Fancy a Romeo and Juliet wedding in Verona?

The dream is now a possibility, as the Verona Tourist Board is hoping to woo couples with the promise of Shakespearean romance by inviting them to tie the knot on the balcony where Romeo and Juliet are supposed to have lived. [Via IDoSugar]

‘Juliet’s Balcony’ is located on the second floor of the supposed 14th-century Casa di Giulietta (home of Juliet) in Verona, and is popularly believe to have once been the home of the Capulet family. But as is true of so many tourist attractions, there is little evidence to back up this claim, and you’ll pay 1,000 euros (currently £924) for the priviledge of hiring it out. Sounds steep doesn’t it. But wouldn’t you be tempted by the idea of a kiss on that balcony?
