160826_132855_0790 The Balcony. Yes, THAT Balcony

Casa Di Giulietta, Via Cappello, Verona, Veneto, Italia

Naturally, no visit to Verona would be complete without visiting the house of Juliet. And, of course, the balcony under which Romeo made his famous declaration of love.

Except, of course, Romeo and Juliet were both fictional, and the balcony was not added until about the 18th century if I recall correctly.

And the name of the family which lived here in the Shakespearean era was at best vaguely, kinda sorta, somewhat if you turn your head and squint, similar to "Capulet".

Naturally none of this is the point; it's the sense of romance that is bound up in the story of the star-crossed lovers that draws the visitors in in great numbers each year.
