Sunset on Via Cavour


From the Palace of the Bank of Italy to the clock tower of Castelvecchio: this is only a part of Corso Cavour that stretches from Porta Borsari in a continuous line of beautiful noble palaces. Palazzo Canossa, topped with a row of statues, is probably one of the most beautiful buildings of Verona.

You are blessed to have such beautiful old buildings in Verona. Palazzo Canossa looks really impressive. What era does it date from?

The buildings are lovely, and so is the sky :)

very cool that the buildings are b/w yet the sky has color in it.
I hope this street remains as it is for eons to come!

You must have got up very early - or perhaps it's dusk - to get this lovely shot. The building you mention with the statues on top is just amazing.

It looks like a beautiful evening scenery. The Palazzo Canossa is definitely the most beautiful building in the photo.

Oh, I'd love to go down that way! I love the strong, cold contrast of the grey buildings against the softly lit sky.
