Verona







Arena

Verona, home of Leonardo Da Vinci, was our third stop in Italy. It was a bit chilly. We toured a few popular sites, sampled some wine in an old wine shop, and dined on pizza.

Fast fact: William Shakespeare's play, "Romeo and Juliette," was based in Verona.

Porta Borsari-1st Century B.C. ruin once part of the roman city gate.

Ginormous tubs of Nutella at a crepe stand.

These highchairs are in many German and Italian restaurants. I would have appreciated them when our children were younger in Alaska and Portugal!
