Vinitaly 2017, the off-site event in the historical centre of Verona

The exhibition doesn’t take place just at the expo centre, but it involves all the city of Verona to offer to the visitor a complete entertainment.
The prestigious restaurants of the Shakespearian city, in fact, are the main character of “Vinitaly and the City”, the off-site event where famous chefs propose pairings between wine and regional products.
The heart of Verona is just few minutes far from the Expo Centre, thus it is compulsory to carve out some hours to visit the city of “Romeo and Juliet”, UNESCO historical and cultural heritage.
Once in the city centre, in Piazza Bra, you will be welcome by the imposing Verona Arena, the roman amphitheatre built between the I and III century, the ludic roman architecture par excellence, preserved in an excellent way thanks to the continuous refurbishments. Few steps away, Piazza delle Erbe, the living room of the people from Verona, host the palace of the Municipality, the Lamberti Tower and in the middle the Fountain of Madonna di Verona.
A visit to the Juliet’s house is compulsory. Here you can admire and go up on the famous Juliet’s balcony where the girl look out to talk with her Romeo in the most known scene of the Shakespearian comedy.
To conclude the visit to the historical centre, we advise you Castelvecchio, with the famous Arche Scaligere, the bridge on the Adige that offers breathtaking views on the river, above all at sunset.
