For this post I'm sharing photographs from the town of Sirmione, which is probably the most beautiful place I have ever been, the Garda lake and Verona.
Sirmione, which is a neat small town, blew my mind. It was like something you only see on postcards, but never with your own eyes. Insane - that's how it felt going there.
Verona was a whole lot different: it was a big city, with a lot of people going to work in a quick pace. Verona was probably the place where I wanted to go the most before the trip, because I was always fascinated about seeing Juliette's balcony (yup, I'm a closeted romantic) but I can't say that it was all that special. It was okay, but not wow kind of a place. There were a bunch of screaming children and tourists and when I wanted to look closer at the Juliette's statue I had to make my way through a huge crowd of people. We didn't spend much time in Verona and had to head back to our little hotel in Lido di Jesolo for our supper.
Next stop: Vincenzo, Podova and Bassano del Grappa!

|For 3 euros you can buy a little box of fresh fruit - they were the tastiest I have ever tried|
|I think I'll never get used to the palm trees|
|Yup.. more palm trees|
|Italian gelatto - the ice cream isn't famous for nothing|
|Verona: The entrance to Juliette's courtyard|
|A wall where lovers from all over can write their love confessions|
|And of course the famous little ol' gal we all came to see|
|It was hard to find an empty street in Verona. All the other streets were crowded|
