X is for XOXO ( hugs and kisses )

Casa di Giulietta Verona

Juliet’s house (Casa di Giulietta) is one of the main attractions of Verona with the most famous balcony in the world. Every day crowds of people make their way through the narrow archway into the courtyard to admire and photograph the famous balcony. Couples of all ages swear eternal fidelity here in memory of Shakespeare’s play “Romeo and Juliet”.


Juliet's Balcony.


Juliet's Wall of Love
Many people write their names and the names of their beloved ones on the walls of the entrance, known as Juliet's wall. Many believe that writing on that place will make their love everlasting. After a restoration and cleaning of the building, it was intended that further writing should be on replaceable panels or white sheets placed outside the wall. Writing love-struck graffiti on the walls of the courtyard and the tunnel that leads into it will be banned, apart from on specially-provided, removable panels. Anyone caught breaking the new rules, which will be enforced by local police, will risk a fine of up to 500 euros!
