eat, bit of shopping, a drink or two, the historic centre of Verona make it a pleasure. One of the nicest places I have ever been. We only came for the day, but absolutely loved it.
