Questo itinerario di Verona di circa 4 ore ti porterà a visitare la zona circostante al Colle San Pietro. Partendo dall'imponente Teatro Romano procedi lungo l'Adige verso Piazza Isolo, fino ad incontrare la Chiesa di San Tomaso Cantuariense, chiesa meno conosciuta ma non meno interessante. L'itinerario prosegue con la visita del Giardino Giusti, uno dei più bei giardini italiani del tardo Rinascimento, e la meravigliosa Chiesa di Santa Maria in Organo. Si sale quindi nella zona di San Giovanni in Valle per visitare la Chiesa di San Giovanni in Valle e, passando per Villa Francescatti, sede dell'Ostello della Gioventù si giunge infine a Castel San Pietro per godere il più bel panorama di Verona.
Itinerary "L'itinerario D del Comune di Verona" has 7 stops:
A) Teatro Romano
Historical Notes. The Roman Theatre was built in the last quarter of the 1st century B.C., at the foot of the Hill of St. Peter. The building site of the Theatre remained open for several decades, which was natural, given the grandiose nature of the building. The few ruins visible today are definitely capable of documenting the building’s ancient splendour. During the course of time, the building suffered damage from the weather, the cataclysms that intervened, and lay entirely buried beneath miserable huts for c...
C) Giardino Giusti
Historical Notes. The Giusti Garden is one of the most beautiful late renaissance Italian gardens, which belongs to and is the splendid annex to Giusti Palace. Began at the end of the sixteenth century, the garden was gradually improved and completed.

The Second World War hit this...
D) Chiesa di Santa Maria in Organo
Historical Notes. A Benedictine Monastery, built during the Lombard era, St. Maria in Organo is the oldest monastery known in the city of Verona. The monastery and its church were both rebuilt following the 1117 earthquake, and were again rebuilt during the period from halfway through the fifteenth century to mid sixteenth century, by the Olivetani, who had been called upon to support the abbacy following the Scala and Visconti dilapidation. In the second half of the sixteenth century the abbacy hosted twenty-six...
E) Chiesa di San Giovanni in Valle
Historical Notes. The history of St. John in the Valley (San Giovanni in Valle) is the history of three churches: the crypt goes back to the V-VI century and was built over an ancient early Christian cemetery; the second church was built by the Lombards in the VI-VII centuries and was destroyed by the earthquake of 1117; the current present day church dates from 1120 and was rebuilt over the ruins of the previous church. It was a baptismal parish with an archpriest and a “college” of friars. Architecture and Art....
G) Castel San Pietro
Historical notes The hill is located in a strategic position. It was inhabited since Roman times of Verona and continued to be inhabited during the barbarian invasions from Alboino and Rosamund, by Pepin, by Berengar, King of Italy. On the ruins of the fortress built by Berengar between the end of the century IX and the beginning of X, and at the old Romanesque church of San Pietro in Castello - which gave its name to the hill - Giangaleazzo Visconti built Castel San Pietro in 1398. The building dominated f...
