Luxury Verona Holidays

A riverside city with romance at its heart


The setting of Shakespeare’s greatest love story is definitely romantic – but you don’t need to be a star-crossed lover to fall for Verona’s charms.

The city’s grand esplanades and piazzas are punctuated by Gothic cathedrals, Renaissance gardens and an impressive amphitheatre that rivals Rome’s Colosseum. There’s also a dramatic Roman theatre set on a hillside, with an attached archaeological museum showcasing ancient mosaics, sculptures and coins. And if you do want to see a bit of that Shakespearean heritage, head for Via Cappello – home to Casa di Giulietta (Juliet’s house).  

If you fancy taking a breather from sightseeing, check out the gardens at Palazzo Giusti. They’re among the loveliest in Italy – think elegant cypress trees, floating water lilies, ethereal statues and Renaissance fountains. Verona’s also a bit of a hotspot for shopping, with dozens of boutiques and designer stores lining the historic streets.

Make sure you save a couple of hours to wander around Verona’s amphitheatre. The small entry fee is well worth it to get an understanding of the arena’s sheer size – and you get a fantastic view across the city from the highest seats.

When to go

Summertime in Verona sees the mercury hitting the high 20s – perfect for dining on restaurant terraces and watching al fresco opera at the amphitheatre. There is a chance of summer storms, but these don’t tend to last long and are often great for reducing the humidity. Spring and autumn are spot on for sightseers, with average temperatures between 17 and 25°C.

Visa Information

British citizens do not currently require a visa to visit Italy.


When you dine out in Italy, you will generally be charged a coperto (cover charge), which is for the bread, tablecloth, cutlery, etc. Tipping in Italy is not customary, but is always appreciated.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
