    Day 9 Day 5 at lake Garda

    July 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Today we drove to Verona and decided to park in the central underground parking despite the rather exorbitant prices. We bought a map of the city and as it is fairly small we chose to walk round and see the sights. Handily the map marked the main attractions by number making a rather convenient walk to follow. We started off at the colosseum and went on from there stopping for lunch of pasta wine and ice cream before carrying on the walk. There were several interesting buildings, churches, bridges, statues and similar but the most commercialised by far was a balcony which they alleged was the very one that Juliet came out on ! You can only imagine the souvenirs available around the area. For a fee you could actually stand on the balcony. We didn’t. I was surprised to see in the main square, apart from a police presence there were army officers with guns! It was however a great day and we came back late and exhausted but pleased with an interesting day.Read more

    Was the courtyard packed? I vividly remember getting elbowed and shoved as we made our way in via the alley!
