This was a once in a lifetime trip that we still talk about to this day. Getting the whole family together for a holiday becomes harder and harder as the years go by, it’s nice that we took advantage of it while we were able to do so…We truly enjoyed every minute and made wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Verona is romantic and absolutely beautiful – my favourite place in Italy so far. This medieval city is known amongst locals and visitors alike as being the setting for Shakespeare’s tragic love story Romeo & Juliet. You are able to visit Juliet’s House and see Juliet’s balcony as well as Juliet’s wall featuring thousands of love notes written by visitors. Verona has actually been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as it it home to many significant historical buildings.
