Verona's imaginary past

Juliet’s balcony. You know, that Juliet from the fictional play by an enlgish writer, who may have even had a ghost writer.

Jammed with tourists from dawn ’til dark, the square has a statue of Juliet with a breast polished by the groping of thousands of tourists. Classy.

I suppose it keeps them off the (other) streets!

Lido

Rachel wanted somewhere to run. The Lido is about the only open space in the area where you don’t need a map to find your way around.

I hung around taking photos. It was a cold, wet day, and out of peak season, so the beach houses were empty. There were several rows of these behind each other. It must be utter hell in peak times!
