Strategically located where the River Adage emerges from the Alps onto the Northern Italian plain, Verona Italy is near Lake Garda on a loop of the fast-flowing river. It is a city of bridges (ten of them) and was once the most important town owned by Venice on the mainland (terra firma). Richly endowed with picturesque streets and squares, art and architecture, it is hardly possible to imagine a city that has a more appealing character. It is, quite rightly, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Verona Italy

Verona Italy city’s history is well illustrated by famous monuments and buildings. The amphitheatre built around 30 AD is the third largest in Italy and there are other Roman remains, such as a theatre and the built Gavi Arch.

The 4th century shrine of Verona‘s patron saint, St Zeno, lies beneath the stunning Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore, a triumph of Romanesque architecture built in the 12th century. Other Romanesque masterpieces include the small Basilica of San Lorenzo, the large Church of Santa Maria Antica and the striking Cathedral, with its fine Gothic interior. Indeed, there are so many fascinating churches in Verona Italy that a month could be spent viewing them.
