    Fun Photo Op
    This house may have a very loose connection to the Romeo and Juliet story. It was still a fun photo opportunity to get a photo with a statue of Juliet in the courtyard and a photo of the balcony. It is believed that touching her breast would bring good luck. Entry to the courtyard was free. There is a fee to enter the house which is a museum and to go onto the balcony. I didn’t go inside. It was crowded in the courtyard with no line-ups at 10:30 in the morning but when I left, a line was forming to enter the courtyard.

    You just have to go if you come to Verona
    Outside is a very crowded courtyard. Looking up, you can see the balcony from the Romeo and Juliette story. Take selfish and get the obligatory shot. Then there is a bronze statue of Juliette that they say is good luck if you touch the statue's breast. I found that part a bit degrading and trashy. You shouldbhave seen the shenanigans the crowd (even the women) were getting up to with that part. Many were quite lewd. The crowd was so thick around the statue that you could not even get a good look at it. And this was on a Monday with it softly raining. I can't imagine what it would be like on a sunny weekend afternoon! You can purchase tickets to enter Juliette's house but we didn't think it was worth it.

    Why not?
    I mean...you are in Verona! . We went at the peak of summer. The line was not bad and it moved quickly. We did not get the Verona Pass (but wished we had) so we did not go up into the building and balcony. However, seeing it from below is special. My family of seven (including three adult children and two young children) all enjoyed this stop as it helped us visualize the story and had all of our imaginations working in overdrive. I mean, what if? Of course we did it. It was free. And, we loved it!

    Underwhelming but good to do I suppose if you are in the area.... Don't make a special trip.
    I was in italy, staying in the mountains and decided to visit a friend in verona as we were only 2 hours away. I'm glad my main purpose for visiting verona was to see her and not just the love story of Romeo and Juliet!! The queue was long but fast so you only wait about 5-10 mins to get in. When you enter it is just a little courtyard with lots of shops selling tat that are geared at tourists. The balcony is just a balcony. There is a statue which, if you cup her right breast gives you luck when wishing for marriage. Naturally (when in Rome or, Verona in this case!) we did it, for a giggle. There is a cute section where people chain love heart padlocks enscribing their names. The only issue is.... This entire this is nonsense!! I'm a bit romantic, but let's face it, Shakespeare never visited italy, and the story of Romeo and Juliet is made up. So you realise when standing there, that you are simply looking at a balcony, that some random person picked years ago, in all of italy/europe/the world, to exploit, and it could be any old balcony anywhere else. There isn't actually anything significant here. I say this with humour, I am not in the slightest bit grumpy and am actually quite a 'glass half full' personality. It did make me chuckle, but if I can spare people a few quid on an unnecessary trip, then I'll be honest about it. If you are in the area, it is worth doing and a lovely thing. But please do not make a special trip.

    Tourist trap
    This really is a manufactured tourist trap, Juliet’s balcony not real built for tourist to a Shakespeare storyline!!! Visually looks ok and maybe nice for a photo op that’s it. I wouldn’t say it’s a must do or see thing to do in Verona.

    Makes English Literature teachers VERY HAPPY!
    Very cool to visit the house of Juliet. SO GLAD that I bought my ticket ahead of time with the actual museum website for 9 am. It does get hot in the house. 2 floors were accessible, but no guide books to be bought in English. LOVED seeing the costumes from the Zeffirelli version and bed. Check out the shop next to the house which has a view of the balcony and courtyard. Very cool!!

    A must when in Verona
    Signage guides you to this venue and there was a short queue to get in when we visited. Once in the small courtyard you can pay to go up into the gallery and take pictures. Not sure of fee although we decided not to as people were taking a while up there making the most of it. There is a shop and a statue which you can touch for luck.

    Small but worth a visit.
    Romeo and Juliet's balcony! We loved this. We didn't go inside the main building, but it's free to go into the small courtyard. It gets busy, but you can get a good photo. There is a small sewing shop next to it, if you go in, they will stitch your name for free! Then, you can go upstairs and view the balcony from above. Definitely worth a visit and it's on the edge of the best piazza which is full of market stalls.

    Verona card
    I would not pay to enter the house, but it is included with the Verona Card so I went in. You still need to reserve a time slot online (for free) even if you have the Verona Card. The house has no real connection to Juliet (who of course is not real anyway!) but it is an interesting reconstruction of houses of the era. When I went up, the queue for the balcony was about 10 minutes (midweek lunchtime in September). Bear that in mind if you've got someone waiting in the courtyard below to take your photo up there. As you go around the house you can see various views of the balcony and courtyard. If all you want to do is enter the courtyard and see the balcony from there then you do not need to pay.

