Locals often wonder: “Why travelers don’t go to Veronetta?”
For locals it is hard to understand why travelers don’t go to Veronetta. We realized that it is off the beaten tracks: they were right, it was time to get started and fill the gap, eventually. So, we set up a tour. It’s not a tour for first comers (well…why not?), but skipping Veronetta – the left bank of the river Adige – indeed means missing a lot of Verona. Why? Because it is here that the city had its crib even before the Roman times. Because it is here that the hills are rich in green and provide gorgeous views. Moreover, at the foothill, in the maze of untouched Medieval winding streets, you are likely to make authentic human encounters.
Here is a list of the many historical, monumental surprises that expect you on this tour:
– the Roman Theatre and its Archeological Museum
– a walk through San Giovanni Valle quarter, with its cozy, Romanesque church and cloister, and a crescendo experience up to the top of the hills and the intact Medieval walls, where the view opens up unexpectedly
– the romantic terrace of the dominating rock of Castel San Pietro, filled with old cypresses and modern-times Romeos and Juliets
– depending on the day of the week, we are able to include one of the following sites: San Siro e Libera, the Giusti gardens, Santa Maria in Organo inlaid wooden choir, Santo Stefano facade.
Please note that the tour implies a moderate activity level with a few uphill, stairs and uneven terrain.
