Why Verona

A unique heritage city in an excellent location

Verona was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 2000, and many ancient, medieval and renaissance monuments can still be seen in the historic centre. A highly liveable, culturally dynamic, welcoming city, Verona is located in a strategic position near Lake Garda and the Lessinia mountains, within easy reach of other important artistic cities in Italy such as Venice, Milan, Bologna and Florence.
