by Travel Planner Blogger
According to vacation planner, Verona, the city in northern Italy's Veneto region, with a medieval old town is a treasure for those who are travelling to the region for their holidays. The place is famous for Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" setting. There is a 14th-century house with a tiny balcony said to be Juliet's house. Many other plays of Shakespeare is said to have its backdrop in Verona.

A good portion of the city's income is based on the international tourism. As people only define Verona as the city of Romeo and Juliet the other beauties of the city are sometimes neglected. One should know that Verona is an artistic, historical and cultural hamlet. 

Basilica Di San Zeno Maggiore

It is suggested by the Verona trip planner that this church has its first origin in the 4th century. But most of the currently existing buildings have been constructed between the 10th and 12th century. This church has influenced the building of many other churches in Verona with its Romanesque style.

Casa Di Giulietta

But journey guides refer that the tourists are not satisfied with the answer and thus the medieval building is renovated to some extend for impressing the tourists by describing the place to be the living place of mythical Juliet.
