Verona is a city in northern Italy and the capital of the province of Verona in the Veneto region. The city is located east of Milan and west of Venice and Padua. The Adige River flows through Verona. Because of this there are many old bridges over this river, such as the Ponte Vittoria, the Ponte Garibaldi, the Ponte Nuovo, the Ponte Navi etc. etc. Already in Roman times the city was important and was used by the Romans as a base for their campaigns to the north, across the Alps. After Rome, Verona has the most buildings from the Roman period.
Two of William Shakespeare’s plays are set in Verona: ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’. It is unknown if Shakespeare ever visited Verona or Italy.
