'Casa di Giulietta' in Verona

  • Thousands of tourists flock to this 14th century house in Verona every year, to see the balcony that supposedly belonged to the Capulets of Shakespeare’s play.
  • Now, as of last summer, couples can get married on Juliet’s famous balcony, presumably hoping for a happier ending than that of the star-crossed lovers.
  • The play has given rise to the name of this particular style of balcony, variously spelt Juliet or Juliette balcony.
