The house in Verona known as Juliet's house was owned by the family dell Capello, a name not too far from Capulet, right? The house dates from the 13th century and the family coat of arms can still be seen on the wall. A slight problem is the balcony itself, which overlooks the courtyard – it was added in the 20th century. But that's of no matter to the hundreds of girls who every year step out onto it and gaze below seeking their Romeo among the milling tourists.
Inside the house is a small museum and in the courtyard is a bronze sculpture of Juliet – people rub her right breast for luck. But the ultimate in romantic gesturing is the many love notes stuck on the walls and doors in the entrance to the courtyard. Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Review by Janet W, February 2013
Walking through the archway into this little paradise garden then into the house with many locks and noted to seal the love of many romantiques in hope their true love will last till eternity. A must while in Verona. If only a minute on the balcony where Juliette profused her love to her Romeo. It was while worth the visit.
