If you love someone, take them to Verona!
Even this year the traditional Valentine’s Day with the series of events “Verona in Love – Dolcemente in Love” is back. “If you love someone, bring them to Verona!” is the slogan of the event that will take place from 9th to 17th February 2019. Therefore, the weekends dedicated to love has doubled, in order to give more people the opportunity to live an unique and special Valentine’s Day. After all, what better way to celebrate love than in the city of love par excellence?! So here are some ideas to spend a perfect day of romance!
Let’s start with the big news of 2019: a fantastic view of Verona from above and an exciting kiss in the clouds…on board a real hot air balloon! The event is in Piazza Bra (the square of the famous Arena of Verona) from 9th to 14th February, from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm and then from 2.00 pm to 7.00 pm. The price is only 20 euros per couple in the case of just a balloon ride or 30 euros per couple with a drink included at the aperitruck, a beautiful flower and a romantic souvenir photo. Also, on February 14th, do not miss the final concert from 5.00 pm to 8.00 pm. Arena, Palazzo Barbieri and Palazzo della Gran Guardia will all be illuminated red for the duration of the event.
Without a sweet touch, what kind of love would it be? So, let yourself be tempted by the thousand varieties of chocolate and pastry desserts proposed by the stands in Via Roma, the road that leads from Piazza Bra to Castelvecchio, which are opened from 9th to 14th February. For a perfect romantic dinner, many restaurants are ready to pamper you with the “Due cuori a tavola” (“Two hearts at the table”) initiative, a themed menu created specifically for the occasion.
TORRE DEI LAMBERTI AND PIAZZA DEI SIGNORI
Where to go for a perfect couple aperitif? Verona has also thought of this: a romantic “high altitude” aperitif on Torre dei Lamberti, with special discounts for couples, and a breath-taking view of Verona from above. For the occasion, Torre dei Lamberti will be all lit up red, the colour of love and passion.
This 2019 could not miss the already well-known “Mercatino dell’amore” (“Love Market”) in Piazza dei Signori, the series of stalls arranged in the shape of a giant heart, with a thousand romantic gift ideas, handmade creations and typical Veronese products. But that is not all! The novelty 2019 is that of a real labyrinth of plants and hedges, created inside the big heart, and a balcony identical to that of Juliet’s House, where to exchange promises of love and take some souvenir photos. To warm even more the atmosphere, live music concerts to create a magical background. The event is from 9th to 17th February from 10.00 am to 9.00 pm.
LOGGIA DI FRA ‘GIOCONDO
Within the Loggia di Fra’ Giocondo, dozens of theater shows, romantic screenings and themed exhibitions are scheduled, such as the unique and affordable works signed “Juliet Love Signature“, pieces of the “wall” that leads to Juliet’s House.
Hundreds of heart-shaped lights illuminate your walk from Piazza Bra to Juliet’s House and from Juliet’s House to Piazza dei Signori, making the atmosphere even more tender. In addition to the already mentioned exhibition of paintings made with the pieces of the “wall” of Juliet’s House, also the “Dear Juliet” Prize returns for this 2019, organized by the “Club of Juliet”. Take a break and listen to the reading of the most beautiful and moving letters of love from the thousands of letters sent each year to Juliet and her “secretaries” from all over the world.
