Indeed, their tours will bring together Verona's past and present art, history and architecture with unconventional insights into the current city life.
Verona was dominated by the Romans, the Goths, then the Byzantines and the Longobards.
It was held by the Carolingians and the German emperors.
It became a glorious Commune and a glorious Seigniory.
It was ruled by the Scaligeri, the Visconti and by Venice;
all in quick succession, and each phase placed its mark over the previous one.
For its variety of architectural styles, none of which prevail,
Verona has no equal among Italian cities, with the exception of Rome.
(Guido Piovene, Italian writer and journalist, 1907-1974)
Verona is a crossroads of histories and a mosaic of landscapes: the gentle hills and the sinuous river embrace this chequer-board of streets with its soaring red-brick towers. Verona is naturally elegant and expresses the high quality of its lifestyle.
It is said that Verona is romantic, picturesque;
and therefore also dialectal;
it is a great city, it is at once a capital city and a provincial town.
In no other city does Veneto's folklore express itself so humorously
and vivaciously, so happy to have survived.
The human warmth of its squares and markets reveals authentic albeit unaffected humaneness: and from its old town alleys still emanate the scents and tastes of ancient recipes. In the warm season the powerful voices of the opera singers fill the Roman Arena with the sublime notes of Verdi's and Puccini's arias.
