Veneto on the map
Verona was praised by Shakespeare in his most famous tragedy, but at the times of the Roman Empire it was second great city and even was called “little Rome”. Since that times Verona saved large amount of antique objects, monuments and ruins. After that, the city changed its landlords many times and it has been built and rebuilt due to their different tastes. Inside the high city walls roman and medieval history of Verona got mixed up and fused together. “Juliet’s Balcony” is just nearby the amphitheater and Renaissance palaces neighbor gothic churches. “The city of love” and roman outpost, Verona, hides a lot more than is described in classic literature.

Though this city seems to be contrary to the logic and physics, it really exists. Venice is the city built on the water, and here romance-full canals serve as roads and elegant gondolas substitute fuming cars. Stone-made houses and palaces of Venice seem to float, hiding amazing engineering under the water surface, and keeping nothing but a stunning architecture above it. The city is flooded with art, thanks to the Renaissance, the leadership of which it had taken from Florence by the XVI century. Since that time Venice became the center of Italian art of all kinds. Against common sense, fragile beauty of Venice remains safe despite great amount of people, getting here for already one and a half millennium.
