Verona in Love 2012

From 11 February 2012 to 14 February 2012

This year marks the eighth edition of Verona in love, the yearly appointment dedicated to all lovers wishing to spend St Valentine in the city of Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers par excellence.

From February 11th to 14th there will be a rich calendar of events and entertainment opportunities, with unexpected surprises that will not fail to please all. Surrounded by the atmospheres of this suggestive and fascinating city, you will spend unforgettable days with your loved one, with good music, theatre plays, music and dancing shows and talks with authors and showbiz stars. Dedicated to the theme of love and the myth of Juliet, this event finds in the ambience of Verona the ideal location to celebrate love and those in love. The event will take place in the two main squares in Verona, romantically linked by the route stretching from Piazza Bra to Juliets house and then to Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza dei Signori. This itinerary has been purposely devised in order to awe all those in love, and will be lit by big red hearts and flanked by the shop windows with their themed decorations. The very suggestive and poetic atmosphere will be wrapped up on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th with the distribution of chocolates and heart-shaped balloons. Piazza dei Signori, at the end of the romantic route, will again this year be the location of the well-known super-sized red heart, the symbol of the event, and also the heart-shaped stall market, a photo of which, taken from the top of the Lamberti Tower, has now been seen around the world. As usual, stalls will present love-related items with the jolly accompaniment of music bands, entertaining exhibitions and various visually striking performances. There will be many initiatives aimed at making these love-dedicated days truly unforgettable. A message from the heart. I love you and I will set it in writing is back for the second year running. Couples will be able to leave a love message on the dashboard of Verona in Love in Cortile Mercato Vecchio, next to Piazza dei Signori. The best messages will receive a prize with free surprises for the winning couple. Additionally, if you book online, you will be able to pick up your Love Seal, a personalized paper vellum sheet with the names of the couple permanently sealed with sealing wax. Also, who would say no to having a personal portrait drawn on the backdrop of Juliets balcony? Finally, the restaurants and bars that have joined the Two hearts at the table initiative will offer the opportunity to complete the day with a cosy romantic dinner with purposely prepared menus, inspired by the theme of love. This year, celebrate love and treat yourself to a weekend in Verona. In the city of Romeo and Juliet, your St Valentine will be magic and unforgettable.
