Verona for a Day, the Tale of Romeo & Juliet

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful town called Verona, and It was located in between Milano and Venice Italy. In the town, there was rolling hills and cascading bridges that surrounded the beautiful nature within this historical landscape. The cobblestone streets with knights and the horse-drawn carriages made their way around all over this beautiful town. There are gardens and relaxing parks near and if you plan a trip in August, there are not as many tourists in sight. 

Although this town is very small, it makes it easy to get around. Take a walk near the calming river with one of the most romantic views around.

Also when I mentioned "knights" there are definitely knights in shining armour here. As they stand strong in front of a gorgeous colosseum. Maybe your prince charming is closer than you thought?

There is charm everywhere you look, especially going through the old town. The gateway into the town has beautiful medieval architecture.

But, Verona is not only beautiful, the town symbolizes an important Shakespearian tale in history. The story of Romeo and Juliet. As the two lovers were not allowed to be together because of their families differences, instead Romeo decided to seek out to see Juliet in the night and proclaim his love as she stood outside of her balcony.

Please dont mind my face... I had a million tourists staring my way (also found it random holding a breast) haha.

So as you can see from the image above, I am indeed holding the breast of Juliet. They say that by touching her breast it will bring you good luck. So why not?

Another part of this beautiful square where Juliet's Balcony is located, is the wall of love-locks, signatures and love notes.

So if you have visited Venice, and Milan and want to explore a smaller town, Verona is highly recommended even just for a day.
