Venice is a city that cannot be adequately described here. Venice was center of a once powerful maritime force and there are many good guides books, which are dedicated to this seemingly floating city and its museums.

Padua is the home to one of the oldest universities in Europe and to St. Anthony the patron saint of lost things. The Basilica del Santo holds, other then the saints tomb, many important works of art including frescos and statues by Donatello. In the Cappella degli Scrovegni there are 38 frescoed panels by Giotti painted during the 14th century and are considered to be one of the greatest works of figurative art and were a strong influence on the development of European art.

Verona will be forever associated with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, but Verona has more to offer then the setting of a tragic love story. There is the Roman Arena where the Verona opera still performs in the months of July and August. Casa di Giulietta is where there is a statue of Juliet, to be touched for luck in love, and her marble balcony. The San Zeno Maggiore church has beautiful Romanesque bronze relief doors and marble bas-relief, which are not to be missed.
