Postcards from Juliet

On my recent trip to Verona, one of the must see sights was Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's House). Despite being a somewhat token tribute to a fictional story, there's no way you could come to this fair city and miss gazing up at that famous balcony. Perhaps you'd also leave your mark on the walls, along with the many lovelorn and loved up, who have visited before you.

Have you ever been to Juliet's house?

Shakespeare - the scene we all know and love
Just a few of the many locks left by lovers

Messages from the many who feel the need to leave their mark
 Juliet may never have stood here in truth, but there's no doubt that this famous balcony looks the part
