Get Married on the Real Romeo & Juliet Balcony in Verona

Luca Ceccarelli was the first lucky modern Romeo to wed his Juliet on the same Verona balcony said to have been the architectural muse of William Shakespeare -- but he won't be last.

After the soccer star wed Irene Lamforti this week, the infamous balcony has been made available as a 900 euro wedding locale.

"The 13th century mansion of the Cappello family -- believed to be the Capulets of William Shakespeare's tragic play Romeo and Juliet' -- has for years been a place of pilgrimage for lovers worldwide, who have scrawled love messages on its walls," Reuters explains.

So, if you really want to feel like star-crossed lovers, I can think of no more romantic place to say your vows; it's as romantic then as it is now. Stats for Romantic Tragedy Weddings Trending: Older & Mild
