“There is no world for me outside the walls of Verona, except purgatory, torture, and hell itself. So to be banished from Verona is like being banished from the world, and being banished from the world is death.” from Romeo and Juliet, Act III Scene III by W. Shakespeare
Inextricably tied to the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, Verona is the eternal city of love. It sets the scene for the most romantic stage - the lovers’ terrace at Juliet’s house. Verona is also where Juliet is buried: her tomb lies nestled within the walls of the convent of San Francesco al Corso, the House of Montague. Every corner of every street tells the story of these two legendary lovers.
A traditional custom for marrying in Verona is to arrive beneath Juliet’s balcony in a horse-drawn carriage and recite the same promise of eternal love of the two young lovers. Juliet’s house has become one of the great landmarks of Verona, along with the Roman amphitheater - and every Monday morning weddings are performed there.
Verona is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is exceptionally rich in art, culture and history making it the perfect setting for an unforgettable wedding.
