My father-in-law is a devout opera fan so, when we were thinking of 70th birthday presents, a long weekend in Verona floated to the top of the list. The ancient city's association with the arts draws visitors in droves, most of whom come to see the legendary Juliet House, complete with that very balcony from which she famously called to her lover, Romeo.
Tom has 15 years experience in the travel industry, working on purchasing and procurement of hotels in the Americas for British and Middle Eastern travel companies. He is also a part time brewer and craft beer fan so his blog, seeksbeer.com, combines these 2 of his life passions: travel and beer. Discover little known breweries, bars and beers as well as some inspiration for your next trip, be that somewhere in the UK or perhaps further afield because, after all, the Seeksbeer mantra is: people and places with beer are people and places worth visiting.

I'm sure there are plenty of other bloggers out there who will dive into that scene far more deeply than I have time for.
