Romeo and Juliet Balcony Hosts First Wedding

Back in March, I told you about a balcony in Verona that's supposedly the 14th-century Casa di Giulietta (home of Juliet of Romeo and Juliet fame) in Verona, Italy. While evidence confirming the home's identity is sketchy at best, romantic brides and grooms can live the fantasy —hopefully without the tragedy of the Shakespeare play — for a fee of 1,000 euros. And if you're non-European, you'll pay an additional 300 euros for the opportunity. This payment ensures your rental of the house (and balcony), but the ceremony must be performed inside the home.

The first couple to take advantage of the historic home and balcony tied the knot in romantic fashion today. Hellas Verona footballer Luca Ceccarelli and his wife Irene Lanforti took their vows at Juliet's home and then posed on the balcony for pictures.

Interested in getting married at Juliet's home? You can contact the Verona Tourist Center for all the details.

Weird, I read links that stated they couldn't prove feuding families, or tragic lovers.An actual link for the location states Capellos lived in the house, not Capulets. :shrug:

I've been there a couple of years ago and, aside the romeo&giulietta myth, it's a beautiful location for a wedding.

Like many of Shakespeare's plays, Romeo and Juliet is based on a true story. In 1303, in Verona, real lovers both died for each other. Additionally, both the Capulet and Montague families existed in Verona at this time.

Wow, I just looked some stuff up on this location. Most people said it wasn't worth the money and it was disgusting and dirty. Cupping the breast of the bronze "juliet" for luck, just topped it off for me! :rotfl:

I don't think I would want to be married on the balcony from Romeo and Juliet. And especially if its a myth, which makes sense, because its fiction, right?
