How to reach Verona, the romantic city in Veneto? Let's find out together.
Verona is a city known throughout the world for being the setting for one of William Shakespeare's most moving and beloved tragedies, Romeo and Juliet. Indeed, great attraction for tourists to the beautiful town holds the legendary Juliet's balcony, where lovers can leave a note or phrase that is worth to them as a good luck charm for their romance.
This is a most tender practice, which is also somewhat reminiscent of the Japanese custom of writing one's wishes on strips of paper to be hung on bamboo branches during the summer festival of Tanabata, or Feast of Stars in Love.
Let us also not forget that the entire historic center of Verona has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its unique architecture and romantic and wonderful spots overlooking the Adige River.
Additional point of interest not to miss a visit to magical Verona is the fantastic Arena, a facility where events related to opera and lyrical music are periodically scheduled, as well as concerts.
Verona is easily accessible in various ways and, due to its geographical location, can also be chosen as a starting point for exploring the whole region. Let's go together to see how to reach this incredible city!
How to get to Verona by train
For those deciding to use the train to get to Verona, the reference station is Verona Porta Nuova. The station is well served and connections are frequent, allowing you to choose without particular problems the time you prefer to arrive. The station is very close to the historic center, which can also be reached on foot, but of course buses and cabs are also available for those who need them.
How to get to Verona by plane
If you prefer to travel by plane or are departing from a location outside of Italy, Verona also has its own airport, Valerio Catullo, located about 12 kilometers from the city center. There are shuttles leaving from the Verona airport, whose destination, however, is the Porta Nuova station, from which, as we have already seen, it is very easy to get around to reach one's destination in the center of the city. Usually, from the airport to the station, the shuttle ride takes about 20 minutes.
How to reach Verona by car
If you choose to travel by car, the highway exits to keep in mind are Verona Est and Verona Sud on the A4 and Verona Nord on the A22. If the purpose of your visit to Verona is related to an event held in the fairgrounds, the recommended exit is Verona Sud.
