Verona and its surrounding territory

Verona boasts an enviable geographic position at the crossroads between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean countries of the south. Located in the Veneto, a region equally rich in beautiful landscapes (the Dolomite Mountains, Lake Garda, the Lombardy Plain countryside, the Venice Lagoon, the Po Delta, the Adratic Sea), as it is in great cities of art and culture (Vicenza, Padua, Bologna, Trento and, of course, the magical Venice). Add to the mix, the countless charming ancient towns that dot the region (Asolo, Castelfranco, Marostica, Bassano del Grappa, Este) and the Veneto is a place not to be missed by any visitor to Italy.

The history of Verona

Verona's history dates back to ancient times when the Indo-European population (the Euganei and Reti and possibly also the Etruscans) settled at the place where the course of the clear river slowed, caressing the fertile hills that surrounded it. The natural resources of the area made it an ideal location for a new city, the nucleus of which was built atop the hill where San Pietro castle now stands. Verona's first significant contact with ancient Rome was in 216 BC, when the city allied itself with the Romans at the Battle of Canne. However, it did not officially become a Roman city until 49 BC after which time, because of its political importance and magnificent monuments (second only to Rome), Verona became known as Piccola Roma (Little Rome).
