Verona, Italy travel guide.

The 15 main sights of Verona

What to see in Verona

Located about midway between Milan and Venice, Verona is rightfully one of Italy’s most popular tourist cities and impresses travelers with its art, architectural monuments, opera and literary fame.

Verona is located on the bend of the Adige River, which rises in the Alps. The historic center of Verona Centro Storico, where most of the attractions are located, is linked to the left bank neighborhoods by ten bridges. Because tourists more often prefer its charming neighbor Venice, they try to see Verona in one day, but there is so much to see here that you will surely want to spend more time in this charming city.

Verona was granted the status of a Roman colony in 89 B.C. and then began its heyday. There are several monuments of that time preserved including a Roman amphitheater and many Romanesque churches of XI and XII centuries.

During the Renaissance, Verona became an important art center, forcing creative people to flock here while still under the rule of the della Scala family. You will find references to them everywhere, they are called Scaligers. The leading architects of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries were Fra Giocondo and Michele Sanmicheli, who built several magnificent buildings and were responsible for building the bastion city walls. Below are photos and descriptions of 14 sights of Verona.

Castelvecchio / Ponte Scaligero

Castelvecchio was built on the banks of the Adige during the reign of the Scaligers in 1354-55 and is an impressive defensive fortress, which reminds all rivals of the power of della Scala dynasty. The beautiful 14th-century Ponte Scaligero (Scaliger Bridge) spans the river and there is no automobile traffic, so local families like to stroll across it.

The main tower and walls of the castle overlook the bridge, the city streets, and the surrounding hills. The interior of the castle was brilliantly restored and adapted into a creative exhibition space by architect Carlo Scarpa, without harming the integrity or history of the castle.

Here are the collections of the city’s art museum Civico Museo d’Arte, in particular Veronese sculpture, applied art and works by Bellini, Rubens, Montagni, Guardi, Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Pisano and artists of the Verona School of the XV and XVI centuries.

A few steps from Corso Cavour is the Arco dei Gavi, a first century stone triumphal gate that was part of the Roman road. Under the arch you can find traces of chariots in stone.

Arena di Verona.

One of the largest and best preserved Roman amphitheaters was built during Diocletian’s rule, around 290 BC. Although only the four outer arches on the north side are preserved, the seats in the vaults are in good condition.

The amphitheater has 44 rows of seats that can accommodate 22,000 spectators. In July and August, the Arena di Verona hosts the Verona Opera Festival, one of the main musical events of the summer in Europe along with the Bayreuth and Salzburg Festivals.

The arena is one side of the wide Piazza Brà (Piazza Brà), opposite is the Palazzo Malfatti, created by Sammichele. Near the long 1614 Gran Guardi is the gate and the tower of Portoni della Brà.

Juliet’s House (Casa di Giulietta)

Casa di Giulietta

It is impossible to imagine the sights of Verona and Italy without the world-famous site of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”. Tourists were constantly asking where the lovers lived, and the kindly Veronians would point to an inconspicuous medieval palazzo near Piazza delle Erbe (Piazza delle Erbe ), which had a romantic courtyard where tourists could stay without creating a crowd in the street.

In the 1930s a missing element was added, namely a balcony overlooking the courtyard. A few decades later, the city installed a bronze statue and allowed photography on the balcony.

Despite the fact that the story is fictional, the characters are just literary images, and the plot is not based on any real events or people who lived in Verona (Shakespeare was never here), the city has still become a place of pilgrimage and writing letters to the mythical Juliet, which are answered by a specially trained team of her secretaries.

Address: Casa di Giulietta, Via Cappello, Verona, Italy.

Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore

Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore

The Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore.

The grand 11th and 12th century Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore is rightly considered the best Romanesque church in northern Italy. The beautiful front of alternating layers of brick and white tufa culminates in a narrow Romanesque bell tower (1045-1178), and next to it, on the site of a former Benedictine abbey, is a 14th-century defensive tower.

Even if you enter the elegant Romanesque monastery through the side gate, be sure to look at the bronze doors on the front portal with prominent Romanesque relief depictions of biblical and secular scenes.

