Even though Verona is famous for tragical Romeo & Juliet, what I remember from that holiday are pumpkin ravioli, pecorino cheese, tiramisu, coffee, stunning architecture and opera. Yes, Italian opera. What a country! Is so easy to keep finding reasons to return, right?!
My first visit in Italy was years ago, with a trip up north in Venice and Verona. I was there at the invitation of my friend Jessica, who was working back than at the Arena di Verona. We saw Aida de Verdi. Was perfect.
- Recommend dinner reservations at Osteria Giulietta e Romeo (Corso Sant’Anastasia, 27, 37121 Verona). Is where I ordered the memorable pumpkin ravioli
- Must have an aperitivo & antipasti in the center of Verona as a light dinner
- Visit at Castelvecchio (The Old Castle)
- Tickets at Aida in Verona, summer 2020 at Arena di Verona
- Trip to Lake Garda
“Aida” de Verdi
What I can remember from that August night at the opera is that it was exceptional. I can briefly tell you the story. In Ancient Egypt, a love story takes place between Radames, a young warrior and Aida, the captured daughter of the Ethiopian king. 4 acts, battles, Triumphal March and a tragic end. But I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Is Monday. I will leave pictures for the rest and more pieces of Verona.
