As I mentioned in my previous post “Five hours in Verona – What can you do?” our main purpose of visiting Verona was to see the famous Juliet’s house or as the Italian’s call it “Casa di Giulietta”. Located in Via Cappello, 23 this is one of the most visited attractions in Verona. With all the hype, is it actually worth the visit?
It’s Juliet’s house!!! Need I say more? For those Shakespearian lovers out there this is supposed to be where Juliet lived, hence the name Juliet’s house. Even though we all know its fiction most of us dreamed of being in the place to replace the fiction with a sense of reality. For those deciding to visit that reason alone justifies the travel to Verona.
Well if you want to see the inside of the house it will cost you 6 Euros if not its completely free. We did not have time to go inside so we battled the throng of teenagers and other tourists just like us to soak in the beauty. The courtyard itself has plenty to see. So it’s really a matter of what you came to see.
Once you battle your way in past the signed walls, into the courtyard this is what you will notice:
Since we did not go inside I am unable to comment on the interior of the house. From what we saw, felt and experienced, Juliet’s house is a must visit form the romantic souls out there. Even if you are not romantic its a beautiful piece of Venetian architecture.
I hope I have provided those wondering and battling with the question of a visit here. Do take a trip to Juliet’s house when you are in Verona. It is always wonderful to be part of something so beautiful and historical even in a fictional sense.
Until next time…
