How are you? We are back from a short break in Verona, a city in northern Italy which besides being beautiful is considered the cradle of lovers. Does it remind you of something?
That's right, the city of Romeo and Juliet. It is not the first time that we visit Verona , but this time we went back there to have one of the most recommended experiences: watch a performance at the Roman Arena, outstanding heritage that history has given to the city.
Of course we didn't choose randomly the performance that we watched: it was the modern opera of Romeo and Juliet. Since it was live streamed on Rai Due, you can watch it here: Romeo & Giulietta - Ama e cambia il mondo
To stay on the same track and make the whole experience in Verona even more unique, we decided to stay in one of the two hotels in the city with a room view on the famous balcony of the Capulet family, where Romeo went to woo his sweetheart.
"Le suite di Giulietta" despite the price, well above the average, is highly recommended especially for those who want to impress their better half and live at least one night in a dream location . The room was delightful with lots of giant bathtub in the room and chromotherapy, while the breakfast in the room was awesome.
As two faithful gourmands, we cannot forget to recommend you a place to pamper your palate . We had lunch at a restaurant which is awarded for the best tiramisu in the world: "Trattoria Al pompiere". In this historic restaurant, as well as with the renowned dessert, chef Marco Dandrea will surprise you even with his main dishes. Strongly recommended: the "Guancia di manzo brasata nell'Amarone con purè di sedano" and the "Ravioli con cipolla ramata di Montoro e fonduta di Bitto stagionato 3 anni". They have a very large choice of wines the local red wine "Amarone della Valpolicella" is not to be missed. We have chosen one of the house Mythos of 2006, truly unique.
We wish you a nice weekend and as we learned from the opera in the Arena: "Ama e cambia il mondo, ama senza confini" (Love and the world changes, love without boundaries).
