Villas in Verona - Romantic Holidays in Italy
Located in the Veneto region and filled with dozens of stunning historical buildings, it really is no wonder that Verona was named as a UNESCO Heritage Site in the year 2000. The Romans certainly made their mark on Verona, leaving behind an impressive theatre, several arches and bridges (the Ponte di Pietra being a particular highlight) and Italy's third-largest amphitheatre, the Verona Arena. Dwarfed by only the Roman Colosseum and the arena in Capua, this well-preserved architectural masterpiece could seat up to 25,000 blood-thirsty spectators in its hey-day. These days, the blood-lust has been replaced by more divine pleasures, with the arena frequently hosting opera during the pleasant summer months. A classy evening activity after which you surely will return dreamily to your holiday accommodation in Verona.
If the beautiful scenery of Verona has got your heart soaring, try a romantic stroll along the winding River Adige. Popular amongst couples, this riverside walk offers a great city vista and leads towards the town centre and all of the delights it has to offer. A meal in one of Verona's excellent restaurants will be almost inevitable, once the mouth-watering aroma of freshly baked pizza wafts your way, you will be powerless to resist. The tiramisu alone will provide dessert-lovers with a very tempting reason to return to Verona. If movement is proving to be a difficult prospect after indulging in all that rich Italian food, don't despair.
