“Senza dubbio il castello di Malcesine vanta una delle posizioni più scenografiche del Garda. Incastonato su uno sperone di roccia a picco sul lago, è sovrastato dal Monte Baldo, che arriva a quota 1700 mt. Si tratta anche in questo caso di un castello scaligero di orgine medievale. All'interno sono ospitati un museo di storia naturale e un museo della pesca. L'attrazione principale è però all'esterno, con la vista mozzafiato sulla sponda bresciana. ”

“Originally it was called the castle of San Martino in Aquaro and is, after the Arena, the most grandiose and imposing monument of the city. Assumed its present name after the construction of Castelvecchio's Castle of St. Peter. It 'a very large castle, which impresses with its imposing appearance and its shape is definitely military, accentuated by battlements along the walls and corner towers covered by the seven, in which the ancient residential use today is evidenced by the remains of the original fresco decoration visible in some rooms. Was erected between 1354 and 1357 by Can Grande della Scala II, that in an era of wars tumultuous sought to transfer his court in a safe manor. The complex consists of two parts, divided by the imposing thirteenth-century walls. To the left, coming from Via Roma, is the Palace of the Scala family, protected by a narrow courtyard with a double row of walls. At the center stands the high main tower (the tower of the keep) from which soars over the river bridge Scaliger, with three arches, and fortified battlements, which integrates the defensive system of the castle, forming a magnificent example of fourteenth-century engineering. On the right side of the structure is a large rectangular courtyard, originally intended to parade at the center lies a curious fountain in the shape of dog, a symbol of fidelity Scala. Miscellaneous ups were the vicissitudes of the castle, often used as a fortress. Under Venetian rule was intended to arsenal and garrison during the Napoleonic occupation was modified the structure and built the body of the building along the river, with the Austrians it was used as barracks for the troops of occupation.

In 1943 it hosted the Verona process by which the leaders were sentenced to death who had done depose Mussolini and by the end of the war was damaged by Allied bombing. From 1958 to 1964 Castelvecchio was the subject of a new restoration and redevelopment of a museum designed by the architect Carlo Scarpa, who with his speech has brought to light the original structures wherever possible, freeing them from the additions and highlighting the successive layers. Today is also home to the headquarters of the Castelvecchio Museum in Verona with a picture gallery, a sculpture gallery and an art library, open to the public. One of the most important collections of Italian art.”

“Visiting Verona is a dive into the ancient emotions of a city that, even with a constant and modern expansion, preserves all the values of the splendid medieval and Renaissance ages. "There is no world outside these walls..." Shakespeare was a poet, but that sentence summarize the real tourists' impression once in town. The tragic love story between Romeo and Juliet that Shakespeare set in the city under the rule of the Della Scala family, makes it one of the favourite destinations of couples and romantic tourists. In the historical centre you will experience a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, marked by the river Adige which crosses the city shaping - with an impressive system of bridges – a large and soft "S". Summer might be the best time to visit Verona, spending a night to enjoy a stunning opera in the local Arena. This Roman amphitheatre can seat 15000 people and some of the best artists in the world stage unforgettable theatrical representations, that must be attended at least once in your life! Verona is one of the oldest and most beautiful Italian cities: it counts about 250000 inhabitants and can be considered the biggest city in the Veneto region, just after Venice. Located nearby the Lake Garda, on the river Adige's banks, at the foot of the Venetian Prealps, it boasts a very good climatic position. Verona is at the centre of the main national and international ways of communication: this is the reason why it has always been an important trading centre, also thanks to the good local industrial and agricultural production. We do not have certain information about the origins of the name, but the first historic news about Verona dated back to the III century BC, when it was inhabited by the Venetians. The city became a Roman colony in 89 BC, some of the busiest Roman streets passed for Verona, indeed: Claudia Augusta, Postumia, Gallica. During the barbaric invasions, Theodoric settled in Verona is kingdom in Verona and built a sumptuous castle on top of San Pietro Hill. Even Berengario, elected King of Italy, chose Verona as his own residence. During the Middle Ages Verona became a free commune and reached the maximum splendour under the rule of the Della Scala family. After a brief domination by the Visconti and Carraresi families, in 1405 the city gave itself up the the Republic of Serenissima. The rule of Venice lasted about four-hundred years, until the French invasion in 1797. With the Treaty of Campo Formio (October 1797), Napoleon gave Verona and most of the lands nearby to Austria. Under the Austrian domination, Verona was one of the Quadrilatero's strongholds (the Quadrilatero was the defensive system of the Austrian Empire in the Lombardy-Venetia, which connected the fortresses of Peschiera, Mantua, Legnago and Verona between the Mincio, the Po and Adige Rivers). In 1866, a plebiscite linked up Verona with the Kingdom of Italy.”
