So one of the places I was really excited to see in Italy was Verona. Have you seen the film Letters to Juliet? Well it's set in Verona and it's one of my favourites so this was another reason i was looking forward to going, especially to see Juliet's balcony.
We got the bus to Verona from Lake Garda which was about an hour away. When we arrived we didn't know where to get off or where the city centre was so we got off anywhere. We ended up getting lost so had to buy a map from a little shop which helped us find where we needed to go.
We made it to Juliet's balcony which was packed with people, it was so busy! There were queues to get a picture taken on Juliet's balcony and queues to get a picture taken with the Juliet statue. It was such a pretty place though, it felt so romantic with the wall of love letters and love locks. Me and Michael bought a lock, wrote our names and the date and locked it onto the wall.
We then made our way to the Colosseum which was so amazing, I was so fascinated with how old it is and how big! I kept imagining how it was used by the romans so many years ago.
