Florence, Venice, Rome. Famous, glamorous, full of art and history. Antipathy toward tourism - their life-blood
Sienna, Perugia, Verona. Smaller, friendlier, welcoming. Full of great art, architecture, food. Here's a photo of Verona as we arrived last night. This is not the ruins of a 2,000 year old Roman amphitheater. This is a 2,000 year old Roman amphitheater continually in use for 2,000 years
We are passing through Verona today (Wednesday November 6, 2013) on the way to the Dolamites but we will be back Friday morning to explore this city.
Last night I had the most unusual and one of the best meals of the trip. Our hotel recommended the place. I had shredded horsemeat with parmesan followed by spaghetti with donkey meat sauce and some of Donna's cheesecake for dessert.
