A few notes on the Eco-Tour stops
– Verona – our base during the tour…
So splendid was medieval Verona that its reputation alone inspired Shakespeare to set two plays here (Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentlemen of Verona).
It is one of the main tourist destinations in northern Italy, because of its artistic heritage and several annual fairs, shows, and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient Roman amphitheater.
The city has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because of its urban structure and architecture.
