Verona is my new favorite city! Steve granted my Valentine’s request and whisked me away to fair Verona, Italy, of Romeo and Juliet fame. The tale of Romeo and Juliet predates the Shakespearean play, but he certainly did make this beautiful city famous for centuries to come. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and it’s safe to say this is the most romantic trip we’ve ever taken, so I hope this post encourages you to start planning your trip soon!
Where to Stay
La Corte di Giulietta Exclusive Suites
This is one of the best accommodation decisions I’ve ever made–ever. It was a little nuts during opening hours at the Casa di Giulietta (House of Juliet), but the opportunity to have the courtyard to ourselves for a few hours every day was priceless! I mean, we had a key to the gate!
Aside from the total movie moment of looking out our window at Juliet’s balcony (way better than the view from her balcony!), it was also incredibly romantic. There are only three suites in this accommodation, two of which have a view of the balcony. The rooms are very private, and the suites are beautifully decorated. The owner and manager both did such a wonderful job of making the whole experience special for us, which made for a very romantic getaway!
