Verona is famed for being the home to the tragic lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Juliet’s home, Casa di Giulietta, sees thousands of visitors a year and there are multiple traditions (from writing letters to Juliet to rubbing the right breast on her statue) for those wishing to channel the spirit of Juliet in hopes of receiving her blessings to find love.
Many people travel to Verona solely in search of Juliet’s home, and her love blessings, myself included. Casa di Giulietta was on the top of my “must-do” list for Verona and almost immediately after starting my walk to her home from my Air B&B, I began to fall in love with Verona.
When they refer to Verona as the ‘city of love’, one jumps to the assumption that the title is tied to Romeo and Juliet. After getting lost in Verona, I fell in love with the ‘city of love’ and the term had a whole new meaning! I’m sure that my photos will inspire you to add Verona onto your bucket list, follow along below!
Verona is only about an hour and fifteen minutes from Venice and the architecture is reflective of the close-proximity to the floating city. The Venetian influences can be seen throughout the city.
A quintessential Italian fruit and vegetable stand.
Just an average home façade. NBD.
Speaking of home facades, can I move in?
The streets of Verona are not only quaint but they’re also quiet. Perfect for exploring and getting lost.
The homes and businesses along the banks of the Adige River are picture perfect. The vines and moss growing along the river banks just add to the charm.
Who wouldn’t want to live here, seriously? * insert heart eye emoji *
The epitome of Italy.
#PinkHour views over the entire city from the viewpoint at Piazzale Castel San Pietro.
The sunset views and hues from the Piazzale Castel San Pietro were picture perfect.
The #PinkHour over the city got pinker and pinker as the sun faded away.
Charming street corners.
Although gross, in my personal opinion, those hopeful for love leave behind gum and love locks at the home of Juliet.
Just when you think it can’t get any cuter you stumble upon a nook like this one.
I couldn’t get enough of the picturesque corners, especially during #PinkHour.
You can even find beautiful Verona views and hues when you peek through cracks in the brick.
And if all the beauty of the city of Verona didn’t convince you to visit, let me just end this on a “fresh strawberries covered in warm melted milk chocolate topped with fresh whipped cream” note.
