Verona was so pretty. I loved all the coloured houses, lots of greenery everywhere and piazzas full of eateries around every corner. 

Aside from a few churches, a gallery and climbing the famous tower, I went to the (hugely populated by tourists) house of Juliet, where Shakespeare was inspired to write his story. You had to enter through a dark tunnel graffitied with love notes and arrived into the square below her famous balcony.
On Thursday evening I went to the Greek Opera Aida in the Arena di Verona. It is this huge pink marble Roman amphitheatre that seats 20,000 people for operas in the summer. It was an amazing experience being in the venue and watching the show – the set was amazing and it even had a huge section of ballet and live horses!
