Impressions of Verona

Juliet's (Giuletta in italiano) balcony: This is the site a gazillion tourists go visit every day with no basis in fact that these star-crossed lovers ever existed outside of literature, but tht never stops a tourist on the trail of "history!"

Casa di Giuletta: Modern lovers stick little love notes and scribble their names on the walls of the courtyard of "Juliet's House."

Castelvecchio: 14th century castle and the "ponte pietra" (stone bridge), Ponte Scaligero

The Roman Arena: In this photo you see the only standing part of the outer wall.

River Adige: This is the river that winds its way through Verona.
