Romeo & Juliet House in Italy is available for Rent for Valentine’s Day
Forget flowers and chocolates. This Valentine’s Day, you can get the love of your life something truly special: A stay at Juliet’s real house in Verona, Italy.
Just in time for the holiday, Airbnb announced that one lucky lovestruck couple will get to be the first to spend the night in the historic house that has long been believed to be the real home of Shakespeare’s Juliet. The home, known as Casa di Giulietta, has drawn thousands of romantics who come to see its iconic balcony. And now, one winner and their partner will be given unprecedented access to the 13th-century building, including the balcony.
During the stay, the couple will be waited on by a personal butler and treated to a romantic candlelit dinner prepared by two-Michelin-star chef Giancarlo Perbellini. After the feast, the couple will retire to Juliet’s medieval-themed bedroom, which happens to feature “Letto di Giulietta” (a.k.a. the original bed used in Zeffirelli’s classic 1960s movie, Romeo and Juliet).
For a chance to win, applicants must pen their own letter to Juliet, sharing their love story and why they and their partner would be the perfect guests. Entries can be submitted at airbnb.com/juliet until 11:59 p.m. EST on Feb. 2, 2020.
