If You Love Someone, Bring Them to Verona
To: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
If you love someone bring them to Verona– this is the slogan for the city of Verona’s event “Verona in Love” from 11 to 14 February. Verona has been synonymous with love for centuries. The event, organized by the Municipality of Verona in collaboration with the Province and the merchants’ associations, offers a program full of captivating ideas. Visitors can spend unforgettable days listening to live music, attending book presentations and theatrical performances, or visiting the most romantic parts of the city of Romeo and Juliet.
The event’s main attractions will take place in the heart of the city’s squares: Piazza Bra, Piazza dei Signori and Cortile Mercato Vecchio. Some events are ongoing while others are planned for specific dates.
A Heart to Discover in Piazza dei Signori is an outdoor market set up in the shape of a heart where visitors can find themed gift ideas and other curious creations for the holiday of love.
In the nearby portico of Fra ‘Giocondo, renamed Loggiato in Love, you can taste local Veronese wines and various culinary delights.
In the Old Market Courtyard you will find the Message from the Heart, a bulletin board where you can leave a message or a dedication to your lover, or even the Seal of Love, where you can symbolically seal your love on parchment with a wax seal.
While listening to the review Live in Love, let your senses be delighted by a showering of colorful, heart-shaped confetti (so-called soffi d’amore) as you exchange a kiss with your partner alongside thousands of other lovers.
Finally, on Valentine’s Day, the “Dear Juliet” award will be given to the author of the most beautiful and passionate love letter from around the world.
The shop windows all along the streets of the historic center will be illuminated and decorated in theme making it easy to find your way to various landmarks and sights (including Juliet’s birth place). Don’t miss the various evocative theatrical representations and many other exciting events planned.
So all that’s left to do is surprise your partner with a stay in romantic Verona!
