Love is in the streets
 Chosen for its magical scenarios to accompany the novel love story of Romeo and Juliet, Verona has been the city of eternal love since Shakespeare’s most acclaimed work of art. Symbol of one of the most romantic tales in the world, among these streets a young star-crossed love was born to be later strongly opposed and pulled apart by the rivalry of two powerful local families.

Juliet’s House
 In Via Cappello, in-love travellers will find the Shakespearian heroine’s mansion, in particular the legendary balcony featured in the famous scene in which Romeo, hidden under his beloved’s balcony, hears her speak alone and discovers that she reciprocates his feelings. The stone-made walls are covered with love messages and to protect the secrecy of letters hidden in small holes among the stones. Especially if you are looking for a big sign to declare your love, legend says to caress Juliet’s bronze statue as an omen of good fortune.
