Verona Cityscapes

Verona has incredible views all round the city.  Everywhere you look there is beauty, majesty, history, elegance. There is also the wonderful shabbiness of an old, old place with few pretenses.

The Roman ruins here tend to insert themselves into everything. There is a little something around every corner. A pillar, a door medallion, a piece of wall or an entire arena. The city just begs to be photographed. Over ten years of coming here and I still can’t take enough pictures. The light on this day is better or the clouds more interesting.  I see things all the time that I have missed as I walked by dozens of other times. I still walk around looking up with my mouth open as if it were my first visit.
