I love window shopping! There are so many stores here in Milan that I enjoy walking past to see their window displays. They usually change them every day or so, too! They also put little signs next to each mannequin telling you the price of each item displayed.
Look at this red gown in a sea of white wedding dresses at Atelier Emé:
James in front of one of the windows at Stefanel - I love all of the Christmas ornament balls!
I love this one shoulder dress at Kocca:
We are really enjoying Milan, Italy! Here are some highlights of our visit so far!
James was due for a groom while we were in Milan so we took him to Dog Model. Luciana has lots of Barboni (Poodles) on her website so we knew she would be perfect for James! On the way to the groomer we met another Poodle owner and she gets her white Standard Poodle groomed at Dog Model, too. The grooming shop isn't far from the Brera district so we were able to walk around and shop while James was groomed.
Here are a few of our favorite photos from our stay in Verona, Italy!
You know you are in Italy when the grocery store has an amazing selection of fresh pasta:
The churches and cathedrals in Europe are just so amazing. One day, I stopped in to see Sant'Anastasia:
Our apartment had an espresso maker so we enjoyed our "tiny coffees" every morning:
One night, on our way to dinner, we decided fries would be a great appetizer. So we stopped at Queen's Chips:
We were walking around Verona, Italy one night and decided we should go check out Juliet's Balcony - Casa di Giulietta.
Three of Shakespeare's plays are set in Verona: Romeo and Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and The Taming of the Shrew. It is unknown if Shakespeare ever visited Verona or Italy at all, but his plays have lured many visitors to Verona and surrounding cities.
In addition to the balcony, there is a bronze statue of Juliet. The metal on her right breast is worn bare due
It is funny how we didn't really have a plan on what other cities we wanted to visit near Vienna. But somehow the right places found their way onto our calendar! Verona, Italy is one of those cities. Chris and I looked up Verona online and we decided it would be a perfect fit for our first Italian city to visit.
We really lucked out when we found an apartment right next to the Castelvecchio Bridge! The bridge, most likely built in 1354-1356, granted Cangrande II della Scala a safe escape
