Verona is a city that lives up to its legendary reputation for being full of history and beauty. Romans settled the province as a center for trade in the 3rd-century BC. In the Middle Ages, Verona flourished under a ruling family eager to fill the city with wealth and art before Venice took control in the 15th-century, followed by Napoleon in the late 18th-century. The variety of ruling parties has each left their mark on the city through architecture, art, cuisine, and culture. Your flight will land at Verona Villafranca Airport where your private transfer will await your arrival. You will then venture into the historical heart of town with a stop at San Fermo Maggiore for a panorama of the fair Verona, and the banks of the River Adige.
The original church was erected in the 8th-century and refurbished in the 11th-century, and the Romanesque style remains in the lower portion of the structure with the upper section representing Gothic architecture from the 13th and 14th-centuries. The marble façade embodies the grace and opulence of the structure and the city at large, which stands out from the verdant hills and rushing waters that border Verona. Your accommodations are situated in a gorgeous palace in the historical center near the dramatic figure of the Roman arena. In the summer, you can catch a concert that varies from rock to opera and draws crowds from around Italy, each performed inside the Roman stadium which dates back to the 3rd-century AD.
