[Photo Journal] Tomba Di Giulietta (Verona)

Juliet's Tomb in Verona


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Tomba Di Giulietta (Juliet’s Tomb)

Address: Via Luigi da Porto, 5, 37122 Verona VR, Italy


Last week, I shared photographs from Casa Di Giulietta or Juliet’s House. I thought that we might as well come full circle by looking at her tomb. These photographs were taken while we were in Verona last year: the home of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

“These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder
Which, as they kiss, consume” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
“My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“Come, gentle night; come, loving, black-browed night;
Give me my Romeo; and, when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night…” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
“But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? 
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. 
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, 
Who is already sick and pale with grief, 
That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she. 
Be not her maid, since she is envious; 
Her vestal livery is but sick and green 
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady, O, it is my love!
Oh, that she knew she were!” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“Out of her favour, where I am in love.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“The sweetest honey is loathsome in its own deliciousness. And in the taste destroys the appetite. Therefore, love moderately.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“One pain is lessened by another’s anguish. … Take thou some new infection to thy eye, And the rank poison of the old will die.” 
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
