Almost all of us have heard of the infamous ‘star crossed lovers’ Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. But have you ever had the chance to see a part of this love story in real life? Well, I was lucky enough to see just that. If you ever travel to Verona in Italy, where love is definitely in the air, one place you should not miss is Juliet’s balcony. It’s a very popular attraction amongst both tourists and locals alike. You can go up to the exact balcony where Juliet was, and where Romeo came to see her. It’s an amazing experience to read Shakespeare’s story of Romeo and Juliet, and visit that exact place at present time. It sure will be a ‘moment’ you take with you, like I did. What’s more is, for all those star crossed lovers out there who wants to be Romeo and Juliet (literally), you can do so by having your wedding at Juliet’s Balcony in Verona. It will definitely be a romantic wedding.
