This week’s Guess Where? photo was Verona, and what an appealing place this city turned out to be for the Tour Italy Now community. So the question is “what to do in Verona?”In fact, as we post this, you’re still clicking up a storm over on Facebook about this magical city made famous around the world by William Shakespeare and his play “Romeo and Juliet.” Having never been to Verona myself, yours truly decided to do a little clicking around and start a list of things I’d love-love to do when I get to Verona. And please notice I wrote “when” not “if!” I’m getting there, for sure. I hope you will be, too!
We’re going to make these short and sweet and let you discover them, as desktop/laptop travelers in anticipation of your next Italy vacation, with links from the Verona Tourism website!
1. Must-See: Romeo and Juliet
Apparently the Casa di Giuletta gets lots of giggling middle and high school students, so be prepared for that adolescent ambiance and enjoy!
Wow I’d do my darnedest to see a performance here.
3. See-What-Happens: The streets of Verona.
Walk and discover, with the above itinerary or a variation of your own.
