In fact, it is really impossible not to fall in love with this city and myself, when I go there, I do not know which beaty see.
However, in its surroundings there are really beautiful cities that should be visited too
The first of these cities is very close. Verona is far from Venice just one hour by train. It is a city extremely interesting and inextricably linked to the story of Romeo and Juliet told by Shakespeare. Verona is also famous for the Arena, the Roman amphitheater where wonderful lyric concerts are organized every summer. To visit it one day is enough. The ideal is to visit it by bike or on food: the historic center is pedestrianized.

A few kilometers from Verona there is the main Italian lake, the Garda Lake. Here there are several small villages, the most beautiful of which is Sirmione. To enter in its historic center you have to cross the Scaliger castle. The particularity of this country is to be surrounded by the lake on two sides. It is also linked to the Roman poet Catullus, who loved to stay on holiday here and was the owner of a villa.
