Explore the Verona of Romeo and Juliet

William Shakespeare is one of the most famous poets of the world and, we can say, also one of the fathers of the English language. He wrote a lot of poems, dramas, and plays during his life, that is still mostly unknown. For instance, few people know that even if a lot of his works are set abroad (Danmark, Italy), he never travelled outside fo England.

Description

This Shakespearean walking tour will take you to Verona, one of the most beautiful cities in Italy, where the romantic tale of Romeo and Juliet took its shape. During this real time tour, we will see the places that are connected to the epic tale and talk about the history of the city, the families Capulet and Montagues (that really lived in Verona in the middle ages), and of course, William Shakespeare.

We will begin at Piazza Bra, and then we will walk next to the Arena and the Roman Amphitheatre and reach the point where the fight between Mercutio and Tybalt was set. Finally, we will go to the medieval heart of the city and visit the courtyard with the famous balcony which many believe was Juliet's house. We will end the tour next to a place that is believed to be Romeo's house.

William Shakespeare is one of the most famous poets of the world and, we can say, also one of the fathers of the English language.

For instance, few people know that, even though a lot of his works are set abroad (Denmark, Italy...), he never traveled outside of England!

I am a professional guide in Verona and have been in this profession since 2012. I am passionate about my city, its art, history, legends, and tales. I have also been acting in a theatre for many years, from which I developed a passion for Shakespeare. I have investigated about Romeo and Juliet story and I discovered a lot of interesting things that I want to tell you!

    It was a memorable trip. Have gained a lot of information from the guide. It was one of the most amazing trip that I have been to and yet more a memorable one to feel the trip being online. The guide was at his best with information, answering to every question and having an all round knowledge of the place. It was amazing trip!
    Hope to have another opportunity as this.
    Thank you and God bless each one who worked through, for and in it.
