The historic Roman city of Verona was founded in the 1st century B.C. It particularly flourished under the rule of the Scaliger family in the 13th and 14th centuries and as part of the Republic of Venice from the 15th to 18th centuries. Verona has preserved a remarkable number of monuments from antiquity, the medieval and Renaissance periods, and represents an outstanding example of a military stronghold. The city’s main emblems are the Arena and William Shakespeare’s story of Romeo and Juliet. The Arena is an ancient Roman amphitheater built in AD 30 and very popular worldwide for its opera festival.
