Vicenza, Padova & Verona Photos

My Vicenza, Padova and Verona Photos page features a collection of photos of these towns. The photos are varied and range from open air markets through to ancient buildings and bridges.

I have to be honest though and admit that not all the photos were taken by me, my photos sometimes don't exactly turn out like I want.

A Courtyard in Verona - Taken at the Gabbia D'Oro

Verona has to be one of the loveliest cities in all of Italy. It isn't only a great place to be a tourist in but it is one of the best cities in which to live in Italy. They do a ranking of the top cities in Italy every year - Verona is always in the top section. For more on this amazing city visit my guide here.  The photo is from the Gabbia d'Oro, the best place to stay in Verona although it is rather expensive.

Verona from the Hills

The Adige river flows through Verona and encircles the old city. There are some great bridges crossing the river too. One leads to the Scaliger Castle while another takes you to the hills overlooking the city. It's here you'll find the Roman Theatre which now hosts Shakespeare's plays during the summer months. The photo above was taken from the theatre.
