TRAVEL – topdeck’s europe express: verona

travel - topdeck europe express day 5 veronaDay five and we were on our way to the wonderful delights of Venice when our Topdeck leader Marshall surprised us with a visit to Verona.

Famous for being the location of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, I was very excited to see that balcony and enjoy my first experience of Italy.

Marshall led the way and took us to the Arena di Verona, a Roman amphitheatre that is over 2000 years old. We then came across Juliet’s balcony.Β 

We entered a small courtyard where we saw a bronze statue of Juliet and the balcony where she said those famous words. After many photo opportunities, we learnt that apparently if you stroke the right breast of Juliet’s statue you will gain good fortune and luck in love.

On our way out of the courtyard we saw Juliet’s Wall, where visitors write their names and the people they love. From love letters to post-it notes, it was lovely to see that people were leaving their mark at what is considered to be of the most romantic places in the world.

With only a limited amount of time in Verona, Marshall Β took us to get some gelato and we explored the markets.

After some free time at the markets, it was time to get back on the coach for our next Italian adventure; Venice.
