Facts about Verona
Verona is a city in Veneto in the northeast of Italy. The capital of the province has around 260,000 inhabitants and lies on the Adige River, the second longest river in Italy. The best time to visit Verona is in spring and early autumn, when temperatures are mild and there are fewer tourists in the city. You can reach Verona in many different ways. The international airport Aeroporto di Verona is located about five km southwest of the city centre and the railway station Porte Nuova near the old town can be reached several times a day.History of Verona
The city was founded in pre-Christian times by the Rhaetians and Euganeans and was from 89 BC under a Roman colony. In the course of the Napoleonic wars, Verona fell to Austria in 1797 and only in 1866 did Verona belong to the Kingdom of Italy. The past has strongly influenced the cityscape and the historical monuments can still be admired today. The city impresses with its wealth of historical testimonies from different historical stages. Verona is world-famous not only for its precious heirlooms, such as the Roman amphitheatre, where opera performances still take place today, but also for the city of love and romance. The reason for this is the dramatic love tragedy "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare, who chose Verona as the venue for his play.
