Experience a time where, in the ages of darkness and fear, nobody dared to go out. See Verona from a different perspective and discover some of the darkest times that occurred there.

What happened in the Arena in the Ides of March of year 54 AD? Why were 176 people, including children, burnt alive on February, 13th, 1278? What happened to the Jewish family who lived next to the Synagogue during WWII? Whose corpses were those found in the Tribunal Courtyard?

Your visit will include the Roman amphitheater, the old Jewish Ghetto, Piazza Erbe with its pillory, passing the place where Mastiff I was murdered, you'll reach Piazza Dante and learn about the old orphanage, see the arch where the torture instruments were exposed. Then walk to the Scala Family House and Graveyards, internal courtyards where dozens of beheaded skeletons were found, and much more.
