It makes sense that the historic city which set the scene for Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet also houses some of the most beautiful architecture and scenic landscapes out there. It's hard to imagine anyone not falling in love in Verona.
Hence, my fast infatuation with the charming Italian town. Verona might be overlooked by travelers rushing to get to cities like Rome, Tuscany, and Venice, but trust: it's one of the best places to sample authentic food and wine in one of the most heart-eye-emoji, beautiful regions in Italy.

Especially when they’re the shrunken down versions of our favourite designer bags.
