verona arena 

Verona, one of Italy’s most important touristic cities, is especially renowned for the legendary story of Romeo and Juliet which was originally put to paper by Luigi da Porto from Vicenza and a few decades later inspired William Shakespeare to write one of his masterpieces. Most interesting is the well kept Roman amphitheatre, simply known as the Arena, in which monumental operas and music events take place during the yearly open air Festival with space for an audience of 15000 people at a time.
Thanks to its geographical position and to the fact that Italy’s second river, the Adige traverses the city, Verona’s eminent history began more than 2000 years ago. Important and amazingly well preserved remains of past times can be seen throughout the historical city center.

Due to the amount of monuments of various historical periods, it is possible to undertake didactic tours in Verona, which are suited for school classes who wish to study a subject in depth.
The guides of Verona offer tours to discover the churches and city museums which contain unique artistic treasures. Among the museums, there are the Castelvecchio Museum, the underground excavations of the Scaligeri Palace, the Maffeiano Museum and the Archeological Museum together with its Roman Theatre.
