Did you know?The first fortified settlement was built in primitive days on the San Pietro hills, near a river ford that linked the plains and pre-Alps area. The city was probably founded by the Euganeans or Rhaetians and later ruled by the Etruscans and Gauls. Verona was conquered by the Romans in the 1st century B.C. In 49 B.C. the town adopted Roman law and became a "municipium". Verona grew rapidly in size. Splendid palazzos were built, and the city was soon nicknamed "Little Rome".
Some beautiful sites you will want to take in while in Verona are; The Basilica of S. Anastasia, Piazza delle Erbe, Piazza dei Signori and Piazza Bra.

Have you heard?Here's a blast from the bast in Italy's pop music scene. A beauty and singer from the early 1970's singing a hit. Naturally most of us aren't aware of this past because we weren't in Italy or listening to Italian music but I thought it would be cool to hear just the same. Relax and take it in.
