I’m not going to say much about the Opera except that it was beautiful. Verona is a ridiculously cute city that we plan on visiting again.

We had a great time at the Opera. We’re starting to feel like super fancy people. I mean who goes to the Opera in Sydney AND Verona? While there were a few tourists at the show, most of the audience seemed to be locals. It was nice to take part in a not-so-touristy activity. We never go to the Opera at home but if I lived here, I’d get season tickets. Our tickets were are about 27 Euros a piece. Not too shabby.
We try to go to local events when we travel. If we’re traveling in the States, I always check to see if there is a baseball or basketball game we can attend. It seems like when we are abroad we try for more artsy type events. I wish we had been able to get tickets to an Aussie Rules match when we were there last summer. Oh well…
Today we’re trying to come up with indoor activities since a storm is coming. Tomorrow we’re off to Cinque Terre and Genoa for a few days.
