Friday continued

Leaving the Piazza Bra, we walked along the inner wall of Verona. Different sections of the wall have been repaired or replaced at different times, but most of this stretch of the wall is about 500 years old. There were several signs and memorial plaques mounted on the wall from various time periods.

victorious in the war 1915-1918 

We wandered through town and made our way to the Chiesa San Fermo Maggiore, which dates from the 5th century and houses the remains of the martyrs San Fermo and San Rustco, who are buried in the main altar. The current Church of San Fermo was built in the 11th century.
