Verona by little train.

Verona by little train.

Starting from Piazza Bra is a little train that takes you on a tour of the major sites in the city centre. It’s a fun time for kids.( for adults there are the hop on hop off buses which would be better suited)

The train has two carriages which can seat 16-20 people each.

The rear carriage has a wheelchair lift and space so was perfect for us.

The tour takes around 30 minutes and has commentary in Italian,
English, German and French.
The boys are ready to go.
We learned about the gates to the city.
We discovered beautiful churches.

The kids verdict:

Cooper- It was accessible and we learnt about Verona history and medieval times.

Pepper- I liked that it was gold and I learnt about history.

Woody- I liked that Dad said ” don’t fall off into the cars”

Verona Day 1.

Verona Day 1.

When we first get to a new place we love to just walk around and discover. We take a map but also are happy to get lost. We were staying just over 2kms from the city centre so we decided to take a walk around. […]

Verona.

Verona.

Verona lies in Northern Italy in the Provence of Veneto. The river Adige runs through it and it’s absolutely stunning.

I never thought I could photograph so many buildings, walls and doors. Everywhere you look is beauty. Rustic red walls, geraniums spilling onto balconies and old bridges dancing over the river. Cobblestone paths, castles, arenas, grapevines, churches and piazzas.

Plus the coffee. Easily the best in Europe so far.

Not to mention the gelato.

Over the next few posts we will share what we discovered in Verona and why we all fell in love with Italy.
