Juliet's House & Balcony
Normal Entry Price:
Explore the interiors and the history of Romeo and Juliet in this unique house museum and get relaxed on the balcony of the lovers.
Juliet's house is a medieval building dating back to the thirteenth century. It was long owned by the Cappello family, whose coat of arms is carved on entrance arch of the courtyard. Over the years the surnames Cappello and Capuleti were identified, thus creating the common idea that this was the home of Juliet, the protagonist of Shakespeare's tragedy.
There are actually two families named Montecchi and Capuleti (the exact name is however Cappelletti): we can prove their presence because Dante wrote about these families during his stay in Verona.
Today in the courtyard of the house you can admire the bronze statue of Juliet by the sculptor Nereo Constantine. The building has, in addition to the famous balcony, an external brick facade, a Gothic portal and a balustrade that connects the various bodies of the house from the outside.
