Travel: Verona, Italy

Today we traveled by coach to Verona, Italy.  It was a quick trip on the A4 autostrada.

Verona enjoys its status as the crossroads of Northern Italy for over two thousand years.  It’s home to the worlds third largest amphitheater built in 30 AD.

It has been overlooked by travelers for years until recently.  Today thousands of visitors fill the streets, alleys and marketplaces.

We found the city to be relatively compact with an impressive Roman amphitheater, a vibrant city center including a Duomo, an ancient marketplace and excellent restaurants.

Here are a few pictures from our outing.

Church of Sant’Anastasia built in the late 13th century along the banks of the Adige River. The second longest river in Italy.
The 2000 year old Roman Bridge was bombed on the last day of World War II and rebuilt from the recovered marble.

  1. Jim and John, we were in Verona years ago and are happy to be reminded of its beauty. Glad the increased number of tourists has not ruined this lovely city by the river.
