Juliet’s Balcony, Verona

One of the most visited places in Verona, Italy, is Casa di Giulietta, which translates as Juliet’s House.

Visitors are spun a fiction that this is where the famous balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet took place. But rather sadly, in reality the building has nothing to do with the story. In all probability, it wasn’t even an inspiration for any part Shakespeare’s play. In fact, ‘Juliet’s’ balcony, located in the building’s courtyard, wasn’t even constructed until the 20th Century!

All that being said, I still visited it during my visit to Verona. Well… some things you just have to do, don’t you?

    That’s a real bummer about that balcony but I do feel that many will not be able to stop themselves from re-enacting that scene once they arrive there 🙂
