One of Northern Italy’s most beautiful cities, Verona will set your heart aflutter as you explore its most celebrated, crowd-pleasing attraction – Casa di Giulietta. Pay a visit to the house that’s said to be the former home of Juliet, heroine of Shakespeare’s tear-jerking play about star-crossed lovers. You can even catch a whimsical glimpse of a replica of the balcony Romeo stood under night after night to woo his sweetheart. All flights to Verona from the UK land at Verona Villafranca Airport, located southwest of the city.
The best months to avoid the crowds and get your hands on cheap tickets to Verona are October-November and February-March, but you can always bag a bargain on return flights to Verona during peak season if you plan far enough in advance. To bask in the warmth of the sun you should visit during the sizzling hot summer months of July and August, when Verona is brimming with outdoor fun and festivals. It’s also the best time to ooh and aah at a spellbinding opera performance at the show-stopping Arena di Verona.
Your dream of a holiday to Verona can come true in just a few short hours as there are a multitude of direct flights on offer from airports all across the UK. Monarch Airlines offers flights to Verona from London Gatwick and Manchester. British Airways and EasyJet zip down from London Gatwick, while Ryanair jets south from Birmingham and London Stansted. Flybe departs from Cardiff and Southampton, and British budget airline Jet2 takes off from Edinburgh, Nottingham and Leeds. It couldn’t be easier to get to Verona – you’ll touch down for your southern Italian sojourn in less than two and a half hours from all UK airports.
You can get from Verona Villafranca Airport to the city centre in a jiffy – it’s only 6 miles away. The Aerobus departs three times per hour and will get you to Porta Nuova Central Station in 15 minutes. A single-trip ticket costs just €6. Less expensive than a conventional taxi, and more convenient than the bus, is the door-to-door shuttle service, which you should book online in advance. If you prefer to travel by cab, it’s only a 15-minute taxi ride to the heart of Verona, and the journey will set you back around €20. Or you can always rent a car from the airport if you’d rather see the sights on your own terms.
Every city in Italy has its own unique specialities and flavours and Verona is no exception. Don’t miss the chance to tantalise your taste buds with some of Verona’s mouthwatering signature dishes. Try the bigoli con le sardelle (fresh egg pasta served with sardine sauce) or pastisada de caval (horse-meat stew served with polenta). Pair the dishes with some of the region’s wonderful wines for the ultimate Italian experience.
