Stop 2

Arena

The Arena, with its gigantic dimensions of 140 meters in length and 110 meters in width, dominates Piazza Bra and is the world's best preserved Roman amphitheater. Built in 1st century AD, thanks to its great acoustics, still provides hours of good music and entertainment with seating for 30000 people.
Stop 3

Gavi Arch

This arch, built in white veronese marble and dedicated to the “Gavia”, an important Roman family, in the 1st century, used to stand in the middle of Corso Castelvecchio, connecting the city with the capital, Rome. The French dismantled it as it was considered a hindrance to traffic and dumped the pieces under the arches of the arena. It was reassembled where it now stands, piece by piece, in 1932.
Stop 4

Scaligere Arches

These remarkable funerary tombs commemorate the Scaliger family who ruled Verona in 13th and 14th century. The most representative monument of the Gothic art, the tombs are placed within an enclosure of wrought iron grilles decorated with a stair motif, referring to the name of the della Scala family, meaning "of the stairs" in Italian.
Stop 5

Juliet’s Balcony

This is the reason why most of the tourists visit Verona, to visit and listen to one of the most romantic and tragic love story written by Shakespeare. This building, originally dating back to the 12th century, was owned for a long period by the Dal Cappello family, whose coat-of-arms is carved into the keystone of the courtyard inner archway. Identification of the name Cappello with that of Capuleti began the popular belief was inspiration for his famous play from a true story of family rivalry and of the eternal forbidden love.
Stop 6

Erbe Square

The Forum, centre of city life during Roman times, was situated here. The Piazza delle Erbe has continued to fill this same role for centuries: meeting place, home to the market, and also home to the city's administration The centre of the square contains the monuments that symbolise the different rulers of Verona: the most famous is the fountain, built using a Roman statue during Scaligeri rule and later known as the "Madonna Verona". On the far side of the square are the 14th century Gardello Tower and the Baroque Palazzo Maffei. The courtyard of the Palazzo del Comune leads on to the Lamberti Tower with its suggestive panoramic views over the city.
