Walking in the footsteps of Shakespeare
Just a few steps away from Verona’s Gothic Arche Scaligere, you can find one of the landmarks of the most famous Shakespearean tragedy: Romeo’s House. The palace, of medieval origin, is still well preserved today and features a typically Gothic façade that will immediately transport your imagination to the times when the dramatic story of Romeo and Juliet unfolded.
According to historians, the Montague family to which the young protagonist of Shakespeare's play belonged lived in this very area of Verona. This is why some believe that this building was their home, which according to the most accredited historical reconstructions, actually belonged to Cagnolo Nogarola.
Today the palace is privately owned and cannot be visited. You can, however, admire its elegant exterior and read the inscription on the façade that recalls the tragic end of the two lovers from Verona.
