Ancient History 

Verona has been inhabited since before 550 BCE. It became a Roman territory in 300 BCE. It is an important city as it intersects several roads.

The Roman army defeated the Visigoths here in 402 CE but the city was conquered by the Ostrogoths in 489. It was later taken by the Lombards, in 572 and became the 2nd most important city of that kingdom.

Later, in 774, Charlemagne conquered the city for the Holy Roman Empire. It remained within this Austrian rule until 1135 when it became a free commune.

The following 400 years saw many competing leagues and kingdoms take and lose Verona until 1508 when it returned under Roman rule.

Modern History 

In 1797, Napoleon occupied Verona but was driven out by the citizens. It once again became Austrian territory for a short time. However, in 1805, Napoleon retook the city and lost it to the Austrian Empire in 1814.

In 1866, Verona became part of a united Italy during the 3rd Italian War of Independence.

Today, Verona is one of the main tourist destinations in Northern Italy with its festivals, opera in the Arena, and its link to two of William Shakespeare’s plays: Romeo and Juliet and The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
