Along the banks of the river Adige one can find the city of love...

...with all its marvels. The majestic Arena is in Piazza Bra, the Roman amphitheater that for decades has hosted the prestigious summer opera season. Very close by is the House of Juliet with its famous balcony from Shakespeare's famous tragedy Romeo and Juliet. Piazza delle Erbe hosts the colourful market. Piazza dei Signori with its Palace of Cangrande, the Loggia of Fra Giocondo, the Palace of Cansignorio, and the Palace of the Ragione are a testimony to the great splendour that this city once lived during the rule of the della Scala family. The Duomo is also worth visiting, as it houses an important altarpiece of Titian, not far is also the Basilica of Saint Anastasia and the Roman Theatre. Don't forget to visit the Basilica of San Zeno, a fascinating example of Romanesque architecture, and Castelvecchio, the ancient manor house erected in the fourteenth century by Cangrande della Scala.
