Juliet's House

Verona, Italy

Juliet Capulet is the female protagonist and one of two title characters in William Shakespeare's romantic love tragedy Romeo and Juliet. The so-called Juliet's House features the balcony where Romeo promised his beloved Juliet eternal love in Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. The building, dating back to the 13th and renovated in the last century.

Young couples are still very moved by the right of this house and unmarried people touch Juliet’s statue (a kind of good-luck ritual) in the hope of finding the love of their life. How many hopes and desires has this court-yard witnessed over the ages.

The interior of the house can be visited and you can stand on Juliet’s balcony and re-live the “ high-light” of the earthly life, as well as admire the furniture and the beautiful velvet costumes worn by the actors in the Metro Goldwyn Meyer’s colossal “ Romeo and Juliet”.

Absolutely incredible. So much better than I thought. Security did a great job managing the queue so it wasn't busy in the courtyard. The line was long from initial thought, but 400m on the street took around 10-15 minutes to enter. Definitely worth a visit even if you're in Verona for just a few hours

Nice place for a quick stop and picture. Standing in front of the balcony is free. Going up and visiting the museum will require a fee. NOTE that one person needs to go up alone first so that another one can take a picture downstairs. You can't go up and down. After that the museum is really not worth it, almost nothing interesting to see and super small. You will be done in 5 minutes. To conclude, only wort visiting for the balcony picture.

Interesting sightseeing place for people who love romance. However, the wait to take a picture from the inside part of a balcony doesn't make a sense for me. It would be great to have a picture taken from the outside when you together stay in the balcony. But it's impossible because of the long lasting wait line and many people standing inside the yard. For us it was nice and cute to say we were there, but isn't worth waiting.

The Place is very nice. I strongly suggest to purchase your ticket online, because the queue is relevant. If you buy your ticket online, just skip the queue and ask for instructions to the guys working there at the entrance: there is no indication of this, so follow their instructions to skip the queue. It's a bit uncomfortable because the other persons in the queue will not understand what's happening, looking at you like you want to cheat... :) They should provide 2 different queues/entrances.

This was an easy find. The small courtyard hosts tons of people every moment. It was an interesting experience with camera flashes and phones taking shots at every angle. You are likely to either appear in people's shots unknowingly or they photobombed you. If you've been there, someone definitely has images of you in their photos or videos. The marks left behind by visitors over the years give you a sense of the emotions her story evoke and the desire of visitors to share some of their own love stories or cement their love there, altogether.

Mingarry Castle Ruins

Mingarry Castle was considered a strategically important site in terms of communication with overseas areas and as an entranceway to the Sound of Mull. Originally built in the 13th century for the Clan MacDonald of Ardnamurchan, the castle has had many different occupants. King James IV of Scotland used it as a stronghold for fighting off Clan Donald in the late 15th century. In 1515 the castle was besieged by the Clan MacDonald of Lochalsh and again two years later when they finally took the castle.

In 1588 the chief of the Clan MacLean of Duart resided there after capturing the chief of the Clan MacIan of Ardnamurchan. In 1588, one of the ships of the Spanish Armada, named the San Juan de Sicilia, landed on Mull and MacLean of Duart used troops from the ship to aid him in his warring against the MacDonalds of Clanranald and the MacIans of Ardnamurchan.
