Juliet’s house

Juliet's House


The house was built in the 13th century and, as can be seen from the coat of arms carved into archway inside the courtyard, for a long time belonged to the Cappello family. 

Identifying the Cappello family with the Capuleti gave rise to the theory that this was the home of Shakespeare’s heroine.

The house’s current appearance dates back to a 20th restoration which intended to give the building an “ideal” medieval look.

The internal façade is of brickwork, with a portal is in the gothic style,  triple arched windows and a balustrade connecting the various parts of the building. What dominates, however, is the famous balcony

Inside the house are furnishings from the 16th-17th centuries, frescoes relating the story of Romeo and Juliet and Veronese Renaissance ceramics.  The rooms on the top floor have triple-arched wooden ceilings with panelling painted in blue with gold stars.
A bronze statue of Juliet by sculptor Nereo Costantini stands in the courtyard.
