  Castelvecchio seen from the bridge
by Anjutka

Verona was always of high strategic importance, controlling the southern end of the easiest access over the Alps into the the heart of Northern Italy where the Adige/Etsch river leaves its narrow valley coming down from the Reschen pass and via its contributary Eisack from the Brenner, the both lowest passes over the main ridge of the Alps. And a big city in such a position was always excellently fortified, the remains of these concentric fortifications from different historical periods are seen throughout all the centre of Verona. The nicest medieval part of it is Castelvecchio.
