In tne background stands the church of Santa Anastasia. Verona is the city where Shakespeare set his famous tragedy Romeo and Juliet, and this is one of the reasons why it has become à traditional rendez-vous for lovers and newly-weds. If you want to see the famous balcony just go to Via Capello 23, right in the heart of the old city. À town rich in history, Vårîïà was the most important centre of Northern Italy under the Romans. Notable architectural monuments dating from that time are the Porta dei Borsari, the Theatre, and of course the Arena, which in the summer acts as host to à highly esteemed and amazingly spectacular opera season. The plan of the city, notwithstanding the passing of the centuries, remains very much the same as it was in Roman times, with its centre at Piazza delle Erbe, which used to be the old Roman forum. Verona can also boast of an impressive amount of Romanesque architecture such as the church of San Fermo Maggiore, and the church of San Zeno, which has been rebuilt seven times, the last time being in the 12th century.

I can feel the temperature, the slight dampness in the air. I can smell a clean air with a bit of mustiness. Its so quiet there. This painting has such feeling.
Hi Soryn: I've been a fan of your work since you first exhibited on eBay about 10 years ago. I'd love to own one of your paintings, and wonder whether you are planning on listing more seascapes? Thanks very much,
