Win A One-In-A-Lifetime Stay At Juliet's House In Verona This Valentine's Day
The Casa di Giulietta in Verona, Italy attracts millions of hopeless romantics every year as an important monument of love and literary history. For the first time ever, however, one lucky Romeo and Juliet will be able to stay at this famous thirteenth-century landmark for one night on Valentine's Day, complete with a special dinner cooked by a Michelin-starred chef, a romantic photoshoot and other one-of-a-kind experiences.
Here's what in store:
Organised by Airbnb, Juliet's House has been tastefully refurbished by an Italian designer just for the occasion. Upon arrival, the lucky couple, who will be the first to stay in Juliet's House since 1930, will be met by a personal butler and invited to enjoy a wonderful candlelit dinner prepared by celebrated chef Giancarlo Perbellini. Chef Perbellini, whose eponymous two-Michelin starred restaurant is a destination itself for foodies in the city of Verona, will serve a special five-course Valentine's Day dinner. On the cards are dishes like gnocchi with cauliflower cream, Lessinia truffle and Amarone risotto with pumpkin cream and hazelnut, all with wine pairing of course.
When it's time to turn off the lights, lovebirds will retire to Juliet's medieval bedroom featuring Letto di Guilietta, the original bed used in Zeffirelli's 1960 film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
After a night of feasting and romance, guests will be treated to another highly exclusive experience the following day. They will be taken to a special place at the heart of Verona where thousands of love letters are sent from all over the world in the tradition of Romeo and Juliet. Here, a team known as Juliet's Secretaries are busy everyday writing replies to each and every letter received. The lucky couple will get to learn more about the story of the star-crossed lovers as they try their hand in responding to some letters themselves before finishing off this once-in-a-lifetime fairytale experience with a photoshoot in the most romantic spots of Italy's City of Love.
