Picture Perfect

I think it's quite obvious by now that my blogging plans for my stay here in Italy were slightly too ambitious ;) Between my work here at SBI, spending time getting to know the students, and generally enjoying Italy, blogging keeps falling lower and lower on my to-do list. I did promise you all pictures, though. So pictures I will post. Feast your eyes:

What I see on a normal day

In front of the Arena in Verona

Inside the Arena
Juliet's Balcony

 The plaque at Romeo's house (which isn't open to the public and thus was rather disappointing)
One of the Sacile Arches (which looked suspiciously like really fancy crypts that happened to by outside)

It's 424 steps to the top of that tower. And, let me tell you, when the bells start to toll while you're in it, it's scary

There are flowerboxes in all the windows and balconies

Behold :)

The Roman Theator (or Teatro Roma)
Some of the ruins

 In the ruins

Oh the views of Verona...bellisimo!


  1. Wow, I'm jealous. Those are some beautiful photos, I hope you are having a great time!

    1. I'm having a wonderful time! The pictures don't do justice to the real thing.

  4. Are there going to be some new (Italian influenced) Words for Wednesday?

    1. As much as I would like do an Italian-style Words for Wednesday series, I simply don't have the time. My normal days are at least 16 hours long so, by the end of the day, blogging is the last thing on my mind. Sorry to disappoint!
