Verona in Love for Valentine's Day

Verona in Love for Valentine's Day
15 Jan 2014

Star-crossed lovers will catch cheap flights to the Italian city of Verona next month to celebrate Valentine's Day. 

From the 13th until 16th of February, 'Verona in Love' will feature a programme of events, activities and shows dedicated to love and emotions. 

'Un cuore da scoprire' ('A heart to discover') will see a traditional street market set up in Piazza dei Signori, where couples will be able to taste Veronesi products, buy handmade gifts and enjoy music, theatre and art.

On St Valentine's Day itself, 'Un cuore di baci' ('A heart kisses') will see lovers engage in a one-minute smooch in the piazza before a thousand coloured hearts will be released into the air. 

One of these will be marked Hai vinto! ('You've won!') and the person who grabs it will win a gift. 

Verona's most famous couple, of course, is Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare's tragic lovers. Visitors can explore key locations from the play, including Juliet's house. ADNFCR-408-ID-801682487-ADNFCR
