Photographer's Note

As you may have guessed from my title today this is supposed to be the balcony that Juliet was standing on when calling Romeo's name.

"The tragic story of Romeo and Juliet, two young lovers from rival families, was written by Luigi da Portos of Vicenza in the 1520's. It has inspired countless dramas, films and ballets.

At the Casa di Giulietta, (Juliet's house), No. 23 Via Cappello, Romeo is said to have climbed to Juliet's balcony; in reality this is a restored 13th century inn."
Yet crowds throng to see the simple facade, and stand on the small marble balcony.

Two more scenes in the w/s.
Needless to say, when we were there, there were throngs of people in the small courtyard that is in front of the balcony.

Thanks for looking.
