“Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…”
Obsessed with William Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” like I once was with Leo and Claire? Or are you dying to realize the beginning scenes of “Letters to Juliet” that inspired Amanda Seyfried’s character to set foot in helping others find their once lost love? If Yes, then Verona is your next destination to fall in love with.
Verona Arena and Centro Storico: On your way to the famous Juliet balcony, you’ll see the Verona Arena and also walk through the shopping streets of Centro Storico. Look down at the floor you’re walking on and you’ll see beautiful marble!
Casa di Giulietta: The main attraction! You can pay to profess your love on Juliet’s balcony, or simply pine away from below. There, stands a bronze statue of Juliet surrounded by brick walls with love locks and messages written everywhere by adorers from around the world.
Piazza dell Erbe and Palazzo Della Ragione: Visit this ancient square with food and souvenir stalls, leading to the pink marble staircase of the Palazzo Della Ragione.
After visiting the main sites, we headed to Milan to our hotel, where we’d spend Day 4 and 5.
