Verona Pocket Guide takes you straight to the heart of Veneto's second city. With its rose-hued architecture, cobbled streets lined with stylish shops and piazza ringed by relaxing cafes, this city undoubtedly qualifies as the 'fair Verona' of Romeo and Juliet. And, whilst getting a snapshot of the fabled (but unfortunately fake) balcony may be on your list of must-dos, there's much more to enjoy; museums, shopping and a night of opera in the Roman Arena is a must for many.
Verona highlights include: atmospheric piazzas including dei Signori and piazza Bra, home to Verona's famous landmark the Roman Arena, and delle Erbe, with its colourful fruit and vegetable market; via Mazzini, off Piazza Bra and is one of Italy's smartest shopping streets with Louis Vuitton, Versace, Cartier and Armani calling to splurgers and window-shoppers alike; the Roman Arena has staged the summer opera festival since 1913 - 44 pink marble tiers seating up to 20,000 opera lovers with those arriving extra early trying to bag the cheapest, unreserved seats; and, out of town trips include Vicenza and Lake Garda. This title is perfect for pleasure-seeking city breakers wanting to quickly pinpoint the city's most entertaining highlights and decide what to see and do in a limited time. It contains clear maps to enable fast orientation and full-colour illustrated pages to pinpoint the very best in shopping, sightseeing, eating and drinking - plus great ideas for low-budget entertainment too.
It spans a wide range of destinations, including those served by budget airlines. It includes practical listings to suit varied budgets and tastes. Imaginative suggestions reveal each city's hidden gems.
Compact format quickly locates the top must-see and do attractions. It also contains full-colour maps and photographs.
