Today I visited Verona! Verona is one of the places I most wanted to see in Italy…mainly because after reading Romeo and Juliet, and seeing “Letters to Juliet” this past Spring, I really wanted to see Juliet’s balcony and the famous wall where people leave letters and notes for their loved ones. So, this morning, I took Sydney for an adventure to Verona. We caught the train (a 1/2 ride) and headed into town. After arriving at the train station we had to buy a map because we had no clue where we were going (part of the adventure I say)! We found our way though and ended up in downtown Verona (only a 15 minute walk from the train station). Despite that it was early in the day, it was SO hot out! We were boiling the entire time.
Here is downtown Verona:
Next, we had lunch! For some reason, pop is super expensive over here. This was my 5 euro Coke!
Here is Juliet’s balcony (Casa di Giulietta). Apparently, it may not be the place the Capulet’s really lived, but it was still neat to see!
Finally, this is me and the statue of Juliet, rubbing her chest for good luck! 🙂
