Juliet's Balcony in Verona

One cannot come to Verona without visiting the home of Juliet (Guilietta). Here you see the famous balcony.

And here, you see the statue of Juliet. It is good luck to touch one breast and make a wish about 'love'.

This is the entrance to her courtyard. People leave love notes, letters, etc., on the wall, and on the gate as you can see below.

Locks are seen all over Verona, with names of couples written on them.

The following are costumes from the original movie of Romeo and Juliet

Before becoming a librarian for the last 4 years before we moved here, I taught English for 8 years. Quite a few of those years were spent teaching the 9th grade. That means I taught Romeo and Juliet over and over and over again quite a few years. You know, it was never my favorite before teaching it and I can honestly say it is DEFINITELY not my favorite after teaching it umpteen times!

I am sure that Verona is beautiful, though!

Yes, Verona is lovely. It 'is' a city of love, and you see it every where.
