Roman Verona. Scaliger Verona. Verona was elected as a UNESCO World Heritage for its urban structure and architecture. Today Verona is an example of two thousand years of history, of superb works of art created over the centuries, integrating with and complementing each other and extending, in different stages, the concept of city fortress. Centuries have passed and Roman buildings have been replaced and incorporated in Medieval buildings. Verona has many monuments dating from Roman times, all built after the 1st century B.C. when the city was rebuilt in the bend in the Adige River, a river that continues to flow, undisturbed, in its embankments, delimiting and, at the same time, crossing through the city that is tied to it, just as it is tied to quaint Ponte Pietra. In the 14th century the hegemony of the Della Scala Lords left Verona a dowry of buildings, churches and monuments still visible today.
