Verona... the city of Romeo & Juliet

Known as piccola Roma (little Rome) for its importance in imperial days, Verona is truly one of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Wandering her streets, we came to Piazza Delle Erbe, where storm clouds were brewing behind the baroque Palazzo Maffei, decorated by statues of Greek gods. Situated in front is the majestic St. Mark's Lion, the symbol of the Republic of Venice.
