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.

Many find Verona to be one of the most romantic cities in the world. At every turn, visitors are reminded of its Roman Empire origins and connection to Shakespeare. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Verona also self-identifies as the citta dell'amore—the city of love.
