Citizens desire to keep the story of Romeo and Juliet as part of their city has led to the creation of a home for Juliet and they have placed the home at n.27 Via Cappello. But that is not the Juliet home: the coat of arms carved on the keystone of the courtyard arch indicates that the Dal Cappello family were the original owners. In the last century it was used as a hostelry for visitors. The small marble balcony located in the courtyard recalls the famous scene where Romeo climbs up to the balcony as Shakespeare writes 'with love’s eight wings did I o’verperch these walls,' to be with Juliet.

Every tourist's guide doing a city tour will tell you: 'It is difficult to understand why the city of Verona has not attempted to restore the home of Romeo'. But it is not the Romeo home, it is false! The actual home is noted as belonging to Cognolo Nogarolo, a significant citizen belonging to a powerful and great culture's family. Isotta Nogarolo, despite being a women, becames a famous writer and philosopher of the time. Personally, I descend in my mother-line from Sir Andrea da Nogarolo (councillor and judge in 1584). But I don't know if there is any connection with the medieval family of Verona, maybe is a simple coincidence of names.

Unique Suggestions: ...but the bed looked real enough to me. I liked the way is was built up too, neat.

In the courtyard of Juliet it seems the in thing is to write graffiti love letters on the walls - some were even inscribed in chewing gum - ugh!!

Arena! Inside is quite new with all that new stone bricks and it's hard to imagine how it looks like in ancient time.
