Also, you can see the building which served as the former headquarters of the Town Hall, till the 12th century, as well as one more symbol of the Republic of Venice – St. Mark’s Lion standing on a white marble column. But, perhaps, the most prominent attraction of the piazza is the Torre dei Lamberti – the highest construction in Verona. The tower is open for visitors, offering an impressive panoramic view over the city. As well, the tower has a clock which was added in 1779.

Spend the second half of the day by discovering the magnificent Verona Cathedral, which represents sooner an extremely rich architectural complex rather than a single building of the cathedral. Not all parts of the cathedral are open for the public, and some of them are open only in certain period of the year, but the exterior of it you can admire anytime you want. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary Matricular and represents a combination of Romanesque and Gothic styles. The Verona Duomo is often visited for its most important painting: the big Our Lady of Assumption painted in 1535 by Titian.
