Here they can write a secret letter with any romantic questions for advice from Juliet herself, as well as attach a lovelock to the adjacent wall to ensure a lifetime of happiness with their current partner.

If you were considering a trip to Italy, then this city would be a superb weekend getaway from the crowded tourist popular cities of Rome and Venice.
