Simply book your Trenitalia e-ticket then take a comfortable seat aboard the mighty Frecciarossa. Aptly nicknamed the “Red Arrow”, this world-class high-speed train can reach a top speed of 300km/h as it smoothly whisks you away to Verona in less than an hour! Four passenger classes are available plus a wide variety of friendly onboard services and amenities for your convenience.
Located in the Veneto region of Italy, Verona was actually the setting for three Shakespearean plays: Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew and The Two Gentlemen of Verona. In fact, the small stone balcony of the city’s 14th century Casa di Giulietta residence is believed to have been the writer’s inspiration for Juliet’s house. Verona is a recognized UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its rich historical background and ancient, iconic landmarks. The majestic, first-century-built Verona Arena amphitheater, 12th century Torre dei Lamberti tower and 14th century Castelvecchio Bridge are just a few city attractions not to be missed!
