Verona is famous for being the setting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. A 14th-century residence with a balcony overlooking a courtyard said to be Juliet's house is located at Via Cappello. Other attractions include the Verona Arena, a huge 1st-century Roman amphitheater, similar to the Colesium, which hosts concerts and opera performances.
