Piazza Bra, the heart of Verona's historic centre, was formed in the first half of the sixteenth century. The name comes from the Lombard word "breit", which means "wide". And quite reasonably, it is the biggest square of the old city. Here are the Roman amphitheatre, the palaces of Gran Guardia and Barbieri.
