Next up on our travels was Verona and Venice.

   On our way to beautiful Venice, we stopped by Verona for the afternoon and explored the setting of the famous tragedy "Romeo and Juliet" written by Shakespeare. I studied the text in year 9 and it wasn’t my favourite, however being in the midst of the supposed place of the famous star-crossed lovers was still quite the experience.

   The Romeo and Juliet sights were in a small location and overwhelmed with people. The sites included Juliet’s (quite small) balcony, a statue of Juliet that had a golden breast from being overly touched (for good luck) and a wall filled with love notes. Whilst the wall is a nice sentiment symbolising couples' love for each other, it is gross. It is riddled with chewing gum holding up love notes and I spotted a pad liner as a love note…. But all in all, whilst I felt a little claustrophobic and taken aback by the traditions at these “romantic” sites, it was still a notable experience being at the site of the famous Montagues and Capulets.

   Then we hopped back onto the bus and it was time for Venice. Luckily, I packed my trusty hunter wellies because Venice was flooded, however it added to the fun. The flood meant that many of us were piggy backing each other and wearing horrid plastic boots over our shoes and pants. Whilst the plastic boots my friends were wearing were not aesthetically pleasant, I couldn’t get over the beauty of Venice. The canals, the sea, the gondolas, the beautiful buildings and even the cobblestone grounds were an incredible sight. Our stay involved great espressos, a lace factory and a typical tourist gondola ride. It’s a place I definitely will not forget.

   Let me know your thoughts on Verona; the place of Romeo and Juliet and the incredible city of Venice.

  This posts sees the end of our stay in Italy, next up was Austria; Innsbruck, Salzburg and Vienna, which will hopefully be up soon.


Thanks for reading!

  11. Gorgeous photos. This brings back such memories. 6yrs ago my BFF and a few other friends went to Italy. We went to Rome, Florence, Pisa, Bolognia and finished in Milan. Two weeks and we covered a lot of ground. Looks like you're having a fabulous time. Carryon and have a wonderful trip.

  24. You're so lucky, I've always wanted to go! I agree with you about traditions like that being a little eh for the people who actually live there, it seems pointless to try and leave your mark on a place you'll probably never settle down in.

  31. Wonderful photos! I understand about the wall. At my school there is a wall completely covered in gum. I don't know if it's tradition or something but it's really gross.

  61. Wow, lovely post! I've always wanted to visit Venice since people say that water levels there are rising and it could be completely gone in the future. I hope this isn't true for my lifetime, but thanks for these wanderlust photos. I recently went to NYC, pics are on my blog. :)
