Exploring Verona

A later start after a late concert and the group enjoyed the full buffet breakfast overlooking the magnificent pool setting.

At 10:30am it was time to venture into the centre of Verona, a 15-20 minute drive from our hotel. Time to visit Casa di Giulietta – the famous Romeo & Juliette balcony from Shakespeare, stroll the ancient cobbled streets and see the sights and sounds of Verona.

Lunch for some was as they wandered around and for others it was a lovely sit down in a local cafe enjoying the Italian offerings (and celebrating a birthday!). More sightseeing was fitted into the three or so hours, including seeing Verona’s oldest bridge, the Basilica of S. Anastasia, the local market place, shops in and amongst the cobbled streets and a meeting place back at the famous Arena. And of course gelato!
