Day 1 - Verona

And so Sunday 11th May I stood freezing waiting to get on a plane for Verona.

When 2 hours later we got off the plane the heat hit us. It was a cloudy day but the temperature difference was very noticeable. We got a cab into town, grabbed a camera and headed out.







Big Roman ruin? Someone dresses up as a Roman and asks for money to pose for a photo.



The arena...... in a months time it will packed with people listening to opera.



Piazza Bra

Trish enjoying the warmth and a glass of vino...
















Piazza Erbe..... the Italians do these really well......











Palazzo della Ragione



Piazza dei Signori



Torre dei Lamberti



Scaligere Tombs









The hotel


So after a wash and brush up we hit the town






The Veronese like their dogs....





Dante








The "Casa di Giulietta"


I assume if you touch her breast you find true love?


The "balcony"





Suddenly the wind got up! We headed in for a meal (Very nice!)


This lot were busy untwisting their flag!










A good first day, many more to come!
