City of Verona is a World Heritage Site in Italy. It dates back to the 1st century BC. The city achieved a high degree of prosperity when it was ruled by the Scaliger family from the 13th to the 14th century. It was absorbed into the Republic of Venice from the 15th to the 18th centuries.

Today Verona, with a population of 265,000, is the second most populated municipality in the Veneto region, and the third biggest in north-eastern Italy. Many of the Roman ruins in the city are now tourist attractions. The city itself is a tourist destination as it is rich in artistic heritage. It also stages annual fairs and operas.

City of Verona was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 24th session of the World Heritage Committee in Cairns, Australia, on 27 November - 2 December, 2000.
