“Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…” In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Verona is indeed the setting for a tragic love story which has echoed through the ages. This weekend, hundreds of years later, there will be drama of a different kind in the Italian city as Verona hosts the third Longines FEI World Cup Jumping competition of the season.
Verona, located in Northeast Italy in the Veneto region, is one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Often overlooked beside neighboring Venice, it possesses an impressive artistic heritage and many cultural diversions. It has also been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the importance and value of its many historical edifices. Located a short drive from Venice or Lake Garda, in the heart of the Valpolicella wine zone, it is an ideal destination for visitors looking to experience the many sides of Italy – cultural events, shopping, history, fine dining and amazing wines.
