Fresco Museum and Juliet’s tomb
The former convent of San Francesco al Corso is now converted into a museum of medieval frescoes, and also designated as the final resting place of the timeless Shakespearean heroine of Romeo and Juliet. Between the 14th and 17th centuries, Verona was a city with a huge amount of frescoes in public spaces. The city had a great number of fragments from various buildings in storage, and they are gathered here in this museum. The oldest pieces here date back to the first century, but there’s also pieces from medieval, Renaissance and Baroque eras.
