I Remember ... Verona

We packed up, got back on the road early in the morning, and left Venice behind. Our first stop of the day was Verona. The weather was a little hazy and overcast as we left Venice but by the time we arrived in Verona it was sunny again.

Verona is probably best known for its connection with Romeo and Juliet. However, this 2,000-year-old town is rich with genuine history and ruins within an easy walk through the town core near the river. I enjoyed this quaint town and would definitely put it on my list of places to return to in order to spend more time exploring the ancient sites.
Even though you know the House of Juliet is bogus, you still are drawn in to the courtyard to see the balcony, have your picture taken with her statue, and look at all the letters to Juliet posted on the wall.

We had a short time to explore on our own before reboarding the bus at 10:30 a.m. Our next destination: Milan.
