Friday Photo – Verona Arena, Italy

We travelled to Verona by train from Venice, a scenic ride culminating in the lovely city of Romeo and Juliet.

The Arena is home to al fresco opera most years in July & August.

Sadly there was nothing on when we went so we had to satisfy ourselves with a Maria Callas exhibition instead, showing photos of her performing the likes of Tosca, Aida & Madame Butterfly in the iconic venue.

I would love to return to see the opera in the flesh one day – best start saving now!

Verona Arena, Italy


  1. Did you go and see Juliet’s balcony?

    1. Indeed we saw the flower box & graffiti. Crowds were ridiculous.

      1. And a wall for lovelocks and a security guard making sure people used only the designated wall. Oh, and a souvenir shop!