    Worth a visit but book a slot online ahead of time
    The house is beautiful but there is almost nothing inside to explain what you are looking at. It plays heavily on the Shakespeare theme and cinemas - I would have liked to know more about the real story and the history of the house/family. That said it is worth a visit. The courtyard was heaving, but most people weren’t trying to get to the house. Once we realised this we pushed our way through and managed to get straight in without queuing.

A very small courtyard of supposedly Juliet's house crowded even at 9am. You can pay extra to go in and get a photo on the balcony or be content with the many people touching the breast of Juliet's statue. Luckily it's in the heart of town so we didn't waste time travelling there.

Verona is a great place to visit, so close to the airport and train station and easy to get around. On Mondays a lot of museums are shut - even the arena so don’t get caught out. On the first Sunday of the month a lot of the museums have reduced prices . Saturday night it was very busy and difficult to find somewhere to eat but the other days it was much quieter and we had no problems. The hop on hop off is only once an hour in March so this slowed us down a bit, but overall it was good. If going to see Juliettes house and balcony I recommend doing it early before the crowds - so 9.30! The Verona card is good value and allows you to skip the queue at the Arena. Definitely go to the castle on the hill where you will see amazing views of the city - take the cable car for something different. Enjoy a snack and a drink in one of the 2 eateries up there . Very enjoyable break.

This is a very nice place. The house is well preserved and the exhibit is very nice. We went at opening hour and walked right in with no wait. The courtyard was filled with young and not so young playing a fool in grabbing the cold bronze breasts of Juliette’s statue for a less than amusing picture. There were lots more people out in the courtyard than inside making it very hard for paying patrons to have a picture of the statue, the courtyard, and the balcony. Perhaps the organizers should limit entry to the courtyard to paying patrons only. The fee is €6.00 per person, and not a burden on the wallet I might add. The place is a bit hard to find specially if you use Apple Maps as it puts you on the wrong street. Do your research on the location before you go, so you don’t waste time looking for the place. This is a very cute place so enjoy.

We all know Shakespeare never saw Verona, although there seems to be some traditional background to the story of Romeo and Juliet. But, frankly, does that really matter? The city was capable enough to adapt itself to the myth, becoming the city of lovers in its own right. As this very place testifies. And ultimately, when we visit their supposed houses, her tomb, and so on, we don`t really care if that is the truth or not. In reality we`re honouring both our hope it may have happened, and the genius of the Bard , who brought the story to the world... Enjoy.

We went at the end of June. Truth be told I don't like Venice, Cinque Terra or Verona for the same reason: they are small enough to be ruined by the hoards of tourons. All you hear is English, prices are high, and silly places like this House of Juliet, are inundated with people. Florence, Rome and Naples seem to be big enough to handle the hoards, not Verona. On the other hand, my wife was on a quest to see this balcony and little statue. To each his own I guess, that's why I gave it 2 stars. It was shoulder to shoulder crowded, gum stuck all over the walls leading to the statue of Juliet. It's cute, to touch the statue is free.

Although Covid had reduced the number of tourists there is always a queue at this most famous tourist attraction. We came here after a freak storm because the queue was small. Basically it was just a statue of Juliette and you have about a minute or so to take pictures with her. Her right bosom is shinier because many people tend to touch and rub it but the guard this time forbade such lascivious acts. There was scaffolding behind the statue. To be honest, it was nothing special.

I had already been to Verona and to see Giulettas house years ago but due to the Covid situation it was a completely different experience. Ofcourse it is a lovely place to visit but this time I could appreciate it more as there was hardly anybody there so I could feel myself being transported back in time and enjoy standing there without being jostled by the crowds. However it is always worth a visit, tourists or no tourists!

No, it’s not historically accurate. Still, it’s fun enough to visit and stand on the balcony festuned with fake roses and profess your love to your beloved. With the Verona Card city pass, the price of entry is included, so why not? Sometimes a girl just wants to have fun.

The courtyard of La Casa di Giulietta itself is completely free to enter and visitors queue to see and photograph the bronze statue of Juliet and take part in the popular ritual of rubbing her right breast for luck in love.
If you forget that the balcony was only added in 1936 it is still worth visiting, but if you want to stand on the balcony for an iconic photo you must book your entry ticket online first. (free entry with your Verona Card).
La Casa di Giulietta dates from the 13th century and was once the home of the Cappello family, the inspiration for the Capulet family in Shakespeare’s play. The home was purchased by the City of Verona in 1905 and the iconic balcony (fashioned from a 17th century sarcophagus) was only added in 1936 to help keep the legend of Juliet alive.
You can take a photo looking down on the balcony from the second floor as you walk through the rest of the house.
Luckily we got one of our friends to take our photo of my wife and I on the balcony
