Verona, a town standing on the banks of the river Adige, on the slopes of the Monti Lessini, owes its fame mainly to two circumstances: the first is that in its old town centre it has a perfectly preserved monumental artistic structure of Roman times, the Arena; the second, of a more literary character, is that it was chosen as the setting of one of the most famous works of the English playwright, William Shakespeare, “Romeo and Juliet” (all the locations of the tragedy can still be visited).
