Verona – A place of immense beauty and history
Are you thinking about vacationing in Italy? A wonderful holiday in the Italian city of Verona has become one of the famous travel destinations throughout the world, primarily due to the famous story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. However, in this city, there are many attractions which are directly related to this famous love story, and many other luxury facilities that do not have any relation to it. The city of Verona has a population of 250,000 people and is known for its long and bloody history. Without it, the rest in Italy would not be complete. Residents of Verona are proud of the fact that over 200 years ago on Easter Monday they drove out the French invaders. German writer Goethe and the French writers Stendhal and Valery have included Verona in their travel diaries. The Roman emperor Julius Caesar spent a lot of time in Verona, admiring its sights. One of the most famous places in Verona is the Juliet's house which was built in the XIII century and is actually owned by Dal Cappello family, and the house of Romeo, which is a Gothic brick building of the XIV century. Among other famous establishments that can be found in Verona include the Fountain of Madonna Verona, built in 1368 and is one of the main symbols of the city. It’s a major attraction for tourists who throw coins for good luck and to attract love. Another very famous place to visit is the old Verona Arena, the construction of which dates back to the Ancient Rome. The magnitude of this massive structure can be compared only to that of the Roman Coliseum. Also worth a visit is the Verona Lamberti Tower (Torre dei Lamberti), which marks the tomb of Juliet and the magnificent Castle Castelvecchio, which is a delightful example of secular architecture of the famous Verona's Scaligeri era. In Verona there are many churches, squares which tourist should not miss out while on vacations. A small, but beautiful Basilica of San Lorenzo, the Cathedral, the Church of St. Anastasia, Piazza in Italy and, of course, in any case you cannot leave without seeing the Verona meeting place for the famous star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet. The house where Juliet lived for quite some time owned by the Dal Cappello family, which most likely is the Capulet’s. This house even has a balcony overlooking the courtyard. Of course, maybe this house is not the house where Juliet lived indeed, but the crowds of people come here to look at the famous house. This trip will be a memorable vacation of your life!
