Most people hear of Verona in the context of the tale of ‘Romeo and Juliet’. These two protagonists of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy belonged to rival families from Verona. It seems Shakespeare was inspired by a true story from Italy. Standing testimony to this, is the house at Via Cappello, 23.. the house of Juliet (or Giuliette as the Italians would spell) marked by Juliet’s balcony.
The town itself retains an old-world charm, and a beautiful landscape..romantic indeed! Besides we landed there at night, when the lamps were shining, the stone paths gleaming, old monuments lit up, and almost a full moon.
While at the top, I saw a tree covered in white flowers on a further hill.. and of course we must go there..
For us, Verona is now about the magical trail that appeared before us, more than any famous story.
