Although Shakespeare himself never made it to Verona, he made the city the literary home of the most famous lovers in the world: Romeo and Juliet. But besides the famous love story, Verona has plenty more to offer. The city – with its medieval center and huge Roman open-air arena – was awarded the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Verona is rarely mentioned in relation to Dante yet the poet was exiled in Verona and remained there for seven years. Dante wrote parts of the Divine Comedy in Verona and many references to the city can be found in the poem. In this Field Learning activity, students will explore the city, its main sites such as the arena and the world-renowned balcony of Juliet, and retrace the Dantesque places of Verona as they emerge from the biography and work of the great poet.
