So why do we call Verona the City of Romance? The answer is easy. It’s the setting of the famous love story of Shakespeare’s’ Romeo and Juliet.
If ever there was a romantic place to ask your loved one to marry you, it is Verona and in particularly, at Juliet’s balcony. (Ever seen the movie ‘Letters to Juliet’? I think you need to watch the movie: So romantic.)
Shakespeare never actually visited Verona and his characters in Romeo & Juliet never really existed. But Casa di Giulietta (Juliet’s House) is one of Verona’s main tourist attractions. The balcony overlooking the small courtyard is a famous Instagram spot and everyone in love, stops here.
During the week of Valentine’s Day, the Verona in Love festival is held in the heart of the historic center of the Scaligero capital. As they say “If you love him, bring him to Verona”.
So if you’re planning to propose, a visit to Verona might be an awesome idea. But if you’re planning a wedding, why not do it in Italy? I’m not going to say anything else. Just visit Sposami A Verona for everything you need to arrange the perfect wedding in Italy.
I think 2 to 3 days would be enough. However should you wish to explore further, book 4 days. This will allow you enough time to do things at a relaxed pace and not in a hurry. Also take the time to experience the local cuisine (and taste real Risotto) at the local restaurants. In my opinion attending an opera in Italy is a special must-do experience for all opera lovers.

Apart from the connection to Romeo and Juliet’s story, the roman architecture and the beauty of the city, it is also close to Lake Garda. Lago di Garda (Lake Garda) is only 35 km from Verona and it is stunningly beautiful. This is also the reason why we recommend hiring a car while you’re there. You need to explore the surrounding areas and places like Lake Garda. (If you’re depending on public transport and transfers, the travel to only one destination from Verona can take up to 3 hours. Depending on where you are going. But by car it is just so much faster and easier.)
