'Juliet' balcony to host weddings





The authorities in the Italian city of Verona - setting for the tale of the two lovers - say they want to foster its image as a centre for romance.

The Casa Di Giulietta (house of Juliet) is in the heart of Verona.

Folklore suggests it was once the home of the Cappello family - possibly the model for the Capulets in Shakespeare's fictional play, Romeo and Juliet.

Although some historians say there is scant evidence to back this up, the balcony on the 14th century building is still one of the city's most popular tourist destinations.

From next month, you will be able to hire it as a venue for weddings.
