No history here and it’s all manufactured for tourists. On that topic it is teaming with people, scruffy and difficult to get in and out. Frankly my advice is forget it! It is totally irrelevant and not worth the effort.

As you know Juliet is a fictional character and was not real so she’ve never lived in this house and never stood on this balcony BUT when you are in Verona you must stop by and play along. :) It’s a very crowded place but just try not to stress about it and relax. At the end, you are most likely on your vacation. Wait in line to take a picture with the statue of Juliet outside in the yard and then enter the house (the fee is €6 and totally worth it in my opinion). You can start by snapping your picture on the balcony (there is a small line there too) and then look around. I truly liked this place. There is some furniture from the times when Romeo and Juliet were created, some art works about the famous couple and even movie props (Juliet’s bedroom in particular) and costumes from the movie set. In one of the rooms you can write an email to Juliet for fun (there are so called Juliet’s secretaries who answer everybody who writes her for an advice). Despite the crowd that was a bit annoying I enjoyed it all and I recommend it for a visit.

A multicultural throng of tourists mill about in the entrance and internal courtyard, getting in each other's way and competing to touch the statue. All ground level walls are heavily grafitti-clad, which I thought was kind of sweet, and evidence of how much people do adore good stories as well as gimmicks. It also reminded me of the tone of Baz Luhrman's 1996 film 'Romeo & Juliet', so seemed fitting from a contemporary point of view.
I was surprised at how few people entered the house (the five storey 'casa'). It's only 6 euro (or free on your Verona 24 or 48 hour pass), and if you venture all the way to Italy you may as well make the effort to go inside and explore. While it's not an actual museum, it is an interesting architectural space to look around, as it originates in the 12th Century and has been restored and many parts recreated to be reflect medieval domestic life.
I enjoyed being there, and taking several selfies on the balcony, as well as examining the building's interior. I don't care if it's a fictitious site, as many say it is. It is indicative of the Cappelletti family's real living environment, so has historic interest value in that way. It would be good if it housed an actual museum displaying artefacts from the 12th-14th Century. Basically, it's medieval scenography, with a scarce amount of props inside! Fun, none-the-less, and a must see when in Verona, partly coz everyone wants to debate whether it was worthwhile or not! Only takes 30-45 mins to whizz about.

Of course this is must to see in Verona. Been there, done that. It was a little bit disappointment as this wasn't so romantic place as expected. Too many noisy tourists in small yard in same time. Entrance was in shameless condition as walls are full of ugly mess.
