love for verona.

An amazing horse show in the center of town

A lovely depiction of Romeo and Juliet's story

The arena!

I could not believe I actually got to see Juliet's balcony.

Juliet's statue was gorgeous.  It's a tradition to touch her chest for luck.

Of course I needed a gelato break!

My flavors: tiramisu and stracciatela

First Christmas/Natale display I've seen in Italia!

View from the top of Castelvecchio

I learned of Verona's existence in sixth grade when my English class studied Romeo and Juliet for the first time.  Since coming to Italy, I have wanted to take a trip to the famed city, even if it was only to see the statue of Juliet.  This past weekend, I finally made the visit and am so glad I did.  The city is lovely and visitors can find hints of Shakespeare's story throughout it.  My favorite spots would have to be La Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's house) and CastelvecchioCastelvecchio is an amazing castle on a hill that overlooks the entire city.  While the climb to the top was a hike, the view at the end made it all worth it.
