"Romeo and Juliet=Superman and Smallville" Verona Tourist Trap Tip by hindu1936

Verona Tourist Traps: 55 reviews and 71 photos

Paying to see "The Home of Juliet" is about as reasonable as paying to see the home where Clark Kent grew up, or where Sherlock Holmes lived. The wife of a person whose hobby was reading about Sherlock Holmes paid a small fortune for a pipe said to have belonged to the FICTIONAL detective. The husband graciously did not ridicule the wife nor laugh at her ingenuous naivety. In 1963, when I was through (quickly) Verona, most of the people paid little attention to the tourist value. Now that tourist dollars are important it seems that anything is for sale to the gullible.
