Verona_ city of romeo and juliette

There is a reason that Shakespeare placed his romantic city in Verona.  It is so beautiful, filled with beautiful piazzas and people, nestled under the mountains.  The grand sidewalk in the central square was paved in marble, as well as the long shopping district.  Verona isn’t that far from Venice, only a couple hours west by train.

Its a city I could live in for sure.

Part of Shopping district, see the crazy dressed couple of “ladies” near the Louis Vuitton windows.p1060599
