I was in lovely Verona last week for work, but still had the time to visit some of the city’s literary locations.

Juliet’s Balcony:

Piazza Dante

Shakespeare’s statue on Verona’s Wall, put there the Juliet’s Club, the association who answers all letters to Juliet. The inscription quotes Romeo and Juliet:

“There is no world without Verona walls,
But purgatory, torture, hell itself.
Hence-banished is banish’d from the world,
And world’s exile is death.”
