Summer 2019-Day 41

Romeo and Juliet, here we come!

Verona is a town east of Milan. Shakespeare staged Romeo and Juliet in Verona.

Outside the station, is a statue of a giant Egyptian pharaoh . That’s a surprise!

The town seemed a modern place: tall buildings, new infrastructure, until we came to the old town. That was a step back in time.

All things aside, our first stop was this awesome pizza place ( reviewed by NY Times). It had three different crusts. 5 stars for all the crusts.

Now, it was time to visit Juliet’s residence.

Oh, boy! What a crowd all because of Shakespeare.

People wrote their names on the walls (guys: Romeo and Juliet didn’t have a happy ending).

Next was my favorite (my favorite changes like weather): Roman coliseum.

What a beauty, true piece of art. This one is the fourth largest. It hosts Opera ( pharaoh’s statue makes sense now). There was suppose to be Opera two days later and the employees were setting up the props with a crane. I would love to watch that Opera now ( my first time to Opera resulted in a sweet nap).

We sat in a shade for a while and absorbed the magnificent coliseum.

My other favorite spot was a bridge-a part of a castle overlooking a ferocious river.

” For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and his Romeo.”
