Letters to Juliet

My most recent Netflix movie was Letters to Juliet, starring Amanda Seyfried. I'm a sucker for a romantic comedy (even the ones that are entirely predictable off of a 3-minute preview).

Well this movie was totally predictable (as expected), but was light, enjoyable, and easy to watch. My favorite part was probably the setting itself. The movie took place in Verona, home to Juliet's balcony, a place where girls leave love letters or tokens of loves lost for Juliet to answer. Who knew?

Basically, what this movie reaffirmed for me is...that the next time I return to Italy, I definitely need to explore some new cities, Verona being one of them. And if and when that time does come, I'm sure I could whip out my high school copy of Romeo and Juliet and brush up on my verses OR just fancy a visit to Juliet's balcony and see the literary landmark in person.
