Verona... our first day..

We left in the early hours for Gatwick airport - we froze!!

However, as we got off the plane, the temperature was considerably higher... a little bit cloudy and we had a storm later that evening but..... after checking in at the hotel it was off out to explore Verona.



The outside of the Arena, Verona's amphitheatre



Piazza Erbe - a place we visited often to wander through and eat at some of the any restaurants






























A pair of Mallards visited the fountain.. then flew off down the street..










Around the Palazzo della Ragione

 Piazza dei Signori









Not sure what this was all about...










The storm clouds gathered!!


and out for a stroll before eating out on our first evening!






Excellent first day and many more to come...

Lots of interesting architecture and statutes. I remember many of the sites as we were there just over a week ago.
Have fun.

I did enjoy your wonderful sequence of photos. Verona looks a lovely city. When we were in Florence last year we walked for miles, just soaking up the atmosphere and finding something worth seeing around every corner.
