After an introduction to the military history of Verona, we will walk the most monumental stretches of the medieval walls, conceived in 1300 by the Scaligeri, of the Renaissance bastions, brilliant works of the Venetian 1500, and we will admire the architectural and military improvements of the 1800s, in the Habsburg period.
We will also walk by buildings that now belong to the university, like one of the greatest expressions of Hapsburg military art, namely the building of the Austrian provianda, authentic monument of war industrial archeology, today admirably restored. There will be panoramic stages, such as the large terrace of Castel San Pietro .
Some sections of the route are uphill or in stony and uneven terrain. To participate you do not need any particular athletic skills but at least be fit and wear comfortable shoes .
