As one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, Verona provides the setting for an unforgettable city break or multi centre holiday. There is a reason Shakespeare placed star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in Verona - it's the city of love. Verona was the real life film set of one of the most romantic love stories of all time and some of the highlights of this charming city include perhaps Italy's most famous balcony, Casa di Guiletta (Juliet's balcony), Juliet's tomb and the town to which Romeo was banished, Mantua.

Verona is a great city for wandering the cobbled streets, admiring the designer shops and stopping off in one of the various piazzas and watching the world go by.

In Piazza delle Erbe, you can explore the colourful market or sample some of the region's food. For art lovers, Verona's City Art Museum, housed in the 14-thcentury Castel vecchio, offers a great collection of medieval sculptures and Renaissance paintings. No city break in Verona would be complete without climbing the 238 steps to the top of the Lamberti tower, rewarded by a breathtaking view over the rooftops.

Verona is home to one of the most important open-air theatres in the world, Arena di Verona. If you are travelling over the opera season, you would be crazy not to enjoy one of the performances.

Verona is much more than just pasta. Dishes from Northern Italy are based a lot around rice, in particular Vialone Nano. There won't be a menu in Verona that doesn't contain risotto. It also won't be uncommon to watch the locals tucking into a Polenta, a thick cream made with corn flour, enjoyed hot and served with cured meats and cheese.

A traditional Veronese restaurant is called an osteria. Originally serving wine, the emphasis is a lot more around the food these days. Verona's medieval town centre, Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza Bra have an endless choice of Osterie, and trattorie and pizzeria.

Verona has its fair share of medieval and Renaissance art and culture, as well claiming to have more Roman ruins than any Italian city. Verona was a key Roman settlement due to its location on both the east-west and north-south trade routes - visible still with the city's ancient gates and imposing amphitheatre. The renowned amphitheatre, familiar from countless images, was built in AD30 and much of the original arena is still preserved. Since Verona was founded in the 1st century B.C., a remarkable number of monuments are still intact, landing it on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 2000.

For fabulous views over the city, visit the Torre dei Lamberti. Be careful, though - the bells toll loudly every half-hour. Alternatively, treat yourself to lunch, dinner or an aperitif on the roof terrace of the Hotel Due Torri.
