After finally leaving the beautiful Northern lakes, it was east to the city of Verona, which inspired Shakespeare to write Romeo and Juliet and the cute little city didn’t disappoint. We arrived fairly late in the afternoon and took the bikes off to go and explore.
The view from the main bridge looking over towards the old town is amazing and all the different coloured houses set against the old picturesque bridge with the river rushing by is certainly a view not to be missed.
The town itself is full of charm and character with the many beautiful piazzas and the huge amphitheatre famous for opera shows and many exclusive restaurants for people to enjoy dinner before going to see a show. Its all very impressive.
The city has a very laid back, romantic feel to it and we could see why Shakespeare was inspired to write Romeo and Juliet here. after a bite to eat and a visit to Juliet’s inspired balcony and the tunnel of love, we just about made it up to the castle with great views over the city for sunset. a wonderful afternoon spent in a charming little city.
