Two gentlemen (and a lady) in Verona

Today, went to Verona with the Usual Suspects to meet up with the father of the one usual suspect and his second wife, to get squired around the town. Today I touched:
1: a Roman coliseum
2: a medieval church
3: a rococo pipe organ
4: a renaissance icon of christ
5: a modern statue of a local historian of note

Also saw the alleged home of Juliet (you know: Romeo and ____), which was a 13th century roadhouse that the Verona city council tacked a balcony onto. Also saw the Castle Vecchio and walked around on it, walked around on the attached bridge, finally saw my first scooter (okay, saw a LOT of them), ate tiramisu, finished acquisition of a few souvenirs for a few folks (everybody, I think), and shuffled the terribly uncomfortable mattress I'd been sleeping on into the rollaway.
Also found Chartreuse V.E.P. for 130 Euros, which is coming home with me.
Oh, and doubled the photographs I'd taken.

A busy day. I plan on sleeping like a corpse in a wee bit.
