Juliet’s House (Casa di Giulietta) Tours

William Shakespeare put Verona on the map for the English-speaking world, setting his tale of the star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet in this northern Italian city. The Bard’s timeless story has inspired a steady flow of romantics to visit Juliet’s House, or Casa di Giulietta, as Verona’s 13th-century palazzo of the Dal Cappello family is now known. Though Romeo and Juliet were almost certainly figments of Shakespeare’s imagination and the famous balcony where Juliet is said to have gazed down at Romeo was added centuries after the love story was written, the romance of Juliet’s House transcends fact or fiction.
 
The Basics
Juliet’s House is among the most popular attractions in the city of Verona, along with Piazza delle Erbe and the Arena di Verona. It’s a common stop on Verona walking tours and is the highlight on private and group themed “Romeo and Juliet” tours. The site includes a small museum with a collection of paintings, prints, and ceramics, as well as Juliet’s balcony overlooking the courtyard, home to a bronze statue of Juliet dating from 2014—a replica of the original from 1969 that now stands in the museum’s atrium.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Juliet’s house is the perfect romantic stop for everyone from love-struck teens to couples celebrating their honeymoon.
  • Prepare love notes to leave at the house, a long-standing tradition for visitors.
  • Haven’t found your true love yet? Pause in the courtyard to rub the right breast of Juliet’s statue for good luck.
  • For a truly romantic day, you can also walk by Romeo’s House nearby, which once belonged to the Montecchi family though was probably never home to Shakespeare’s hero.
 
How to Get There
Juliet’s House is located on Via Cappello in Verona’s historic center, a relatively compact area that can be visited on a walking tour, by Segway with a local guide, or as part of a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Verona makes an easy day trip from Venice, Milan, and Lake Garda by bus, train, or car.
 
When to Get There
A popular destination year-round, Juliet’s House is particularly crowded around Valentine’s Day. Most tourists visit during the summer months, when the weather is conducive to lingering on the balcony and in the courtyard.
 
The Juliet Club
About 50,000 letters addressed to Juliet arrive each year in Verona, written by lovelorn from around the globe who are seeking advice from Shakespeare’s romantic heroine. Juliet Club volunteers, known as the “secretaries of Juliet,” take turns responding to these letters, keeping alive the magic and romance of one of the most powerful love stories in history.
