The cities are arcaded meaning you can comfortably walk around regardless of whether it’s raining.  The two towers are one of the biggest points of interest in the city. Weather permitting, you can climb just under 500 steps to the top of the tower. Once there you will be treated with a beautiful panoramic view of the city and beyond.  As…

    Ever since I first read Romeo and Juliette at age 14, I have longed to visit Verona and last year I was lucky enough to visit. Now I know Shakespeare probably never even went to Italy and he only set his play their because Italian culture was the hot trend of Renaissance England BUT. It is such a romantic beautiful city and visiting with my boyfriend was perfect. So when you think of Verona obviously you think of Romeo and Juliet; going to visit Juliet’s balcony seems to be an obvious attraction.
