Romeo & Juliet

Verona is known as the town where "Romeo & Juliet" lived.

In the early 1970s, a clever tour guide promoted this courtyard as the home of Juliet and attracted hordes of tourists. The house is part of a museum. Pay €6 to go inside and then stand on the balcony.

Enter the courtyard by passing under an archway with a cap on it, symbolizing the Capulets.

There is a statue of Juliet in the courtyard. Rub her breasts to help you find a lover.

On the wall are letters to Juliet, some stuck on with gum. 

There is also a red mailbox, where you can send a letter to Juliet. There is a "Juliet Club" that reviews the letters and awards a free trip to Verona to the sweetest letter they receive.
