May 2004 - Verona Italy
These are the most popular tourist attractions in Verona. Juliet's house can be found at Via Cappello, 23. However, while the Capulet family did once live in Verona, it is doubtful that they ever lived in the house now designated to them. There is a statue of Juliet in the courtyard and the house has been restored in line with the famous play. Romeo's house can be found on Arche Scaligere, 4 and this is believed to be the actual house where the Montagues lived.
This is rather a tacky place to visit as people are allowed to write love notes and stick them onto the walls with chewing gum. However it was an amusing diversion on our day out in Verona.
All those words written by lovers
