Visitors to Verona looking for a self guided walking tour of the city are advised to head to the nearest tourist kiosk and pick up a leaflet entitled 'Passeggiando per Verona' or 'Walking through Verona'.
The leaflet details 4 routes through the historical center and is designed to make sure you don't miss a thing. It is also a lot lighter than a leaden guidebook.
The tourist points are located at: Via degli Alpini 9, Piazza XXV Aprile (Porta Nuova Railway Station) and Viale del Lavoro near the exhibition halls.
Don't forget that every first Sunday of the month entrance to the Museo Maffeiano, Castelvecchio, the Roman Theater and the Tomb of Giuletta is free.
Not forgetting, of course, that Verona is also the home of Juliet's house of Romeo and Juliet fame and the inspiration behind Shakespeare's famous romance.
The amazingly located Roman amphitheater right in the heart of Verona is the setting for the traditional open air operas throughout the summer and tickets are always in demand.
The full list of the summer performances in the Anfiteatro Arena, Verona and can also be found at www.arena.it.
The fun usually begins at the end of June and lasts until the first week of September.
There are typically 4 major productions, and at least two of 'Nabucco', 'Aida' and 'La Traviata'. Each rotate during the week so you can catch them all in one extended visit. All performances start at 21.00.
