Casa di Giulietta — Verona, Italy
Happy Valentines Day, Divas!!
In our last Devotional Diva post, I shared most of our trip to Vicenza and Verona, Italy…
LEAVING OUT THE MOST ROMANTIC (YET FICTIONAL) PART!
I saved Casa di Giulietta in Verona for a special Valentines Day post!
We had to do it. I love Romeo & Juliet. It’s supposed to be where she lived. There is a statue of Juliet, there is her infamous balcony and a small museum. (What I really want to know is where is the pool that Leonardo DiCaprio falls into in the movie version???)
Also — there’s a tomb not far from here. We didn’t make it over there.
While the story is based on two rival families (or so I’ve heard), Casa di Giulietta wasn’t actually where Juliet lived. Juliet wasn’t a real person.
So it’s kind of a silly touristy thing.
But let’s live a little. Let’s be romantic! It’s Verona!
