A mandatory visit to Casa di Giulietta Verona

Out of the Top 3 sights to see in Verona, Casa di Giulietta is definitely among them. This renaissance building of the 14th century is nowadays a pilgrimage site for everyone enthusiastic about the novel Romeo & Juliet, maybe even for the ones unhappy in Love, or just for all tourists and visitors to Verona. To me, it really has been a mandatory visit to Casa di Giulietta Verona. It’s just the thing to see in the romantic city.
But the house is so much more than just a tourist attraction, even though “the real Juliet” never lived in there, nor William Shakespeare has any close connections to the building. But, you can not only visit the courtyard, which is typically very crowded, you can also visit the inside of the house. The four-story building displays ancient memorabilia, like a historic bed or examples of how males and females dressed back then, you will also gain access to the famous balcony on the first floor. “Juliet’s balcony” is not original, as the house is already more than 500 years old, as it was only installed in the past century.
Besides standing on the balcony and waving to the crowds, another popular activity at Casa di Giulietta Verona is to rub the breast of the bronze statue of Juliet. It is said to bring fortune to those unlucky in love. Tourists also leave “letters to Juliet” on the wall next to the Juliet statue. Watch my video below to get a glimpse of what to expect from a visit to Casa di Giulietta Verona.

    It’s interesting that this place is used to connect to Juliet from Romeo and Juliet. It looks like it was a wonderful experience though. I’d love to visit there myself.

  2. It is amazing how detailed the architecture and insides are. I feel like today’s architecture is no where close to our past.

  3. I have not heard of this before, so thanks for sharing this. Seems a very interesting place.

  7. wow what a sight to see! Definitely adding this on my bucket list

  8. Impressive house. If the real Juliette never lived there, how did it become her balcony? Or did I miss read this.

  9. I love a crash course about the history of the place. If these dresses and furnitures could talk I wonder what intresting stories they would say of the past.

  10. Wow, 500 years old. That’s 5-6 generations past us, it’s cool to be able to see all these dresses and furniture that remind us how people live and dress in the past, they looked regal.
