Roman, Middle Ages and contemporary


That girl in the red jacket is waiting the bus on Via Pallone. Behind her the high medieval walls; across the road a patch of a roman road made of smooth dark stone, just like the one under the Arco dei Gavi.
In Verona, like in most of italian towns, remote history is still visible, scattered all over the place, sometimes ignored...

It's great to be able to see 2000 years of history in one photo. In Dublin (Irlanda) we only celebrated one millenium a few years ago.

What a crazy quilt of history you've preserved here.

Might be ignored by the natives, but oh so interesting to the tourist. Thanks.
