A stop over in Verona on my way to Venice resulted in a town overflowing with runners!
A marathon was planned for the day after my arrival!
You can’t plan everything so the crowds were larger, the wait for gelato was longer but the added benefit was a piazza filled with booths and music.
Verona is a pedestrian city and it appears the entire town stroll along the shop filled streets from one piazza to the next.
I found it a city of textures and colors. The building are the monuments in this city.
|The arena is the focal point of the central piazza and they start the famous operas next month|
|Looking up you can see the building behind you in the reflections|
|You forget there is a strong river running through Verona. Strange there are no cafes or restaurants along the river front|
