For I will raise her statue in pure gold; That while Verona by that name is known, There shall no figure at such rate be set as that of true and faithful Juliet ~ William Shakespeare

Today we left our idyllic out-of-the-way hotel in Venice and traveled to Verona. We did not meet Shakespeare’s two gentlemen from Verona but enjoyed our time with our travel group.

Verona is a city on the Adige River in Veneto, Italy. It is one of the seven provincial capitals of the region. It is the largest city municipality in the region and the second-largest in northeast Italy. Since every day seems to be a holiday in Italy the city center was crowded. There were high-end stores of every kind mixed together with gelaterias and souvenir shops.

There was a market in the middle of the square selling everything from food and drink to any clothing you could want.

We wandered the city square admiring the architecture and attempted to get near Juliet’s house, even though Romeo and Juliet were fictional characters, when you stand underneath the balcony and picture William Shakespeare’s love scene, you can almost feel their presence. It was crowded with long lines so we opted to sit and have a cappuccino instead while we watched the people and dogs rush by.

The drive to our next destination was long, we stopped briefly at a winery for a tasting and made it to our next stopping point Lake Como, which looked breathtaking.
