Day 1 - Verona

So we finally come to the first holiday of 2016 and off to Italy for, hopefully, some sun!

The flight was at 6:45 and it was a very easy and uneventful journey and the bags were waiting for us on the carousel on arrival. We dropped the bags off at the hotel and went for a wander.

It was sunny.... it was WARM!!!

Here is the arena.... home to Opera in the summer.

There was a flower exhibition and market on in the Piazza Bra.

There were lots of dogs being walked!

The Piazza delle Erbe

The Piazza dei Signori

with its statue of Dante.

Scaligeri Tombs

The church of Santa Maria Antica which dates to the 7th century. This is the tomb of  Cangrande I

We went to the river and found not only Swallows but Crag Martins!

We had lunch out on Piazza delle Signoria.... ok when in Italy drink Prosecco!

So out for dinner!

Juliette's house

We had a nice meal to end a good day.
