Even before the advent of mass tourism, Verona was a popular destination with travellers, including those undertaking the popular ‘Grand Tour’ across Europe. In this book, Caroline Webb compares the experiences of travellers from the era of Shakespeare to the years following the incorporation of the Veneto into the new kingdom of Italy in 1866. She considers their reasons for visiting Verona as well as their experiences and expectations once they arrived. The majority of English visitors between 1670 and 1760 were young members of the aristocracy, accompanied by tutors, who arrived on their way to or from Rome, as part of a ‘Grand Tour’ intended to ‘finish’ their classical education. With the Industrial Revolution in the second half of the eighteenth century, and the resultant increasing wealth of the upper middle classes, the number of visitors to Verona increased although this tourism was derailed once Napoleon invaded Italy in the late 1790s. After 1815 and the allied victory at Waterloo there was a new flood of visitors, previously deprived of the opportunity of continental travel during the Napoleonic wars. As the nineteenth century progressed, especially with the arrival of the railway, an increasing number of visitors appeared from across Europe and even from across the Atlantic, keen to explore the fabled city of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. In comparing a myriad of varied accounts, this book provides an unrivalled perspective on the history of one of Italy’s most seductive cities.

An essential guidebook to the region. An amazing resource for anyone traveling in the area. I highly recommend using this book as a reference tool. -- S. Johnson, Amazon reviewer.Italy's northernmost zone, the Veneto includes Padua, Verona, Vicenza, plus Venice itself, which once ruled the area. Some 5,000 Renaissance villas still stand, many by Palladio. A food- and wine-lover's paradise, it's also the most artistically rich region in Italy, and the most romantic, with the art of Giotto and Mantegna in Padua, the Roman ruins in Verona, the canals and palaces in Venice itself. Bellini, Tintoretto, Veronese and Titian worked here. Experience their art and be part of their world, with the insights of an insider. Every detail is here about the foods, the sights, the best places to stay and eat. Vicenza is an essential stop on the itineraries of architecture lovers and PalladioOCOs followers, but is unfortunately bypassed by many tourists traveling through the Veneto region who donOCOt realize what it has to offer. This well-kept secret has made remarkable cultural and economical contributions to the region and merits a visit, if only for a few hours.Vicenza is an important Renaissance city with an impressive number of buildings dating back to the 1500s, many of them attributed to Andrea Palladio. It was during this period that Andrea di Pietro della Gondola came to Vicenza as a 16 year-old stone mason and through a combination of his own talent and a fine network of mentors, grew to be the great architect who dramatically transformed VicenzaOCOs urban image. Palladio was commissioned to build palazzi for the cityOCOs wealthy residents, redesign several buildings which had been badly damaged by the League of Cambrai and to make the city better reflect the influence of the Republic of Venice. His finest works in the city include the Teatro Olimpico, the Basilica Palladiana and the Palazzo Chiericati. ItalyOCOs largest lake and one of its most visited vacation spots, Lake Garda is between the Alps and the Pianura Padana (Padana plains) with the Trentino region bordering it to the north, the Lombardy region to its west and the Veneto region to the east. As one of the most prosperous cities in northern Italy and the second-most visited in the Veneto, VeronaOCOs streets exhibit an interesting m(r)lange of Roman, medieval, Renaissance and Venetian influences. And with unmistakably firm roots in classical tradition, the city that underwent significant urban development following World War II has a cosmopolitan identity that its high-fashion stores and impeccably dressed businessmen reflect. At the crossroads of two important Roman roads, Verona served as a critical strategic and commercial center for many centuries. It began as a colony of the Roman Empire in the first century BC and was joined with the Empire in 49 BC. The arena, one of the worldOCOs best-preserved Roman amphitheaters, was built to accommodate upwards of 20,000 spectators and, along with the Roman theater and the cityOCOs gates, Verona maintains its Roman identity today.a These useful guides are highly recommended...
