Starting from the 2,000 year-old Arena, the Roman Amphitheatre built some 26 years before the Colosseum of Rome to host fights between gladiators and between men and beasts. Move along Via Mazzini, the main shopping street of Verona, where the 19th century Loggia Arvedi is to be found, and get to Juliet's House, where the inside courtyard with the famous balcony and the statue can be seen.
Then, passing through other internal courtyards, see the Scavi Scaligeri, excavations of the Roman and Medieval city, partially visible through the glasses, and the Porta dei Bombardieri. Next, move to the Scala family Tombs and their first house in the nearby Piazza dei Signori. There, take a look at the 12th century City Hall, the Lamberti Tower, the 15th century Loggia di Fra'Giocondo, and the 14th century Palazzo del Tribunale.
From there, move to Piazza Erbe, (the vegetable market), the ancient Roman Forum. There you will stop by "Berlina", the place where criminals were exposed, the Fountain of Madonna Verona, (symbol of the city), the 14th century House of Merchants, the Guard Tower of the "Gardello", the Baroque XVII century Palazzo Maffei and the frescoed Casa Mazzanti. Finally, reach the Well of Love with its sad story about two lovers.
