VeronaSeptember 12 in Italy
Our destination today was Verona, home of Romeo and Juliette. Brad drove again and we were doing alright until we got to Verona and could not find where to park the car for Europcar. A couple of awkward intersection cross overs (who knows if we were in the right or not) and we finally found out we had to park in a car park about 10mins from the Europcar office itself. Something that they could have told us when we picked up the car. Anyway we made it.
We checked into our room, very nice but with an extremely narrow bathroom, and then headed out to explore the area for the afternoon. This was only an overnight stop so we hit the ground running. I had completely underestimated Verona when planning as it was such a lovely place we would have liked to stay a little bit longer.
We checked out some of the major sites and enjoyed walking in the older part of Verona. Best bit was the cup of fresh fruit we had for lunch. It was nice change to pizza and pasta (not that we aren’t enjoying that).
We finished our night with a very delicious dinner not far from the hotel and another stroll into the main square to admire it at night. The only thing that could have improved was the weather. It was very hot and humid, not what we expected for this time of year. What a lovely stop on our way to Venice.Read more
