Juliet’s Balcony in Verona, Italy

From the Arena di Verona, a 10 minute walk takes you towards Juliet’s famous balcony, located in a courtyard on Via Cappello. The house dates to the 1300s. It’s supposedly the place that inspired Shakespeare to write his tragic love story that has become so iconic in modern day romantic culture. The entryway has an arched ceiling and is covered in love-note graffiti. Visitors have even stuck paper notes to the walls in some places. A gated door holds hundreds of pink locks, becoming a mini version of the Pont des Arts in Paris.
