Verona, Italy: Romeo and Juliet?

On the Ponte Pieta, looking towards the lovely villas in the hills north of Verona.  No sign of Romeo or Juliet.

After a hectic bus experience, we reached the Basilica San Zeno Maggiore, who was the patron saint of Verona.  It offers quite the vista.  The saint himself resides in the crypt underneath the church.  Still no Romeo and Juliet, but Vicenzo and Valeria (real people!) were getting married in the church later that afternoon.  We even got to hear the string quartet/organist practicing, and it was food for my ears.
