Verona considering entry fee to see Juliet's home

'Honeymoon suite' would go for up to 5,000 euros

Verona considering entry fee to see Juliet's home

Verona, May 15 - Romance in the city of star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliette may soon get a bit more expensive. The City of Verona is considering charging visitors two euros each to enter the courtyard that legend says belongs to the home of Shakespeare's wretched Juliet, who died for love. The entrance to the courtyard, where visitors come to see Juliet's balcony and imagine Romeo standing beneath, is slated for redevelopment. City officials want to create a new entry linked to other Verona sights. Another idea being floated is creating a special suite on the top floor of the building where Juliet reportedly lived, to be leased to rich honeymooners at a rate of as much as five-thousand euros per night.
