- the Arche Scaligere
- Mercato Vecchio courtyard
In ancient Roman times, the city of Verona received its chess-board fabric and was adorned with the Arena, the world’s best preserved Roman amphitheater that today still provides its spectators with hours of good music and entertainment.
The visit also includes the 14th century house of Juliet, a lovers’ venue and a very popular stop: in everyone’s mind Verona is linked to her image and her sad love story.
Another 14th century attraction is the bizarre “Arche” of the Della Scala family, namely the stone lace structures pointing up to the sky that still harbor suspicions and mysteries. Along the way you will cross three main squares that have maintained their peculiar and very popular, aristocratic or institutional character throughout the centuries.
If you have an additional hour at disposal, a good idea would be to enhance your city experience with a derivé along and out of the Adige riverbanks, beyond “the obvious”, to enjoy some of the views and sceneries of the green hills and the ancient bridges.
- Della Scala family Medieval castle
