One Day At Verona

Before we hit the 30 degrees and these photos of myself with coat, hat and scarf will start looking odd, I want to share my trip to Verona.

When we went to Italy for the New Year, we decided to go to Verona for one day. We already visited the city, many years ago. But it was a short stopover on our way back from Venice. We just stopped at the main square where you can see the Arena. Then, of course, we went to see the most famous balcony in the world. The one from Romeo and Juliet‘s story.Bonjour Chiara Travels // Verona, Italy

This time was very different. The main reason why we went to Verona was because Massimo wanted to visit one of his ex-collagues that moved from Qatar to Argentina. He is from Verona and it happened by chance that they were both in Italy at the same time.

Having someone who knows the city is always good. Travel guides are ok, but I feel that they always give you a touristic point of view. But when your guide is a resident, the story is different. You really live the city in all its glory!

In fact, this is what happened to us. Both Massimo and I had the feeling that we were in another city, totally different from the one that we visited years ago.

The tour started from a panaromic viewpoint that left us breathless. Verona seen from above is spectacular!! I managed to take some photos that honestly look more like paintings. That day was a bit foggy, but still… the view was fabulous.

Then we walked down till the center. Once you cross Adige river you reach a pedestrian area. Probably because of the period – we were there during Christmas holiday – but the streets were so crowded! I didn’t expect so many people during a week-day! But this make the city looking even more alive!

People aside, what you really notice when you walk in the streets is that there is art and history at each corner of the city. I experienced the same in Rome, which is, of course, famous all around the word for its beauties. Well, Verona gave me the same impression. It’s an old-modern city that has a lot to tell from the past.

The beauty of Verona’s architecture has been also recognized by Unesco. In fact, Verona received the World Heritage Site award.

If this images haven’t convinced you yet to visit Verona, I have one more good (but not too serious) reason. Verona is one of the few cities in Italy where you can find a Lazzari store. Are you really questioning what is Lazzari? Don’t be fool and go to read this post! 😉

For our outdoor tour I wore something that kept me very warm. This white Zara fux faur coat was perfect. So perfect that I thought to buy another one very similar. I’m talking about this amazing patchwork faux fur coat.

A little black dress and a pair of flat boots (the same that I wore here) completed the look. Well, actually what really add something to the look was the glasses. You can’t see me wearing glasses very often. But I found this pair at Qatar Optics before leaving for Italy. And since then I’m really enjoying styling the glasses with my outfits!
