Today's plan is to see Verona. The bus left us off and we saw a beautiful church together, "The Basilica di Zeno Maggiore". Then we were on our own from 10:30 to 4:00. There was some confusion because the icon of the church on the map was not the church we thought it was but we finally got straightened out--no wonder none of the street names were right. (In other words, everyone got lost.) When I got to the main attraction, the arena or Colosseum, I jumped on a small tour trolley and saw the town, then checked out the Colosseum, shopping area and returned to the bus stop in a nice shady park and had an aperitif.
We are back to the agritourisimo at 6 and supper is at 7:30.
Sandi brought Prosecco to our room and we had a little appetizer. No time now for the pool.

|View from the Colosseum towards the city gate, old entrance to the city |
and part of the wall that typically surrounds towns built at this time.
