Many movies have been filmed in Verona, like “Romeo and Juliet”, “Letter’s to Juliet”, “Long distance Relationship”, “Nightfire” and the most famous, “Spartacus”. Verona is introduced with a flurry of establishing shots: its bustling main square, Piazza delle Erbe; the fortified 14th Century Ponte Scaligero over the Adige River; and the Arena, the huge Roman amphitheatre, now used to stage music events, on Piazza Bra. You can see the amphitheatre in all its impressive glory in the 1961 epic Barabbas. It is just west of Piazza delle Erbe that Sophie looks up Scaletta San Marco, the stone staircase running up from Via Pellicciai, to see Victor on the balcony of the building used as their ‘Pensione Verona’ hotel, on Vicolo San Marco in Foro. Verona is, of course, the setting for Shakespeare’s “Romeo And Juliet”, and south from Piazza delle Erbe runs Via Cappello, where You will find Verona’s most famous tourist attraction, and the heart of the film’s story, Casa di Giulietta, Via Cappello 23 – the ‘House of Juliet’.
