A few hours with Romeo and Juliet and Verona – Wanderlust @56

“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”– Randy Komisar

Verona is a city in Northern Italy’s Veneto region and is best known for being the setting of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. It has the tiny balcony overlooking a courtyard which is so busy you can’t even seem to appreciate it. It also has a place where lovers put their love locks or sign their names on the wall signifying their undying love for each other.

The bronze statue of Juliet in the courtyard of the Cappelletti house in Verona. They said that if you rub the breast of Juliet, the luck of your love will turn around. But because of this tradition, this statue was damaged, prompting Verona to order a replica of this bronze statue.

Cimitero Monumentale, a cemetery near the city centre of Verona.

This is the Verona Arena, which is a Roman amphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy. This was built in the first century but is still in use today for opera performance, for international concerts, etc When we went there, they were setting up big speakers for a concert that is why there were so many people, and it was very busy.

Piazza del Signori is the main square of Verona

This is a monument of Berto Barbarani, an Italian poet who wrote many poems in the Veronese dialect.

Bright colourful buildings in Verona city, orange houses, green shutter windows, cafes, restaurants. My neck got tired as I was looking up all the time, impressed with all the structures and texture of the buildings.

A short few hours and it is time to leave for the next country.

There is more to see in Verona, but didn’t have time.
