It's ok, some people are really nice and some people are not. There is alot of drugs, but not as much as neighboring cities. There are nice parts of verona and not so nice parts of verona, for example, some places seem very high class and the area is generally very clean, but there is also places with sex offenders, trash everywhere, and random condoms laying on the ground. We are usually very accepting of people of color and the LGBTQIA+ community which is nice. There's nothing special about verona. I've lived here my entire life and honestly I am very excited to go to college and explore a different city.
