City of Love

 Here you will see the balcony where Juliet stood while Romeo declared his love.

Strolling through the city we could cherish many fascinating and impressive monuments and “palazzi”, that narrate its long history of power and wealth, to land to our next stop, Juliet’s House.

Juliet's House Museum, one of the most famous places in the city of Verona and an absolute point of reference for lovers from all over the world, is located in a medieval palace in Verona where the Dal Cappello family probably resided since the 13th century. which gives its name to the street and whose emblem is carved in a relief in the keystone of the internal arch of the building's courtyard. The building, located in the delightful Via Cappello, not far from the central Piazza Erbe, has been the subject of numerous restoration and renovation interventions over the centuries, passing through the hands of various owners. In the meantime, the legend and popular belief that identifies it as the birthplace of Juliet Capulet, protagonist, together with the beloved Romeo Montague, of the famous Shakespearean tragedy, grew, and the Municipality of Verona in 1907 deemed it appropriate to acquire at least part of the entire medieval complex. The famous balcony is the result of the assembly of 14th century marble remains which, until 1920, lay in the Castelvecchio Museum as stones to be re-used, according to the architectural fashion of the time. The medieval residence, picturesquely restored by Antonio Avena at the beginning of the 20th century, has a beautiful internal facade in exposed brick, a Gothic style portal, trefoil windows, a balustrade that connects the various parts of the house from the outside and, of course, the famous balcony. In the courtyard there is the bronze statue of Juliet, by Nereo Costantini. In Verona there actually existed two families named Montecchi and Capuleti (or, to be precise, Cappelletti) and they are also mentioned by Dante in the VI Canto of Purgatory in the Divine Comedy. Juliet's House is among the most visited places in Verona. The Capulet Hall, inside the structure, is also able to host wedding ceremonies.
