I went to Verona in 2009 for a one-day vacation. It was late March. Verona is the city of William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”. The city is also homes to Chesini bikes.
It is one of the most beautiful and historic cities of Italy. With approximately 265,000 inhabitants, it is the second largest city municipality in the Veneto region and the third of northeast Italy.
Verona is one of the main tourist destinations in northern Italy. It has several annual fairs, shows, and operas, such as the lyrical season in the Arena, the ancient amphitheater built by the Romans. Because of its urban structure and architecture, Verona has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO.
Verona is also the birthplace of famous cyclist Damiano Cunego and young star Elia Viviani.
I was searching for a bicycle shop in Verona. Somebody told me that there’s a bicycle shop near Ponte Navi. I walked there. The name of the shop was Chesini.
Once upon a time, Chesini was a famous frame builder. These world championships were won with Chesini frames.
