Verona, a city teeming with art and history, is brought to you in a simple, comprehensive guide that aims not just to inform but, above all, to explain the monuments’ origins and interesting features and why they are the way they are. It is ideal both as an armchair read and as your companion around town.

THIS SIMPLE YET COMPLETE BOOK recommends what to see – and why – monument by monument and piazza by piazza: from the Arena to Castelvecchio and Santa Anastasia to Juliet’s House. Interesting sights off the normal tourist routes are also included, like San Zenetto and San Giovanni in Valle.

THE FESTIVALS AND EVENTS whose history and character attract thousands of visitors every year are here too, from the Carnival to Tocatì and the Christmas cribs to Verona in Love.
SUPERB COLOUR PHOTOS, many in large format – all recent and set next to the accompanying text – give a clear idea straight away of what you are going to see, and make a beautiful souvenir for when you come home.
34 DIAGRAMS AND PLANS complement and illuminate the text, covering all the main monuments and sights, themed walks, architectural features to look out for, and much more.
6 clearly presented THEMED TOURS with page references to the detailed descriptions of the monuments help you plan your visit quickly and with ease.
