The Giusti palace and garden are located in the homonymous street of Verona, near the center and a few dozen meters from Piazza Isolo. The garden, created at the end of the 1300s, is presented today in the structure given to it in 1570 by Agostino Giusti, Cavaliere della Repubblica Veneta and Gentiluomo of the Grand Duke of Tuscany. The oldest part of the garden has been geometrically set, near the water sources, and is closed by a row of cypress trees, among which is the Goethe cypress, more than six hundred years old and admired by Wolfang Goethe in 1786 and cited in "Journey to Italy" of 1817.
The Torre dei Lamberti is a 84 m high tower in Verona, northern Italy. Construction of the tower was started in 1172. In May 1403 the top of the tower was struck by lightning, but the restoration works didn't start until 1448 and took 16 years. During that time, the tower was enlarged: The more recent sections can be recognized today by the use of different materials (such as marble). The large clock was added in 1779. The tower has two bells: the Marangona signals fires, work times, and the hours of the day, while the largest, called Rengo, is used to call the population to arms or to invoke the city's councils.
