Things to do in Verona

Verona is a city located at the north eastern part of Italy.  It is also a main tourist destination because of its heritage, fairs and historical architectures.  During my visit, we went there during the summer and there were crowds but not as much as Florence.  I enjoyed eating the food, looking at the architectures, and the warm weather.  I have added it on my places to visit again.  Here are some of the things I recommend to do when you visit Verona.

5 Things to do in Verona:

1.  Juliet’s house (Casa di Giuletta)

Visit the famous Juliet’s house (Casa di Giuletta).  While there is no proof that this was the actual location, many visitors are drawn to this place to see the famous balcony from the Romeo and Juliet story.
