"Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean."
- Romeo and Juliet (1.1), William Shakespeare.
It's easy to imagine why Verona was chosen to set the scene for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Verona is a very romantic city, with plenty of beauty for an urban explorer. The scene in this print can be seen from Castel San Pietro, atop the ruins of an ancient Roman theatre. The streets of Verona slowly light up with their tungsten-yellow lamps when dusk arrives.
