OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

ENG: When you say the name of this cute, tucked city, your first thought is magnificent  work of English literature, ” Romeo and Juliet”. Maybe it could sound strange that an Englishman, that maybe had never visited this Italian city, is the reason why millions of tourists visit this city of romance, Verona!

The second largest city in province of Veneto, is situated 520 kilometers north of Rome, 120 kilometers west of Venice, and if you go 30 km to the west you’ll see the largest lake in Italy, lake Garda. In my opinion, Verona is quiet town, perfect for family life, where you get the feeling that you’re living in metropolis, but yet in warm, friendly environment.

Walking by the famous Roman arena, we entered the old city center. This part of the town is placed under the protection of UNESCO in 2000.

The Roman arena in Verona is the third largest arena in Europe. It was made in first century, and until today this arena stayed the mark of this town. Today, here are held concerts and theatre shows.

This city has a little more than 260.000 residents, but of course, the most famous, the immortal residents are, Romeo and Juliet. Prohibited love between these two young people, is inevitable story of every tours of Verona, and Juliet’s house, the haven for many brokenhearted girls. Every day, girls around the world come here to confess their love stories, hoping that she’ll help them to get back or get over that one special guy. But, that’s enough romance for today, now let’s talk about something really interesting. The world famous Juliet’s house, is not of course the home of this fictional character. This house is just a well- designed, well- thought idea of Italian people, to create a hotspot for tourists around the world from the house that was build in 12th century. This house belonged to Dal Capello family, which you have to say, reminds of Capuleti family from Shakespeare’s play.

I think that one of the most important parts of visiting a certain city for every girl is shopping and a coffee break with your friends. Don’t worry! After a tour around the city, which you can not miss, you have plenty of time to wander around the city, shop, take a place at a coffee shop on the “piazza” and just enjoy!

At the end of this short blog tour around Verona, I strongly recommend you to visit this city that has fascinated me.

SRB: Kada pomenete ime ovog simpatičnog, ušuškanog gradića, prva asocijacija je, naravno, veličanstveno delo engleske književnsti, ” Romeo i Julija”. Možda deluje čudno da jedan Englez, koji možda nikada nije imao priliku da vidi ovaj italijanski grad, zapravo razlog zašto milioni turista godišnje posećuje grad romantike, Veronu!

Drugi po veličini grad pokrajine Veneto ( posle Venecije), nalazi se 520 km severno od Rima, 120 km zapadno od Venecije, a ukoliko krenete 30 km  na zapad ugledaćete najveće jezero u Italiji, jezero Garda. Verona je na mene ostavila utisak mirnog grada, savršenog za porodičan život u kome imate utisak da živite u metropoli a ipak u toplom, prijateljskom okruženju.

Prolazeći  pored čuvene rimske arene, ušli smo u staro gradsko jezgro. Ovaj deo grada je 2000. godine stavljen pod zaštitu UNESCO-a.

Rimska arena u Veroni je treća po veličini u Evropi. Nastala je u 1. veku i od tada nemilosrdno gospodari Veronom. I 2000 godina kasnije u ovoj areni se održavaju razni događaju, ali malo drugačijeg sadržaja, koncerti, pozorišne predtave itd.

Ovaj grad ima nešto više od 260.000 stanovnika, ali svakako najpoznatiji, besmrtni građani su svakako, Romeo i Julija. Zabranjena ljubav ovo dvoje mladih, neizbežna je priča svakog turističkog vodiča pri obilasku Verone, a Julijina kuća utočište za brojna slomljena srca devojaka. Svakodnevno,  nekolicina devojaka ispoveda Juliji svoju priču u nadi da će im pomoći da vrate ili prebole svoju ljubav. Ali dosta romantike, sada malo zanimljivosti.  Naime, čuvena ” Julijina kuća”, naravno da nije dom izmišljene junakinje. Ona je samo ostvarena dobra ideja italijana da od, zaista prekrasne kuće s kraja 12. veka, naprave pravi mamac za romantične turiste širom sveta. Kuća je pripadala porodici Dal Capello što je podsećalo na porodicu Capuleti iz Šekspirovog dela.

Ono što je verovatno većini žena važnije od obilaska istorijskih znamenitosti grada, su svakako šoping i kafa.:) Ne brinite! Posle obilaska, koji ne smete da propustite, imate dovoljno vremena, radnji i kafića da se odmorite i uživate.

Na samom kraju, želim od srca da vam preporučim da posetite ovaj grad, jer je mene potpuno opčinio i naterao da se osećam kao u bajci.
