Yes, I confess I looked for the balcony (that's the one, all right. I didn't go to London just because of the many books I'd read, but I did chase down Sherlock Holmes' office (pre-museum days) and I'd do the Harry Potter tour if I went now. I went to Stratford-upon-Avon because of Shakespeare and I always get excited when I see something from a movie - even here in the US. There are 100's of places in SF. I know there have been others.

Verona was also on the way to Venice, so the balcony was a sidelight! But I do remember the arena.

Oh, and I just remember going to the bar where the Maltese Falcon was filmed. And we have Bridges Restaurant right here in Danville - that's the restaurant where the crazy scene from Mrs. Doubtfire was filmed.

Very nice article on Verona. If I am ever fortunate to visit that beautiful city, I will venture to all the places you mentioned and have some of the Romeo and Juliet cookies.

Totally love it! If you ever get there, i strongly recommend a lunch visit to Casa Vino. Best food i ever tried in Italy


Wow, I regret not including Verona in my trip a few months ago. We went to Padova instead. Which, BTW, was fantastic, mostly for its market. But I had wanted to go to Verona. I will confess I'm planning on a trip to Barcelona after seeing Vicki, Christina, Barcelona. How can we not be inspired by beautiful movies set in beautiful places. They don't always live up, but I think sometimes its worth a try.


Great article on Verona! I loved the town and felt we didn't have enough time to see everything. Definitely worth spending a couple of days to get maximum enjoyment.

(PS I have the antidote to this post in my drafts which I shall publish soon. What can I say, great minds! :) )

  Letters to Juliet ( 2010 )

Yeah Verona city is looking quite beautiful. I have seen some part of city it the film "Letter To Juliet". Now I am very much curious about visiting it.
