Other places to visit in Verona
The land of Romeo and Giulietta has many other attractions. Standing from far away, the red of the ancient Roman architecture of the Roman Arena will enchant you immediately.
It is 139m long, 110m high oval, 32m high, with 44 rows of red marble seats stacking from high to low, containing over 30,000 audiences.
Built in AD 30, which is an arena, today there are still many guides leading tigers and lions into the battle with the Roman warriors.
For a long time, the period of the swords clanged, the blood was thrown back to the ball for the concert, bustling festival. If you meet the warm summer night you will be attending the great opera outdoors in the center of Arena.
Perhaps, only Castelvecchio bridge is the only bridge here is built with warm red bricks, marble slabs under the feet, with two sides of the bridge over the Adige river about 120 meters long. Legend has it that Cangrande II della Scala built this bridge to escape easily when the accident.
The war destroyed the original bridge, in 1949 newly rebuilt, in the afternoon; you walk slowly on the bridge and hear the murmuring river, the sun shining splendor, the wind blowing cool.
From the bridge to Castle Castelvecchio (called the old castle in Italian) is also full of Gothic red brick, not a brush, but a durable defensive place of the battles.
Verona is known popular when the Unesco listed in the world heritage. everywhere you can see the ancient and majestic architecture, meticulous and delicate carving.
Porta Borsari, the triumphal arch of Verona is different from the beauty of the Triumphal arch Paris, it is small but graceful, set off the style of the first century BC. Three floors with the main floor below have two high domes, two upper smaller floors than the 12 small windows.
The fine white limestone combined with the carved outlines reminds us of the gates of the god Jupiter in Greece.
The gate of Arco dei Gavi
The gate of Arco dei Gavi is different from Porta Borsari, it includes only a single dome but this was the main entrance to the city in the past. The Roman Theater, built along the Adige River, exudes the admiration of the ancient architects, the stage of the theater, its back to the river, and its two walls and river overflows.
The stage is the stone seat row built upstairs high on the hilltop opposite the river, the audience can both watch the opera and scenic river view.
Verona has many churches such as San Giovanni in Fonte, San Lorenzo, San Fermo, Santa Anastasia, Sant’Eufemia, and Santa Maria in Organo, the most prominent is Santa Maria Matricolare. Blending between Roman and Gothic style, the façade of the church is very beautiful, with three large roofs divided into three majestic levels. Inside the soaring ceiling is a full-color painting, it like a small museum displaying countless works of art.
If the Verona church is rich, the Verona squares are more characteristic of Italy and quietly full of doves picking bread from visitors. Having a coffee at Piazza dei Signori (or Piazza Dante) is interesting; this square is surrounded by a number of buildings, monuments, and gardens.
Just tasting Verona enough cinnamon, olive … and watching the statue of Dante 3m serious and thoughtful, with a little eye to see the Palazzo del Comune, Cansignorio palace, church of Santa Maria Antica. Next to the palace Palazzo del Podesta, which people like to call “Dante’s house”, next to the Palazzo del Podesta – Roman council building.
But to see the city overview, you have to climb Lamberti Torre tower height of 84m built in 1772. Climbing 238 steps to the top of the tower, there is the elevator for anyone who is weak health, at the top of the wind blowing, so more 2 lower levels for you definitely stand firmly taking scenery.
The tower has two bells, the big one called Rengo to shake the whole council meeting; the little Marangona signaled the fire and the hour.
Courage to climb next to the big bell is very fun, but some of the tower guards, he reminded me not to bump into the ring, it is noise. Paying 5 Euros (6 dollars) for visiting the tower, many people guide me to take only 16 dollars (18 dollars) that can visit all the attractions of Verona.
Looking at all the streets, alleys of paved stone, serene tiles of Verona, I do not count how many historical monuments, churches, palaces. The cafes, the bar where you can meet anywhere, the cafe Delle Erbe and Campidoglio from the scented perfume, enjoyment, cool beer.
The most strange is the market square Piazza delle Erbe, sold spicy, dry herbs, fresh … Verona atmosphere is too pure, no car smoke, sometimes make you think you are stopping better more about the past thousand years ago.
It is said that Giulietta’s hometown, Romeo’s lover, has to change its name, “Historical city” is new to Verona.
