My March trip report is finally finished. The Verona portion begins at http://mightymac.org/europe12/12europe32.htm.
We stayed only one night in Verona, but walked much of the old city and I enjoyed our time in Verona a lot. My favorite thing was the Roman Theater & Archaeological Museum. We stayed at the Hotel Milano, which has a great location within sight of the Roman Arena, but they are doing major renovation and this wasn't the best year to be there.
When we visited the Castelvecchio Museum, we weren't able to cross the old bridge because they were filing Romeo and Juliet on the bridge. We did get glimpses of the filming.
The long trip report begins at http://mightymac.org/europe12/12europe01.htm. We spent only one day in Madrid and one evening in Paris, with most of the trip in northern Italy. This was the first time that either of us had been to Italy or Spain.