The decoration has an unusual 14th-century wooden roof and beautiful Romanesque capitals. In the aisles are frescoes dating from the 12th century. In the choir is a marble figure, presumably from the fourteenth century, in which we can recognize St. Zeno, bishop of Verona in the fourth century.

His reliquary is placed in the crypt, which is quite unusual in that it is equal in size and importance to the altar above it. On the main altar is a 15th century painting of the Madonna and Saints by Mantegna.

Address: Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore, Piazza San Zeno, Verona, Italy.

Piazza delle Erbe

The main attraction in Verona’s historic center is the compact Piazza delle Erbe. It is arguably one of the most picturesque squares in Italy. Piazza delle Erbe is located on the site of an ancient Roman forum and is now a fruit and vegetable market.

In the center of the square is the sixteenth-century “Berlina”, a canopy on four columns, formerly used for elections. To the north of the canopy is the 1368 fountain with the Madonna of Verona, a marble statue from ancient times that was reconstructed in the Middle Ages.

In the north corner of the square there is a marble column with the lion of St. Mark, which is a symbol of the former rulers of Verona when Venice had power over it. To the northeast stands Casa Mazzanti, originally built by the Scaligers.

Like many houses here, it is decorated with Renaissance frescoes. Also in the square is the Palazzo Maffei, a 1668 baroque building and the Tower del Gardello, built in 1370. The Casa dei Mercanti by Via Pellicciai was rebuilt in 1878 in its original form, dating back to 1301.

The Torre dei Lamberti, 84 meters high with its medieval bell, is not to be missed. You can take the elevator up to the tower and from the top you have a beautiful bird’s-eye view of the old part of town.

On the opposite end of the piazza stretches the pedestrian street Via Mancini with Verona’s most fashionable boutiques.

Also in the square are the Tower and the Tribunali Palace, converted in 1530-31 from the Scaligers’ Palace with the addition of Renaissance doors by Michele Sanmicheli.

To the east is the Palazzo del Governo (Palazzo del Governo), originally another palace of former rulers.

To the north of the Piazza della Signoria is the Loggia of the Council, one of the finest early Renaissance buildings in Italy. It was built by Fra Giocondo from 1486 to 1493 and is surmounted by statues of famous citizens of Verona. Archaeologists have discovered here the street of ancient Rome, mosaics and other interesting objects, which you can see from the entrance from the adjacent large courtyard.

The tombs of the dynasty almost outshine the church itself, as they are topped with images of rulers in full armor.

Above the church door are a sarcophagus and a copy of the equestrian statue of Cangrande della Scala, who died in 1329 (the original is on display in Castelvecchio).

To the left is a wall monument in memory of Giovanni (died 1359), and a sarcophagus of Mastino I from 1277. Inside the railing under the canopy are the sarcophagi and equestrian statues of Mastino II and Canzignorio, who died in 1351 and 1375.

More interesting views can be seen from the auditorium, which was paved into the hillside, and marble mosaics can be seen on the floor. The theater is the site of Verona’s summer jazz festival.

The Ponte Pietra Roman Bridge was blown up during World War II, like the rest of Verona’s bridges, but after the war ended its slabs were lifted from the river, carefully sorted and re-built a bridge that can be enjoyed nowadays.

The first church of San Fermo Maggiore was built in the eighth century in memory of the saints Fermo and Rustico, who were believed at the time to have been killed in a gladiatorial arena. In the eleventh century the church was rebuilt and only the crypt remains of the original.

The present church retains its Romanesque lower part of the 11th century, with a Gothic upper part from the 13th to the 14th century. The façade is beautifully decorated with marble. The church contains a 14th century wooden crucifix and a “Adoration of the Shepherds” by Alessandro Turca.

You enter the town over a drawbridge at the foot of the beautiful Rocca Scaliger Castle, built in the 12th century by Verona’s ruling Scaliger family.

After touring the restored rooms of the castle, climb the tower and admire the view of the lake and the city.

Stroll along Sirmione’s main street with chic stores and take a tour to the far end of the peninsula. The Roman poet Catullus, who lived here from 84 to 54 B.C., built a villa here to immerse himself in the sulfur springs, which you can now visit in a luxury spa.

The remains of his villa, Grotte di Catullo, and the complex surrounding it deserve your attention as part of history or as a place with a beautiful view of the lake.
