The balcony where Romeo wooed Juliet, could there be a more romantic wedding setting? The Casa Di Guilietta (house of Juliet) is said to have been the setting for Shakespeare’s tragic love story, Romeo and Juliet, and this is what the authorities in Verona are hoping will lure romantic couples to the city to get married. It’s already one of Verona’s most popular tourist destinations, but obviously the authorities have realised how much extra revenue can be made by hiring it out as a wedding venue, about £930* in fact. Many of the newspapers are saying this is quite expensive for a wedding ceremony, and ok it’s not cheap, but neither is a wedding ceremony in the UK unless you are marrying in a register office. Most venues will charge at least £200 to £300 for the room hire in a hotel or country house and then you will need to pay the fees for the actual ceremony to the officiant. If you are romantic enough the want to marry at the balcony of the ‘star-cross’d lovers’, then you’re romantic enough to pay the price!
