My morning started with hill reps at 6 am, I really must remember I am supposed to be on holiday!
The bus collected us at 8 and first stop was to look out over the city.
Firstly the Ampitheatre, more complete than the Rome Colloseum.
July and August the Opera Festival is held here. Every night they rotate the productions, the sets for each Opera kept around the outside of the arena. Once one is finished the stage and set are dismantled and craned out before the next one craned in. Aida was due last night, Sphinxs and Pharoehs being put in position. Great that something built 2000 years ago is still being used for entertainment.
Then it was on to The balcony
Verona is a city steeped in history and worth a visit. I have no desire to return feeling that I have done the bits I wanted to, Madam however would like to return just for the spaghetti she had at lunch!
