Where is the best place to spend Valentine’s Day this year? Verona, of course, the city that has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO. Everybody knows that Shakespeare set his tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’ there. That’s why they decided to organise Verona in love, a series of events held in the city of love. Following the playwright’s 400th death anniversary this year’s edition is dedicated to Shakespeare and his plays. Here some highlights taking place between 11 and 14 February 2016:
