When it comes to romance, Italy is probably the country most associated with passionate lovers, breathtaking scenery, and movie-moment experiences like riding in gondola in Venice or clinging to your special someone on a Vespa with the wind in your hair.
Each city in Italy has worthy claims to being the most romantic, but only one can claim the true story of Romeo and Juliet- and that’s pretty hard to beat!
In the beautiful city of Verona, you can gaze upon Juliet’s supposed balcony and visit Romeo’s house. Historians aren’t sure if Romeo and Juliet really existed, but we do know that their families existed. The Montagues and Capulets were aristocratic families in Verona, and Shakespeare based his famous story on events that played out here in the City of Love.
Andiamo, let’s go wander Verona together!
