Verona is a city located in Northern Italy popularized by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet – It is here where the story was set. It is located about an hour away from the more popular city of Venice but it is still a wonderful stop over with tons to see and do! I have to say – I arrived here without having any clue what to expect and the plan was to stay for just one day before heading to Austria but I ended up staying for three more days as I fell in love with the city instantly.
