Basilica of San Zeno

No one going to Verona could justify missing out on a visit to this Romanesque church that epitomizes the city: San Zeno Maggiore. Enlarged in the Medieval Period after the earthquake of 1117 with the addition of a tufa span on the West, the church's original structure dates back to the 9th century. The ornate façade is made of tuff, divided by thin pilaster strips, with a triangular pediment crossed by a gallery of mullioned windows with two lights in red marble. Featured at the center is the "Wheel of Fortune," the large rosette dating back to the 13th century. Also, scenes of Saint Zeno's life and miracles are painted in the lunette, while wooden scenes from the Old and New Testament are depicted in the 48 panels.

Giardino Giusti

The Giardino Giusti contains all the features of a typical Renaissance garden: a geometrical layout of flowerbeds and hedgerows, fountains, grottos, gazebos, mythological statues, avenues of cypresses, and a maze. Mozart, Goethe, kings, and emperors have all visited this garden, which, for four centuries, has been one of the most beautiful and well-visited in the whole of the Veneto. Designed by Agostino Giusti, the garden consists of three sections- a lawn, a wooded hill with a ravine and cliff, and landscaped terraces with a belvedere.

Museo di Castelvecchio

Castelvecchio was founded in the mid-14th century at the behest of Cangrande II della Scala as a princely residence with a fortress.

Over the centuries, it continued to have military functions - with the domination of Venice. It was the seat of an academy with Napoleon, and two new wings were added to the building. Then, with the Austrians, it played a strategic role in the fortification of Verona. In the 1920s, Verona municipality moved medieval and modern art sections from the Civic Museum to Castelvecchio. The present layout of the building and its exhibitions are the result of a major rehabilitation and construction between 1956 and 1973 by the architect Carlo Scarpa.
