Verona is characterized by the quiet current of the Adige River (the second biggest in Italy, after Po river), which crosses the city, forming an S, with a suggestive network of bridges.
I took this photo on a bit of the so called "lungadige" (along the Adige) beyond Via Sottoriva, actually one of my favourite places in town. It reminds me of l'Ile de St. Louise in Paris!
There is a row of ancient buildings, now completely restored, with lovely balconies facing the river and with a privileged view of the hill dominated by the Castel San Pietro.
I often walk by the river where I like to stop and take a long look at it, like this woman in the photo: sometimes it looks so still you can see the rocks. I like to see the ducks and other birds floating quietly. When it rains more the river gets bigger and stronger. It washes away quickly and can be even threatening. About ten years ago I saw it almost running out of the banks!
