There are a lot of romantic cities in this world, but none can compare to the romance that fills the city of Verona. Known by thousands for its Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's house), my weekend adventure to this city brought to life one of Shakespeare's greatest stories. The Casa di Giulietta was originally built in the 13th century by the family of Capello, or Capulet, as Shakespeare would say. In the beginning of the 20th century, the balcony, which is said to be the place Romeo declared his love for Juliet, was added on to the house. Every year hundreds of people come to visit this attraction. Whether they're writing love-letters to Juliet, marking their names in the entryway, or feeling the breast of the bronze Juliet statue for good luck, everyone had their taste of romance at the Casa. In this way, Verona was the biggest reminder for me of the power one story can have on a community.
