Take your time to wind around pretty piazzas and Renaissance buildings, then you’ll soon reach Juliet’s house. Underneath the famous balcony, you can leave notes. Classic Italian restaurants are around every corner, and local Veneto wine is often paired with traditional dishes. There’s an opera festival at the spectacular setting of the ancient Verona Arena during summer too.
Hit the beach
With breathtaking mountains and waterfronts, Lake Garda is Italy’s largest lake and is only around 30km from Verona Airport. This picturesque area also packs in a few cosy beaches, so you can pitch up by pebbles and sand to relax and enjoy the views. The towns themselves showcase shops and eateries, and there are vineyards nearby.
Meander through the mountains
Take to the dramatic mountains of Lake Garda and breathe in the fresh country air. Brooding beyond the glistening water, this rugged range is a haven for adventurers. Biking, hiking, horse riding – explore at your own pace and take in the glorious Alpine scenery. Slopes thick with woodland, craggy limestone peaks and flourishing olive groves unfold before you.
