The city of Verona is second only to Rome in the antiquities that can be seen. This book aims to give the tourist an opportunity to visit and enjoy not only the few major attractions that a guided tour usually includes, but also many of the other interesting sights that many people do not see. In addition to the famous amphitheatre, cathedral and sights linked to Romeo and Juliet, you will also visit the monumental gateways, beautiful bridges, castles, fortresses, palaces, gardens, graves, remains of Roman villas and other places that show the magnificence of Verona’s past. By providing five different walking routes and detailed information about each attraction passed it puts a visitor to Verona in charge of the time spent at any particular place rather than having to rush and keep up with a guide. With detailed instructions of how to get from one place to another, this book is the perfect way to experience the many wonderful things that Verona has to offer without having to join costly and rushed guided tours.
Even before the advent of mass tourism, Verona was a popular destination for travellers, including those undertaking the popular 'Grand Tour' across Europe. In this book, Caroline Webb compares the experiences of travellers from the era of Shakespeare to the years following the incorporation of the Veneto into the new kingdom of Italy in 1866. She considers their reasons for visiting Verona as well as their experiences and expectations once they arrived. The majority of English visitors between 1670 and 1760 were young members of the aristocracy, accompanied by tutors, who arrived on their way to or from Rome, as part of a 'Grand Tour' intended to 'finish' their classical education. With the Industrial Revolution in the second half of the eighteenth century, and the resultant increasing wealth of the upper middle classes, the number of visitors to Verona increased although this tourism was derailed once Napoleon invaded Italy in the late 1790s. After 1815 and the allied victory at Waterloo there was a new flood of visitors, previously deprived of the opportunity of continental travel during the Napoleonic wars. As the nineteenth century progressed, especially with the arrival of the railway, an increasing number of visitors appeared from across Europe and even from across the Atlantic, keen to explore the fabled city of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. In comparing a myriad of varied accounts, this book provides an unrivalled perspective on the history of one of Italy's most seductive cities.
The fullest and most comprehensive study of Romeo and Juliet in years, this book examines every aspect of the play, including texts and contexts, thematic and critical issues, and performances.
When her personal copy of the current Finance Act is found a few metres away from a body, young barrister Julia Larwood finds herself caught up in a complex fight against the Inland Revenue. Set to have a vacation away from her home life and the tax man, Julia takes a trip with her art-loving boyfriend. However, all is not what it seems. Could he in fact be an employee of the establishment she has been trying to escape from? And how did her romantic luxurious holiday end in murder?
