Piazza Erbe

By TrevBatWCC    
On reaching the top end of Via Giuseppe Mazzini in Verona, turning left leads you into the large Piazza Erbe, where there are lots of market stalls, though not Christmas ones. There was though, a small Nativity scene in the centre of the Piazza, and a bit higher up stands the splendid fountain, Fontana Madonna, built in 1368 by Cansignorio with marble from the ancient Roman forum and thermal baths.
It does look like it's raining or has been, especially in the lead image, but it was completely dry the paving stones and cobbles all around the city are of shiny marble, giving the impression it's wet!

Wonderful scenes Trev, everyone is wrapped up, so I assume it was a tad cold.
