Verona and Venice

A long time coming, but here is what I got up to when I visited Verona and Venice with my friend Immy!

I met Immy on the Sunday morning, back in Venice.

However, the heat did not detract from the insane beauty of the place

IMG_3730After spending the afternoon in the sweltering heat in Venice we were actually pretty relieved to get on an air-conditioned train to Verona.IMG_3743IMG_3747As you can see, Verona is stunning. It is such a romantic city, and not just because of the significance for Romeo and Juliet!IMG_3748IMG_3751IMG_3755After spending the night in a BnB, we got a coffee from a very Italian cafe and planned our day.

We also had a look at Castelvecchio.

(what you cannot tell is how terrified I was when this photo was being taken lol yay for heights!)

After this it began pouring with rain and we had to run for cover in the many shops Verona has to offer! I was actually pretty jealous, the only vaguely affordably priced shops in Florence are Zara and H&M.

I had a lovely two days with Immy, and I expect to return to Verona pretty soon! I thought it would be more gimmicky what with all the Romeo and Juliet hype, but it was actually very quaint and beautiful.
