1. Arena di Verona

Forget about the Colosseum in Rome; Verona has its own edition, which is just as impressive and even better preserved. This national landmark is unknown to many, but it stands as a triumph of Roman architecture and is a true marvel. Located in the middle of the historic center of the city, the Arena is an imposing Colosseum that practically contains its original seating and external arches. Built in AD 30, it is amazing that this building has been in such a fine condition for thousands of years.

2. Castle Vecchio

Situated on the banks of the River Adige, Vecchio Castle is an extremely important structure and has been built since its inception in 1354. Serving as the primary mode of defense of the city, this castle was the greatest engineering achievement of the Scaliger dynasty. The front gatehouse of the castle is very imposing and includes a series of crenelated battlements and two guard towers. Inside, there is a museum dedicated to the history of the castle, which contains a myriad of objects and factual exhibits. In addition, there is the spectacular Vecchio Bridge Castle, which is connected to the main complex and offers stunning views down the river.

3. Ponte di Castle Vecchio

At the time of its completion, the bridge was the longest bridge of its kind in the world. Linked to the Castle of Vecchio, the bridge is decorated in the same style as the walls of the castle and features a fantastic set of crenelated battlements that you can see from the Adige River. As with most of Verona's historic buildings produced during this period, the bridge is made of red brick that makes it stand out against the city's landscape.

4. Basilica of San Zeno Maggiore

The Basilica of San Zeno is one of the most important religious buildings in Verona, primarily because of its beautiful architecture, but also because it was the fictional location of the marriage of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Located on the west side of the River Adige, the Basilica is located at the far end of Piazza San Zeno. The front façade of this church is very plain and has a wide central circular window and a beautiful ornate wooden door. However, the interior of the Basilica is truly beautiful – the floor is paved with peach and gray tiles, the marble columns hold the arches and the ceiling has a collection of decorative tiles. In addition, the Abbey is also connected to the church with a magnificent arched courtyard and a cloister.

5. Piazza Delle Erbe

Verona has a wonderful range of charming squares, and Piazza Delle Erbe is one of the finest examples. This diamond-shaped piazza is situated in the heart of the historic center of the city and is one of the key places of activity. During the Roman Empire, this piazza would have acted as the main forum for the settlement. Many important buildings line the square, including the Torre Lamberti, the Palazzo Maffeia and the Case dei Giudici. There is also a number of cafes and restaurants and restaurants.

6. Giardino Giusti

The Giusti Gardens are situated on the grounds of the palace of the same name on the eastern side of the river Adige. The palace itself is a neo-classical construction and the gardens can be found at the rear of the building. Built in an Italian Renaissance style, the gardens are some of the finest in Verona and provide a stunning contrast to the waves of architecture that exist in the region. Divided into 8 different squares, each part includes a different design and a central fountain or decoration.

7. Piazza Bra

As the largest square in Verona, Piazza Bra is one of the key tourist areas of the city and includes a large number of historic buildings , public facilities and restaurants. Undoubtedly the main attraction of the square is the monumental Arena di Verona and the open space surrounding this monument provides some wonderful photography opportunities. Furthermore, there are the Gran Guardia and the Palazzo Beriberi, which are two fabulous buildings of their own. Apart from the main buildings, there are many quaint retail and residential buildings that are painted in var. 

8. Torre dei Lamberti

Standing confidently on Piazza Delle Erbe, the Torre dei Lamberti is Verona's tallest tower, 84 m high. Construction initially began in the 1100's but the tower was in a state of disrepair and it wasn't until the 15th century that the tower was expanded and clad. Different time periods can be seen when looking at the tower as it is separated into many separate sections. A massive clock face adorns the wall facing the piazza, and the tower is topped with an octagonal dome conta.

9. Verona Cathedral

Created in a style similar to that of the Basilica of San Zeno, the Cathedral of Verona presents a bigger, bigger and more decorative building. The front facade has a similar form and composition, but it includes much more decoration and some beautiful artwork and stained glass windows. Consecrated in 1187, the Cathedral is one of the oldest religious buildings in Verona and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Although the exterior is marvelous on its own, the interior is just as opulent and decorative.

10. Castel San Pietro

Keeping a strategic location on the eastern bank of the Adige, the Castle of Saint Peter is located on a slightly elevated hill and has been occupied since Roman times. Originally, there was a church dedicated to Saint Peter, which gave the castle its name. During the 1300's, the actual castle was built as a means of fortification for the city and has stood strong for over 400 years. While the castle is no longer accessible to the public, you can still walk through its grounds, admire the beautiful architecture and enjoy spectacular views around the historic center of the city.

I had the honour of leading a Synagogue tour covering three cities in Germany: Munich, Dachau and Berlin. This required seamless coverage for our transportation needs. From the initial contact with Irro Reisen and in particular Karsten the communication was courteous, professional and responsive. Upon landing in Germany to our departure a week later the drivers were accomodating, the buses were clean and modern, and the bus service became something we didn’t need to worry about. Which perhaps is the very best compliment one can provide!
