Visit Verona – the city of Romeo & Juliet. It’s a beautiful town, lots of small alleyways and tiny streets with lovely shops. Definitely go to the opera! Insider tip: book the “cheap” seats where you sit on the stones and bring your own wine (careful – you need to fill the wine into plastic bottles – no glass allowed!) and cheese or snacks to enjoy while watching the opera! And prior to going into the arena, enjoy a drink (or two or three…) at the cute little bar, just 150m away in the Via Alberto Mario, directly opposite the Hotel Bologna. They have a fantastic Aperol Spritz, served in fancy marmelade glasses!
