Verona, Italy; March 29 - 30

After a week in the Italian Ortler Alps, a city break was a good change of pace. We stopped for an overnight stay in Verona before heading back to Zurich. We spent our short visit indulging in Italian food and exploring the city.
Loving the roadside scenery on the way to Verona.
No trip to Italy is complete without this...
...or this
Amazing value and quality for a three course dinner set menu at Papa e Cicia.
Perfect weather to do nothing at Piazza Delle Erbe.

And we did fit in a little bit of culture. Verona is best known as the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
Watching lovers announce their love for each other along the hallway leading to Juliet's house.
Q couldn't resist announcing his own love.
It's out there for the whole world to see - someone loves Laure
Juliet's balcony
Rubbing Juliet's boobs for good luck.

We found ourselves really enjoying Verona. The city center is charming and very walkable. Since the city isn't overrun with tourists (at least in late March), it allowed us to relax, enjoy the food, and wander around in the evening with the locals.
Classic Italy
Nothing planed other then to wander around the city.
