Wow now where do I begin........
I love Italy and had the pleasure of working for an Italian travel company many years ago.
I love Umbria and Tuscany have been to Rome, Pisa, Sienna, Florence to name just a few.
Andy and I planned a holiday to Italy with a bit of culture and Mountains to keep us both happy.
We had 2 days in Verona a week in Ortisei and a couple of days in Milan before heading home.
We flew into Milan for our train journey to Verona it was a very hot humid day.
We got the train to Milan Train station which is awesome !
Then the Freccia Bianca to Verona. Then a short taxi ride to our apartment here.
Which was in the old medieval part of the city and just a 10 minute walk to the centre.
Freshening up quickly we headed for the sights. Not wanting to waste a minute of our time there.
Verona is a stunningly beautiful city I am totally in love with it, it has knocked Sienna of the number 1 favourite Italian city spot.
We took over 800 photo's so it has been very hard to choose the ones for this blog.
Beautiful narrow cobbled streets with buildings washed in paint colours of burnt ochres and umbers.
With old wooden shutters and wrought iron balconies spilling over with ivy and brightly coloured geraniums.
Towers and Domes and chapel's and jaw dropping architecture round every corner.
An impromptu picnic sat on a wall watching the world go by, mozzarella, rocket and tomato pizza just oozing flavour.
Below the Romeo and Juliette balcony, apparently never used by them ?
The only time I have ever graffitied
Drinks by the Arena ......
The breath taking Ponte Scaligero bridge.
I wanted to share so many more photo's but the above sum up our couple of days there
Will do another couple of posts for the other two parts of our holiday soon.
