60-second guide to Verona airport

in its own head

"With our unique and breathtaking range of artworks and monuments you'll fall in love with Verona at first sight. Hey, it worked for Romeo and Juliet!"

but more realistically

Verona is indeed a very romantic and amiable city, and few places can boast such a plethora of stunning Roman and Renaissance architecture.

the vibe

Verona is quite often referred to as a mini Rome, a fairly accurate comparison, although it's far less touristy and bustling and, with its squares and narrow roads, has an intimate, almost cosy quality.

the natives

The locals take pride in their picturesque heritage city and love to make the most of its rural surroundings too. Does romance course through their veins? You'll have to find out that yourself.

the weather

Summer in Verona can be very hot and expect the odd thunderstorm. Winters, meanwhile, are very cold but with bright blue skies and plenty of snow just outside the city, it's a fine skiing location.

the local speciality

Equestrians, brace yourselves: they're quite keen on eating horse over here. Try the gnocchi with horsemeat ragu or Pastissada, a traditional horsemeat stew.

the celebrity

George Clooney is always inviting celebrities to his nearby Lake Como pad, so there's a chance you'll cross skis with a Hollywood megastar.

did you know?

Shakespeare set another of his plays in the Italian city, the comedy The Two Gentlemen Of Verona - but never actually visited the place himself.

they say

“Founded by the Romans in the 1st century A.D., the northern Italian city of Verona is dotted with pretty palazzi, elegant squares and medieval gems.” – Frommer’s

Just the place for serious skiers. This is not a resort, more a skiing fraternity so expect a low-key apres ski scene and an early rise for the freshest snow.

And now for something completely different. There's nowhere quite like Venice, so grab a gondola and max out your credit card in the city of romance, quickly, before it sinks.
