One of the most popular and strangest attractions of Verona is Juliet's balcony. Obviously Shakespeare pretty big deal here but the fact remains that we're talking about a fictional character here. Still, that doesn't stop hordes of people swarming into the tiny courtyard and adding to the endless graffiti, regardless of the fact that what they're photographing is the balcony of a house in which the family Juliet's may have been based on once live. Although apparently its the wrong family, anyway.
A little footsore from a days wandering, we retire to a great little restaurant where Tess had eated previously here and had what must be one of the best meals we've eaten on the whole trip - wholesome traditional Italian cooking done deliciously and served with charm. Nice to enjoy the good side of Italy for once...
