First of all, we had such a good weather. It only rained two times in the night, but I don’t think we had temperatures below 30 degrees. I got a nice tan, woe hoe. Prove:
Second, the country! It was a beautiful location. I went to Lago Maggiore around two years ago and this was just as pretty. We had a great house with a pool nearby where I swam almost every day (with a cap on my head. Never felt more stupid in my life, haha)The exhausting 14-hour car trip was definitely worth it.
On to the pictures:
Lago Iseo. Two minute walk from the house and this is what we saw:
We went into the mountains to see some waterfalls on the trail of Monticelli Brusati. We took a very muddy road and an expert road (not very clever idea) I had to throw away my shoes because they were completely ruined, haha. One of the waterfalls with me on the left and my sister on the right.
Brescia. There are some great old buildings, I’ll share two with you.
This is Castello di Brescia.
and this is Duomo Nuovo.
We went to Monte Isola, an island in the middle of Lago Iseo. We walked around half of the island and visited a castle on top of it – but it’s now a personal house so we only could see the outside from a distance.
One of my favorite days was visiting Verona. I’ve been excited about this city for such a long time now. I love Shakespeare, so it was thrilling to stand on the famous balcony with my boyfriend – and even touching Juliet’s boob. It’s definitely one of the prettiest cities I’ve seen so far <3
On the city wall:
Arena, we went inside, but it wasn’t spectacular. They were building a stage, because there are performances every day:
Touching her boob seems to be THE thing. Everyone is pushing around in order to get a picture, so of course I had to get one too. Haha. And on the balcony. It was great to see her house on the inside. I have a more zoomed picture, but I think this one is more interesting to see the whole balcony.
Cattedrale di Verona.
We saw pyramids. I know, strange right? But there is this “Piramidi di zone” with pillars with a rock on top of it. It was quite a tour with a LOT of climbing, but it was worth it.
We rented a boat for the whole day and we went for shopping for a day. My boyfriend won me a Minnie pillow in just a random attempt. It’s awesome!
So, this is a selection of everything we did. I had to go through around 900 pictures and I think these are more than enough to give you an idea :D. I had a blast!
