Because in a few square kilometers, this city concentrates a history and art masterworks from all eras and styles: whether you are looking for history or for widespread beauty, in Verona you will find what you are looking for … and perhaps even what you didn’t know you were looking for.
Within a largely pedestrian and pleasantly accessible historic center, you will reach in a few steps some of the most important Roman monuments in the world, which make Verona the most Roman city after Rome itself. Alongside the classical architecture, there are early Christian churches, imposing Romanesque basilicas, crenellated palaces and fairy-tale Gothic burials that testify to the second “golden age” of Verona: the Middle Ages, the age of Della Scala family.
You will then be overwhelmed by the exuberance of the squares, so serene in their colors and unconscious harmony of the facades, like a mirror of the immortal Venetian Renaissance. And then again, looking up on the surrounding hills, you will see all around the city the imposing fortresses of the Habsburg era, which evoke the spasms of our Risorgimento.
Time has stopped many times in Verona … reliving every era here is a unique experience, but also a true and authentic one: Verona is not a museum, but a community that lives in history, in the art and in the music that resounds from its Arena, every single day, and this community wants to feel in some way, the Italian capital of Emotion.
