Arrived at Verona airport and got a taxi to our hotel.. its not far but when encumbered with heavy cases it's well worth the money.
So dumped our bags, grabbed cameras and off out into the sunshine and warmth.
and there was a flower market on for three days in the Piazza Bra... the floral decorations were beautiful
and some food stalls... cheeses and meats on this one :)
and not ice cream, but cheese cones!!
so off for a further wander
In and around the Piazza delle Erbe
The Piazza dei Signori
and there's a statue of Dante...
The Scaligeri Tombs - amazing detail..
Chiese Santa Maria Antica
Inside the Santa Maria Antica church
and then along the Arno River. We saw Swallows and also Crag Martins... wonderful :D
and a stop for lunch back in the Piazza delle Signoria - and our first glass of Prosseco - nice one Pete :)
and a very young Blackbird Chick
Then back to the hotel to unpack etc before heading out for dinner....
Juliet's Balcony at Casa di Giulietta - associated with Romeo & Juliet's famous scene.
'Sheep' Easter Eggs..
Torre dei Lamberti with an almost full moon above it
