The Experience

Marked by history, Verona tells with its architecture the story of the succession of various dominations: from the Roman settlement, to the age of the communes, to the age of the Scaliger Seigniory and on to the Venetian and Habsburg dominations. In the central Piazza Bra stands grandly the Arena, the Roman amphitheater that has hosted the prestigious summer opera season and many concerts for decades. Nearby is Juliet’s House, with its famous balcony, which welcomes thousands of visitors each year fascinated by the story of Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. Walking around Piazza delle Erbe, then, mingling with the people who animate the colorful city market on a daily basis, is a very pleasant experience. And to step back into the past, to the heyday of the Scaliger Seigniory, just go to the Piazza dei Signori and admire the majestic palaces, the Loggia and the Palazzo della Ragione. The Cathedral, with its famous Titian altarpiece, and not far away the Basilica of Santa Anastasia and the Roman Theater are definitely worth a stop. Also not to be missed are a visit to the Basilica of San Zeno, a fascinating example of Romanesque architecture, and Castelvecchio, the ancient 14th-century manor house currently housing the Civic Museum.

Verona should be experienced through art and architecture: walking among the palaces, churches and squares. Verona is a path through history, culture — and love.

Verona to eat…..

In addition to several typical dishes (among others, “bollito con la pearà” or “pastissada de caval”), the Veronese territory offers genuine, quality products, from Vialone Nano rice, the only one in Italy to bear the European Protected Geographical Indication mark, to Monte Veronese cheese, to Garda extra virgin olive oil. Products that become ingredients of exquisite recipes and are perfectly accompanied by the D.O.C. wines of the area: the Bardolino of the Garda Riviera, the wines of Soave, Valpolicella, as well as the famous Amarone.
