While Rochelle and I were staying in Desanzano we took a bus to Verona.   The journey took about an hour but it was the opportunity to see some of the countryside.  We didn't quite find the correct place to get off the bus but we eventually found the Arena.  As you can see  Verona was fairly busy with tourists.   
We made our way to Juliet's house and again it was packed with tourists but we made our way through the archway into the courtyard where there is a statue of Juliet and of course the balcony.

There was also a wall of Love Locks in the courtyard.
The view from Juliet's house was beautiful and away from the crowds Verona is very pretty.

  1. I loved Verona when we visited when we went to Venice too, did you stand on Juliet's balcony?

  2. Yes we stood on the balcony and looked down on the crowds of tourists.
