Situated in northern Italy's sun-kissed Veneto region, Verona looks like something from a storybook, with its winding streets, romantic courtyards, and spice-toned terracotta-topped abodes. While many visit the 14th-century residence dubbed 'Juliet's House', with its quaint courtyard and little stone balcony, the city's real centerpiece is the Verona Arena.

Dating back to the 1st century, the vast Roman amphitheater serves as a venue during the city's yearly summer opera festival. Beyond its charm, Verona boasts a flourishing art scene, great locally produced food and wine, and nearby beauty spot Lake Garda. And, as if that wasn't enough, Venice is within easy reach.
