travel tuesday: verona, italy

Today is all about Verona. A city whose name I know only from Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona (apparently it is also the setting of Romeo and Juliet). Verona is rich in Roman history and architecture. It is situated in Northern Italy and until the 1800's was transferred back and forth between the Austrian and Italian reign.

Around the city in Verona.

I love the the long skinny trees in this garden. Very Tuscan (although I am not sure if Verona is actually in Tuscany.)
