Verona is an important tourist destination declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its urban structure and architecture. The places we recommend a visit to are the splendid and imposing Arena, a Roman amphitheatre located in the historical centre of Verona, still perfectly usable and home to the famous Opera Festival where every summer thousands of people from all over the world can enjoy stagings by the best contemporary directors and set designers and the best performances by international opera singers. The famous balcony of Romeo and Juliet made famous by William Shakespeare’s tragedy. Castelvecchio, a castle considered the most important military monument of the Scaligera seigniory. Inside today is the civic museum with about thirty exhibition rooms where you can find sculpture, Italian and foreign paintings, ancient weapons, ceramics, goldsmiths, miniatures and the ancient city bells. The Castelvecchio Bridge or Scaligero Bridge belongs to the Castelvecchio complex to reinforce its ancient defence system. It was built in red brick in the upper part, like all medieval monuments in Verona, and in white marble in the lower part. The Adige River flows under the bridge. Also built to cross the Adige but in Roman times is the Ponte Pietra bridge. The only Roman bridge remaining in the city. It has five arches and the construction of its first structure, probably in wood, can be dated to the pre-Augustan era. The Cathedral of Santa Maria Matricolare, also known more simply as Duomo di Verona, is the city’s main church. It is the first Christian church built and is located in the medieval area of Verona. The Basilica di San Zeno is considered one of the masterpieces of Romanesque architecture in Italy. It has three levels and the current structure was built in the 10th-11th century. Among the many works of art, it houses a masterpiece by Andrea Mantegna, the San Zeno altarpiece. Finally, the Church of Santa Anastasia, near Ponte Pietra, is a Gothic-style church. Inside is a basilica rich in paintings, frescoes and valuable architecture.
