Juliet's balcony in Verona

I suspect the key to really appreciating Verona is to spend more than three hours there, but what do you do?

The real story here is the miracle that I made it to Verona at all -- I can still feel the thrill of fear (better than an alarm clock for waking me up) when I realized we had literally one minute to meet our group in the lobby and leave. We made it, barely. I spent the day without make up, brushed hair, or my phone. Fortunately I was fully clothed, my camera was already in my purse, and I swiped a croissant from the breakfast buffet on the way out.

We had nothing like enough time in Verona, and but we were there long enough for me to want more. We saw Juliet's balcony, but I thought the real highlight was the city itself. It's classically European: the remnants of Romans and Medieval settlements, the narrow streets, the colors. My photos don't quite capture the charm, but I hope to return some day and try again.
