Window Views No6-Italy Verona & Florence

Romeo and Juliet Balcony at Verona, which is a small town that has retained most of the old buildings and really takes you back in time. I like the old feeling of Verona, I remember I was standing below the balcony and looking up to the old windows, thinking of the romantics story…
Florence, a beautiful hilly city made predominantly of marble, in hues of white, green and pink. Known for its art and of course also as the home of famous artists, the most well know being Michelangelo David. I love those windows behind the  Michelangelo David. Looking up the windows and imagining the stories behind it in a sunshine winter afternoon, that was my most relaxing journey in Italy.  

 




 

Window views stop here for today, thanks to Mary who hosted Window view , I will post more window views from Italy next week.

Very nice photo of David with the old building as a backdrop. And the balcony would have been perfect for Juliet.

I visited that balcony many years ago with my "Romeo"! Love your shots.

We try to guess why aged structures are so deeply moving, but there's always something about them that goes deeper yet and eludes words. Very lovely. Thank you.

Excellent windows from beautiful Italy! They are classic! I stood under Romeo and Juliet's balcony so many years ago when I visited Verona! :) My Window View post is up now. So sorry it's so late - it just didn't post when it should have! :)
