So that we reach in Verona, we should cover 290 km roughly. Because the tiredness of the days  makes perceptible its presence, we decided to move from autostrada, closed street of rapid circulation.

Without we have pictures of Italian province in this way, late at the midday, we passed autostrada and we entered in provincial street, with a view to visit Laco di Garda, one big lake few kilometres outside from Verona. This lake constitutes tourist resort and its beaches is available for swimming.

We reconstructed forces and moved for Verona. If you want to reach in the centre of the city, follow one big straight line, which leads you, to the old gate of entry of the city with the characteristic clock. We immediately left the bike afterwards the gate, where they were and other bikes. In front is opened a enormous square also was the old arena of the city. The visitors were many and generally in the square existed intense mobility from wandering vendors, musicians and certain events that became in the space of the arena. We followed the plates that led to the house of Juliet. Crossing the city, you observe small narrow streets and old buildings that lend particular beauty in the landscape.

Approaching in the house of Juliet, it becomes immediately perceptible that you are near because the people are many. The house functions today as museum, but the hour where we visited it ,was closed. Thus we satisfied in to pass the gallery of entry, which is full with self-adhesive parers of the visitors, that have a certain wish, and to find in the courtyard, where it dominates the statue of Juliet. The custom ordains the visitors to touch the breast of Juliet, so that it brings to them luck.
Coming out from the house in right, exists a smaller wide, but with the same action and liveliness of central. We walked there and return to the central square.

We moved to the arena, but because it had begun certain events, we could not see it from means. We sate in some coffee-shop of the square with view the arena.

Before we leave from the city, we accidentally met four friends from Cyprus. The next day was substantially the finally day of the travel. We would return in Venice, where we would meet Kyriakos and Dimitra, where they also finished their own travel.
