Things to know before you go to Verona

Where is Verona?

Weather in Verona

Verona is a beautiful city all year round; however, the winters get cold, dipping as low as -1 degrees Celcius. This means summers can be dry and hot, reaching up to 29 degrees Celcius or so.


How to get to Verona

Best Verona Transport

Car: Driving in Italy can be exhilarating, exciting and downright scary; however, if you are anything like me and would like a little bit of excitement, then there is no better way to get around this beautiful city.

Arena Di Verona

Juliet’s Balcony

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.”
Oh Sorry! I got a little carried away, swept up in it all. So whether you believe in romance or not, this historic place is worth a visit. There will be loads of people lining up to touch (Yes, I am not kidding) the breast of Juliet’s statue.

I know I did it without even knowing why I did it (following the crowd of people like sheep, I guess). You can also pay a small fee to stand on Juliet’s balcony if you wish. There are loads of shops with Romeo and Juliet memorabilia to take home for die-hard fans!

  • Paula Barreca Barnes

    So 17 years ago, my husband and I set off with our little family in tow, embarking on a short-term assignment in Taiwan. Although without any knowledge of expat life or the Taiwanese culture, we took the chance and decided this would be an exciting little adventure; little did we know it changed the direction of our lives forever.
