Juliet's Balcony, Verona

Italian Discovery

Well, my stomach ache, due to all of the chocolate sampling in Switzerland was much better after some sleep...Today we were headed for Venice and it was going to be a long trip! Luckily we stopped to spend the afternoon in Verona, home of Juliet Capulet's balcony. The entrance to the courtyard of the Capulet family's residence was surrounded with notes, hearts and messages that lovers had written to/about each other. How cute! lol. Mom and I had a delightful lunch at a trattoria in Verona: insalata di mar, formaggio, and vino.

By the time we arrived in Venice it was pouring down rain, and we were very disappointed. So much for our gondala ride. We had a nice 5 course meal at the hotel (I'm reallly getting sick of all these HUGE meals) then went to sleep. Hopefully it will be nicer in the morning.
