Burn a few calories and follow your guide along streets with little traffic in order to enjoy Verona from a different view point..You will discover the past and the present of the city, you will find out more about the streets and squares and the river Adige and then you will head towards parts of Verona unknown by most tourists and you will remember this tour long after you have returned home.
Our loop ride starts from Piazza Brà
and you immediately notice the stunning roman amphitheatre, the Arena
, known throughout the world for the opera performances held in summer. Your guide will tell you about the history, the art and culture of Verona and about the famous people that are linked to the city, without forgetting our most famous claim to fame: the love story of Romeo ad Juliet
. The roman domination, which started more than two thousand years ago, left us the easily recognizable outlay of the city centre and many monuments such as the Arena, the Roman Theatre
, the roman Stone Bridge
, still used nowadays, and further well preserved monuments such as Porta Borsari
and the Arco dei Gavi
. Let us not forget the Della Scala family! They ruled Verona in the XIVth century and built castles and fortresses: Castelvecchio
and its bridge, their city dwellings and their elaborate tombs called Arche Scaligere
. The heritage of four centuries of venitian domination are the many beautiful and richly decorated palaces and the new city walls
plus entrance gates which were reinforced and completed by the Austrians during their rule in the XIXth century.
