Verona has one of the nicest historic centers of any city in Italy. We took out the video camera one random day and just started shooting whatever appeared before us in the landscape, tacking it together a few days later. The result was a pretty interesting and romantic video, if I do say so myself!
Of course you can always plan a trip to see Verona for yourself--and perhaps see an opera in the Roman era Verona Arena.
Verona has one of the most evocative historic centers in all of Italy. Just stroll around to see it, the river surrounds it so you can't really go "out of bounds" unless you fancy a swim.
Verona, from the famous piazze like Piazza delle Erbe filmed from the top of the Lamberti Tower to the courtyard of Juliet's house, from the Roman arena to the excitement, day and night, around Piazza Bra. This is Verona as we saw it in October.
