Verona is located in Northern Italy, about an hour train ride away from Florence. It is the historical setting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and where the movie Letters to Juliet was filmed. Verona has a medieval old town that surrounds the Adige river and lots of shops and restaurants. You can visit Casa di Giulietta, a gothic-style home from the 1300s that was an inspiration for Shakespeare and is said to be Juliet’s home. Just like the movie, hundreds of people visit this area seeking love advice from Juliet and leave notes behind. For a small fee, you can go onto the balcony that overlooks Juliet’s courtyard and visit the museum. Verona also has the Verona Arena, which is an ancient Roman amphitheater that still hosts concerts.
