Do you want to change your lover?

If yes, then you should go to Verona. Shakespear's romantic story of Romeo & Juliet is set here, based on the family feuding notably in the 13th & 14th century.

Through a doorway full of graffiti, you are ushered into the courtyard of Juliet's residence. There stands a bronze statue of Juliet, right under the literature's most celebrated balcony, where Juliet was said to be courted by Romeo.

Superstition or rumour or whatever says that if you rub the right breast of Juliet's statue, you will get yourself a new lover :D Because of this 'legend', the poor Juliet has been molested by hundreds, if not thousands of tourists everyday.
