9 / 15

ONE OF THE POSSIBLE ITINERARY Starting from Verona railway station, along Corso Porta Nuova: you will easily reach the heart of the city, Piazza Bra, with the monumental Arena. The Romanic Anfiteatro is one of the most ancient and best-preserved of those existing, and it’s now the charming venue of a famous Opera season. Give at least a glance at the great palaces Gran Guardia and Barbieri and take for the Liston, a characteristic wide pavement that goes through piazza Bra and brings to via Mazzini, a street plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Arrived at the end of via Mazzini you will be surprised to find out a very peculiar dwelling: the very famous Casa di Giulietta (Juliet’s house). At this point you certainly have a feeling for the city fascinations: the inner town streets hold unexpected shoots on ancients buildings, churches, and dramatic views on bridges and monuments. Few more steps and you will find yourself in Piazza delle Erbe, the square where the city market has been taking place for centuries. The square is surrounded by some extraordinarily interesting buildings: the Domus Mercatorum, the Gardello Tower, Maffei Palace and Case Mazzanti (a huge completely painted “a fresco” house). Pass over the Arco della Costa, and see the beautiful Piazza dei Signori, that used to be, together with the adjacent Piazza delle Erbe, the venue of government palaces in Middle ages and it’s now a very appreciated meeting place, where social and cultural events set almost every day. Very close to Piazza dei Signori are the Arche Scaligere, monumental graves of Signori della Scala, Lords of Verona straddling the XIII and XIV centuries, situated in front of the Church of Santa Maria Antica.
