Verona Italy

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


  1. How cool, I have seen this place on TV before. It is romantic that people were leaving notes on the walls. Great post and photos, thanks for sharing! Happy Sunday!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the Irish authors, I really for some reason didn't get Tana French, my niece (my reading partner) loves her. I shall try the remainder. I'm dying to go to Italy, I have a friend or two there and would love to visit this spot. It's the plane ride I'm not looking forward to. Thank you so much for the info.
