Club di Giulietta – Verona Italy

Verona, Italy is one of my favorite Italian cities to see. It is a good size city of about 260,000 inhabitants. Verona is located between Milan and Venice. It connects to these two cities by a good autostrada. It straddles the Adige river. It is a city of romance and love since Shakespeare based three of his plays here:

  1. Romeo & Juliet
  2. The Two Gentleman of Verona
  3. The Taming of the Shrew

Verona

If you have seen the 2010 movie Letters to Juliet, you know it takes place in Verona. Letters from lost lovers are left on a wall for Juliet to to answer. Who really answers these letters? It is the Club di Giulietta.

Of course the story of Romeo & Juliet is fictional  but many believe Shakespeare was inspired to write this play in Verona. He may have seen the now famous Balcony of Juliet and got the idea. What ever the truth is, Verona has capitalized on this tragic love story. There is a statue of Juliet with bare breasts that is suppose to give you good luck in love if you touch them. So many tourists do this, that her breasts are wearing down. There is also a balcony next to the statue which is supposed to be where Romeo told Juliet he loved her.

You can feel romance & love in this town. It is similar to other Italian cities with its restaurants, gelato stores, bars, museums, churches and views. Driving in the old section is restricted. Get a hotel room and re-live your love. Enjoy Italy and Verona.
