The classical tour of Verona starts from the Arena, built in the 1st century BC and then through Via Mazzini the house of Giulietta. From Giulietta’s house we reach Piazza delle Erbe, ancient Roman Forum and Piazza Dante where the main city monuments of the city are built, a symbol and expression of the various domination that has historically followed. The tour ends with a visit to the church of Sant’Anastasia and Castelvecchio.
From the hill of San Pietro and enjoying a spectacular panorama of the whole city begins our journey to the discovery of Roman Verona with a visit to the Roman amphitheater, at the gates of the city, up to the arena and then end in the ancient Roman forum, the heart of the city’s political and commercial life: the square of the Herbs.
The city in the Middle Ages is linked to the name of the Scala family and visiting the buildings built by these powerful lords will revive the history and the business of this noble dynasty.
The name of Verona is indissolubly tied to the Shakespearian tragedy of Juliet and Romeo. Visiting Giulietta’s house, Romeo’s home, the church where they married and the tomb of the unlucky young man, we will read the story of these two unlucky lovers step by step.
In the afternoon you can admire the small villages lining the shores of Lake Garda that fascinated visitors for centuries like Sirmione. It is a charming village at the end of a long peninsula stretching on the southern shore of Lake Garda. Its beauty has been narrated since ancient times by the Roman poet Catullo, and since then its splendor has not increased with the addition of the colorful medieval village and the imposing Rocca Scaligera.
