The city of Verona may be the most romantic place in Italy.
Not least, of course, for being the setting for William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a tragedy of course and, in particular, the famous balcony where Juliet was won over by her Romeo.
Although the actual building dates from the 14th century, the balcony may just not, but who cares.
Over one million visitors to the spot make this one of the country's must visit attractions.
In the Spring of 2009, the balcony was in the news when the Verona authorities announced they were allowing couples to take their wedding vows here.
