In Verona, Italy there’s a house called Casa di Giulietta or Juliet’s House. While Romeo and Juliet are fictional characters, that hasn’t stopped thousands of tourists from flocking to Juliet’s house and attaching their love letters to Juliet’s wall. It’s said that affixing a love letter to the wall will make the love everlasting.
It’s very romantic and evidently very messy as the notes are often stuck to the wall using chewing gum. The Verona city council has now banned the practice except for specially marked panels. The fine for bypassing the special panels and attaching a note to the wall of Juliet’s house is 500 euros.
