Verona



A city that seems to demand a byname, it has been called the City of Love (in homage to the immortal story of the impossible and tragic story of Romeo and Juliet). Its buildings and walls attest to a thousand year long history and the part it played as events unfolded and art evolved. Verona gradually reveals itself as an ineffably lovely shimmering pearl, in a setting where the landscape seems to sum up the varied forms of nature.


Juliet's House
A tall building dating perhaps to the 13th century, with a fine brick facade. Tradition has it that this was the house of the Capulets, the powerful Veronese family which Juliet belonged.
The famous balcony which plays such an important part in the story is in the inner courtyard.

Graffiti scribbled on the wall of the house by lovers from all over the world.

Congratulations Aru!
