From Verona A backdrop for an ill-fated love
If you’re a fan of Juliet, one must visit the backdrop for the play’s most famous love scene - Juliet’s balcony. Other than the tale of an ill-fated love, Verona is a destination of art, opera, and urban architecture. Take time to go up the lift to the Lamberti tower and see the sweeping views of the red rooftops. Order some gelato and take a brisk stroll down the infamous shopping avenue, Corso Porta Borsari. The real heartstopper is the entrance to the street. Its gate is called the ‘Gate of Borsari’ - made with limestone, corinthian capitals, and 2 pediments that predates the 1st century A.D. Abundant in Roman ruins, Verona is full of history, charm, and beauty.
To Perugia Legendarily Romantic
Founded by the Etruscans around the 6th century BC, the city was legendary amongst Roman authors by the time it was assimilated into the Republic. Sitting 1,640 ft above sea level, the old town is partly surrounded two sets of walls. The medieval wall is still largely intact, and has several entrances, such as the Cassero di Porta Sant'Angelo. The inner, Etruscan wall, was built using massive boulders. A few remains of the Roman era still survive, including an amphitheatre outside Porta Marzia, and what is likely a mausoleum under St. Peter’s bell tower. The Piazza IV Novembre, with its magnificent Maggiore Fountain, is the best way to experience the essence of the city. Facing the square is the 13th century Palazzo dei Priori, which houses the National Gallery of Umbria, while the facade of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo boasts the pulpit where Saint Bernardino used to preach.
