If for Saint Valentine’s Day you want to spend a weekend with your partner in the ultimate romantic location, there is only one obvious choice: Verona, the city where Shakespeare set the most famous romance of all times: that of Romeo and Juliet. The myth of the two lovers lives again in the medieval Juliet’s House, but also in the ancient squares of the city, its lanes, courtyards, fascinating views and along the meanders of river Adige. To mark Saint Valentine’s Day, this year the city of Verona is organizing the event Verona in Love: from 12 to 16 February 2020, from Piazza Bra to Juliet’s House, the most evocative corners of the city will turn red with decorations and lighting the city will also host markets of local handicrafts (arranged in a classic heart shape), tasting sessions, guided walks for couples, on a trail of discovery in pursuit of the mysteries and legends of Romeo and Juliet, themed dinners and many other romantic surprises.
