Castlevecchio, City of Verona
We made an hour’s stopover at Castlevecchio, which was the home of Verona’s ruling Scaligeri family during the 14th century. The city of Verona flourished during this Scaligeri family’s rule. During World War II bombings, this castle was severely damaged. It was repaired and restored in 1960s and walking through the castle doors gave a feeling of walking through mystery, mood, love and history.
The ‘M’ shaped merlons running along the castle gave a magical fairytale look to the Castlevecchio. The rooms of the castles are now used to display an amazing collection of art and antiquities. Peeping out of the windows we saw the Adige river flowing by a silent witness to all that has happened for centuries.
