In Travel News by The H4C Team

Is this the most romantic competition ever? One lucky couple will spend Valentine’s Day like Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in Juliet’s historic home Casa di Giulietta in Verona, Italy. Airbnb helped transform the 13th-century townhouse into an exclusive medieval-themed overnighter, featuring the original bed used in Zeffirelli’s classic 1960s movie Romeo and Juliet. First time ever. One night only. We are obviously … obsessed!!

Airbnb worked with an Italian architect to prepare for a modern-day Romeo & Juliet, showcasing the original bed used in Zeffirelli’s 1960s classic Romeo and Juliet.

The winning sweethearts will also enjoy a candlelit dinner prepared by two-Michelin star chef Giancarlo Perbellini, a themed tour of Verona, and unprecedented access to Juliet’s love letters (sent by lovers around the world each year).  “This Stay will give one couple the unique chance to celebrate their love in what is possibly the most romantic home in the history of literature” notes Giacomo Trovato, General Manager for Italy at Airbnb.

All you need do is pen your own letter to Juliet, explaining why you and your beloved would make the perfect modern-day R&J. Entries close Monday 03 February 2020.
