In short we went to Lausanne to relax and watch the snow fall, which, I have to admit, was wonderfull to watch from inside!
Once we got to Verona, Laura called our host and he came to pick us up at the train station, which was really welcome since he had a car! He then took us into Verona to show us around a little and to point out to us some things we should visit the next day. He knew a lot about the architecture and history of the city and he gave us some useful tips about the city dos and don’ts. (For example he told us there was a 300 euro fine if you were caught sitting down and eating near the main attractions of the city. They had a special picnic area available for eating purposes.)
