Located about 100 mi/165 km east of Milan and 75 mi/120 km west of Venice, Verona, Italy, is nestled along the banks of the Adige River, a short drive from the Valpolicella wine region. It is the setting for Shakespeare's plays Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentleman of Verona. A commercial and political center in Roman times, Verona boasts the open-air Arena theater, the city's most important testimony to its past. After Venice, Verona is Veneto's second-most-popular city for tourism, and it also attracts international visitors to its annual trade shows at the Veronafiere fairgrounds.
