The Arena, the Opera, Romeo & Juliet: an UNESCO city

Verona is internationally know as one of Italy's most beautiful art cities, famous for its warm atmosphere, for the opera festival and for the world famous legend of Romeo and Juliet.
Founded more than 2000 years ago, Verona became soon "second only to Rome" itself for its richness of monuments; after the fall of the Roman Empire and the "dark ages" of the barbarian kings, Verona lived a second golden age in the Middle Ages, under the domination of the Scala family, the age to which the origins of the myth of Juliet Capulets and Romeo Montagues date back. Renaissance style flourished under the Venetian Serenissima Repubblica, and brilliant military architecture confirms the strategic role of this center until the end of Austrian rule and the last battles of the Italian Risorgimento.
