City of Love—O Romeo & Juliet! Verona, Italia by Grace Blooms

Chicago, Illinois, US

This place is special to me because it was the city where I rediscovered my love for opera. City where Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet was set, Verona is much more than the city of star-crossed lovers. With its rich history, beautiful architecture and unique cuisine, it was enough for me to fall in love with this charming little town. But the highlight of the trip was attending one of the shows at the ancient Roman amphitheater. I still remember the way that the singers performed under the beautiful night sky. To end the evening on a perfect note, we ate the best pistachio krapfen (donut) at an amazing little gem. It only opened late at night but that didn’t stop us from eating one too many donuts!

This place is special to me because it recently became my new home :) Best known for its famous beer festival, Oktoberfest, Munich has much more to offer than just beer and lederhosen!

I moved to Munich recently and my family will visit me soon for the holidays. Because I wanted to show the beautiful side of Munich, I created a map to share the main attractions as well as some of the more local hidden treasures :)
