Wedding on Juliet’s Balcony, Italy
Verona’s most famous balcony, where Shakespeare’s Romeo wooed his beloved Juliet is open for weddings. The city’s authorities decided to make the 12th century Casa Di Giulietta (Juliet’s house) available for wedding celebrations in 2009 with an aim of establishing the Italian city as the Capital of Love and Romance.
According to folklore, the house was once home of the Cappello family, that inspired Shakespeare’s Capulets for his play, Romeo and Juliet.
Some historians argue there is not enough evidence to prove this link but the famous balcony is one of Verona’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting over a million visitors each year.
‘Verona is known worldwide as the city of love. We have inherited this splendid reputation and we want to promote it,’ said Daniele Polato, the official who made the proposal.
The price for getting married at Juliet’s house goes from €600 for Verona residents to euro €1,000 for non-EU citizens (who are not living in the city).
