I have always loved visiting cities but with a very old dog it had become hard to stay out.
During my Christmas holidays, I decided it was time to start again with the habit
and packed up ...
I made up my mind for Verona, and, if you like Italy and never went to the city, I eagerly suggest to visit.
It has got a charming ancien part full of shops
delightful old streets,
piazza delle erbe
and big, historical squares
( this one was once a Roman Forum ).
Here you can see the famous balcony where Giulietta ( do you remember Romeo and Juliet ? Shakespeare chose Verona to set the story ) leaned out and talked to her beloved Romeo ...
(a very sad story but also sooooo romantic! )
there are traces of history everywhere!
And they also provide good backgrounds for photos!!
I spent wonderful days there and hope you enjoyed the virtual tour!

Next week I will share the hotel where I stayed.
If you like to see the second part of my tour ... don't miss the post!
