Verona is one of Italy’s most romantic cities, thanks to the fact that Shakespeare chose this city to set his romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet.

While the couple were purely fictional, there are many attractions which claim by local legend to have once set the scene for Romeo and Juliet. For example, there’s Juliet’s House, where we’ll find the balcony Romeo is said to have serenaded his love, as well as the Basilica di San Zeno where the two were supposedly married in secret. There’s also Juliet’s tomb, which is said to be located within San Francesco al Corso church.

Aside from this, there are many other attractions to enjoy in Verona, such as the Piazza delle Erbe, which was once the site of the Roman Forum in the city, and Lamberti Tower.

There’s a Roman Theatre and Archaeological Museum to enjoy as well, and the impressive Verona Cathedral.

We were expecting a coach with more leg room, so it was extremely difficult to relax and sleep, the toilet, most of the time did not have any water to wash your hands, the floor was sticky under foot and it had a bad smell in there. The guide/drivers did not give their passengers enough information on when and where we would be stopping and we expected them, on our day trips out, to have more information on the area. One of the drivers, was a big personality, which he forced on us, most of the time, telling stories and personal details, which we felt was crossing professional boundaries and he needed to remember and consider that most of the customers were elderly. Hotel was clean and the management and staff were excellent, but our room was on the small size, especially the bathroom.

The excess coach was a let down,very cramped & little legroom for over night travel. The hotel & staff were excellent but my double room was only big enough for one person, all of the excursions were excellent.
