Hidden and secret places in Verona


A magnificent city, on the banks of the Adige River, Verona was founded by the Veneti people and later, in the second century BC, became an important Roman city in Northern Italy.

A great example of the ancient link with Rome is the Arena, the third largest amphitheater in Italy built in the first century and still in use today for the summer Opera Festival.

Verona is most notably known as the city of Romeo and Juliet, the dramatic novel originally written by Luigi da Porto and made famous by Shakespeare. After your visit to the legendary Juliet's house, spend time visiting hidden treasures, such as the Church of Saint Zeno, the Church of Saint Anastasia and the Roman Theater.

Bear witness to this breathtaking city full of art and Medieval, Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Prepare yourself for a unique experience of unforgettable dreams and superb harmony that inspired poets, musicians and writers like Dante, Byron and Mozart.

Itinerary

We begin our tour in Piazza Bra, renowned for its first century Roman Arena, where world famous operas are still held throughout the summer every year.
The nearby pedestrian area holds a variety of sites, including the legendary Juliet's House with its famous balcony, Piazza de Erbe with its colorful daily market and the wide façade of the Medieval Palazzo del Commune, along with the tall brick Lamberti's Tower.
You will be awed by the many Romanesque Churches, that still survived in the city, like St. Anastasia and St. Zeno Church.
