In the shadow of Venice, we visit three great cities in the Veneto area. Padova is famed for its venerable university, precious Giotto frescoes, and pilgrim-packed basilica. Verona is a hit with aficionados of Roman ruins and Romeo and Juliet fans. And Ravenna, with its shimmering mosaics, was once the western bastion of the Byzantine Empire. We enliven each stop with a tasty dose of Italian "dolce vita." At http://www.ricksteves.com, you'll find money-saving travel tips, small-group tours, guidebooks, TV shows, radio programs, podcasts, and more on this destination.
Start at the bottom and work your way up. You'll see all the Romeo and Juliet sites, including where they lived and where they got married, along with the best views in Verona and amazing churches and piazzas.

So if you want to go up the Torre dei Lamberti or go into the Arena, you can. Just make sure you watch your times, since ALL THE CHURCHES CLOSE AT 5pm, with a siesta break from 1-1:30. You can easily see the entire city in one day. We started at the bottom (San Zeno and Castelvecchio) and zig-zagged our way up to the top, ending at the viewpoint (at Piazzale Castel San Pietro) for sunset. A little better planning would reduce the amount of walking we did (we covered more than 30,000 steps), but the town is so small that you can get across the entire thing in about 15 minutes. Here is a list of everything we saw and the corresponding timestamps: 0:27 - Basilica San Zeno (where Romeo and Juliet got married) 3:01 - Castelvecchio 3:20 - Castelvecchio Bridge (aka Ponte Scaligero) - medieval bridge with the world's largest arch (at the time it was built) 3:49 - Piazza Bra 4:01 - Arena di Verona (it opens late on Mondays - at 1:30pm, every other day is 8:30am-7:30pm) 4:22 - Via Mazzini 4:39 - Porta Borsari 5:01 - Arco dei Gavi 5:12 - Lunch at Baccha Bundus (fantastic piadinas) 5:24 - Piazza della Erbe 5:29 - Piazza della Ragione 5:32 - Torre dei Lamberti 5:40 (and 12:00) - Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's House) 6:01 - Porta Leoni 6:10 - San Fermo (upper church) 6:51 - San Fermo (lower church) 7:28 - Casa di Romeo 7:36 - Sant'Anastasia 8:27 - Duomo di Verona (Verona Cathedral 9:10 - St. Elena 9:21 - The baptistry (St Giovanni in Fonte) 9:43 - Scaliger Tombs (Tombs of the della Scala family) 9:53 - Santa Maria Antica 10:02 and 10:38 - Ponte Pietra 10:41 - Piazzale Castel San Pietro (Best view in Verona) 10:54 - Dante's statue in Piazza dei Signori This is the final day of our 11-day trip through Europe.

The precise details of Verona's early history remain a mystery. One theory is it was a city of the Euganei, who were obliged to give it up to the Cenomani (550 BC). With the conquest of the Valley of the Po the Veronese territory became Roman (about 300 BC). Verona became a Roman colonia in 89 BC, and then a municipium in 49 BC when its citizens were ascribed to the Roman tribe Poblilia or Publicia.
