Verona, a magical city near Venice in Italy’s Veneto region. Wandering the marble streets this summer, I found all of Verona to be proudly beautiful, with the ability to turn something as ordinary as a shop selling deli meats into a work of art.
History. Culture. Travel. Italy.

Though it’s hard to have a preference for one Italian town over another, Verona is a special place. Despite the throng of romantics at “Casa di Guiletta” the rest of the town maintains its cozy, intimate self. Glad you enjoyed it!
Verona is in my top 5 best cities of Italy! It really has that something special. Food and wine aren’t too bad either 😉
I hope to spend more time in Verona some day. Tell me what are the other four cities!?!
Rome/Venice (they share a spot!), Pisa (hometown – has to be on there), Orvieto and Siracusa. I like this game! 🙂 What are your 5 favorite cities? It is a tough list to compile and still so much to see, so it might change 😉
Ah, really tough to make a list of just five, especially since I’ve seen so much less of Italy than you, and I love all the places I’ve seen so far! For me: Florence, Verona, Poglinano a Mare, Bellagio/Menaggio/Varenna. For smaller towns, there’s Fiesole and Monteriggioni. And Capri! Impossible to choose just five. 🙂
Verona is lovely! I went to the opera in the Arena and it was magical 🙂 Will look out for this little shop when I visit next!
That must have been an incredible experience! I hope you find the shop, I think it was close to Casa di Giulietta, but I’m not certain. Thanks for being here!
This little deli looks like something from a story book. I love it.
Italian friends have spoken of Verona and how beautiful it is . It’s on the list. 😉
I highly recommend it, Bonnie. I wanted to stay for a couple of nights, but only had time for a day trip, which was really easy from Florence!
