The Prize of Verona

By Linda Tancs

Verona, Italy is an ancient city, second only to Rome in the number of remains from the Roman Empire.  During those times, Piazza Erbe would have been the town center, or forum, around which the looming towers of powerful nobles stood.  One of those towers, Torre dei Lamberti, was built by the powerful Lamberti family in 1172.  Today it offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the city and its gilded past.
