It was a damn cold, rainy and very grey day when we arrived to Verona, Italy. I was looking to photograph some nice looking pictures but found it very difficult to make any decent exposure today at all.
Calendar told us it is January 2nd, 2016. We had made a long Italy trip and arrived here from Venice (where celebrated New Years eve). Our goal was to reach Juliet's balcony... We had not a single clue where actually in city it is located.
Temperature was around zero (Celsius) - to keep us warm a little bit, we made a shopping in Verona.

The weather was against us today. I installed a tripod at one of the street corners in Verona, but rain a freezing hands didn't hold me long there
Now I know, there is at least one other major tourist attraction in Verona besides Juliet's Balcony - The Verona Arena built in 1st century AD.
The Verona Arena (Arena di Verona) is a Roman Amphitheatre in Piazza Bra in Verona, Italy built in 1st century. It is still in use today and is internationally famous for the large-scale opera performances given there. It is one of the best preserved ancient structures of its kind. In ancient times, nearly 30,000 people was the housing capacity of the Arena. Nowadays, for security reasons, the maximum attendance is of 15,000 people.
Now, if the weather would be a little bit better I most probably would enter this Verona Amphitheatre and who knows, probably made some great looking HDR photography. Now, we didn't wanted to stay a minute longer here and headed to find that Juliet's Balcony! Piece of Life after all.
