TRAVEL: Verona


One of the cities that had been on my must-visit list for so long, was Verona. After my holiday at Lake Garda I can finally cross it from my bucket list. We were in Verona for one day and I feel this was sufficient to see the main attractions and do some shopping. We went by car, traffic was not too busy and we parked right underneath the Roman arena. 

The Roman Arena (picture 1 and 6) is one of the top attractions of the city. A couple of years ago I already visited the Colosseum in Rome. If you have been to the Colosseum before going to the Arena in Verona, the Arena might disappoint a bit. Somehow the horror of the gladiator fights is not really brought across to the visitor in my opinion.

The romantic souls amongst us of course know Verona from the story of Romeo and Juliet. Juliet's home (picture 3, 4 and 5) is right in the centre of the city. A picture with the statue of Juliet and a visit to the famous balcony are some must-do's.

The sweet tooth's have to go to Galeteria Venchi or Pasticceria Flego. Venchi (picture 2 and 7) offers everything from ice cream to mixed fruit and from waffles to frozen fruit ice creams. I opted for the latter and the kiwi taste was to die for. The window from Pasticceria Flego (picture 9) immediately caught my eye displaying some super delicious macaron's. 

Verona is also a shopper's paradise: with high end stores such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana. Chain stores such as H&M and Zara are not that popular in Italy but you can find both in Verona, which proves that it's one of the most important cities of Italy. My inside tip: Italian brands such as Atos Lombardini, Patrizia Pepe and Pinko are about €100 cheaper, on top of that there was also a 50% sale. I brought home a gorgeous pink maxi dress from Atos Lombardini. Can't wait to show you!

Q: Have you ever been to Verona?
