In fair Verona, where we lay our scene for this week’s Pictures of Italy gallery over 2,000 years of romance and drama have graced the banks of the River Adige. A UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to a remarkable number of well-preserved antiquity, medieval, and Renaissance monuments, Verona is among the best examples of how Italy just gets it right.
A vibrant combination of fairs, plays, and concerts gives Verona a balance and elegance to the Ancient monuments in the city. If Shakespeare were with us today, I bet he would still place Romeo and Juliet in Verona.
