Our Italian wedding and event planner, Virginia, works with our guests to create an unforgettable experience. And, while this article focuses on proposal ideas for Verona, our services extend beyond our Veneto home. 

Italy proposal ideas: Special ways to pop the question 


There are endless romantic places in Italy for your magic moment, but for this post, we want to focus on Verona and its surroundings. 


We know that one of the first places that comes to mind for proposals in Italy is Juliet’s balcony here in Verona, Italy. We know because we do so many of them!


Everyone loves the idea of incorporating the famous star-crossed lovers into their happily ever after.  We’ve done so many of these now, we know just how to work in unique, personal touches for every couple. 


But where our work really shines is building out the day to make it more than that one moment. We also like to give clients other Italy proposal ideas more matched to their personal style and love story. 


Juliet’s Balcony Proposals: One of the Most Popular Places for Proposals in Italy. 


Our most popular Italian wedding proposal experience at Juliet’s Balcony means focused time coordinating exclusive use of this heavily visited tourist site. We manage the paperwork and bureaucracy so you just enjoy the moment.


In addition to the paperwork, we organize a professional photographer to capture it all with personal touches like flowers, sparkling wine to toast, musician, and more. 


We often map out an experience that extends beyond Shakespeare’s famed balcone by working with you to make the lead up to the proposal and / or the celebration your own personal fairytale. 


Unique Italy Proposal Ideas: Make the entire day magical


With so many romantic places in Italy, we create a full experience with our clients by taking advantage of the area’s incredible food, wine, and culture. 


Unique Romeo and Juliet Guide ideas for a full Italian proposal experience: 


  • Start the day with a dress up and makeup session. We coordinate with a local partner to fit you and your betrothed in Shakespearean attire, then have a professional stylist do your makeup and hair. 
  • We love to bring a violinist or opera singer to serenade your special moment. 
  • Add a visit to Club di Giulietta to write a personal letter to Juliet that captures your love story. Here, visitors come year round to respond to letters that come in worldwide in all different languages. In some instances, Juliet’s Balcony is part of our Romeo & Juliet Day with a special letter waiting to accompany the proposal back at Club di Giulietta. 
  • After the YES, move to a private rooftop balcony with breathtaking Verona views to toast and bask in the afterglow. 
  • Be whisked away by private driver to celebrate with a Michelin-star dinner, at a 5-star resort, a spa experience, our pampering options are endless. 
  • After the proposal, extend your time with your professional photograph for an engagement photo session all over Verona, capturing the city’s vibrancy, culture, and your love! 


Italy proposal Ideas: Beyond Juliet’s Balcony


Let us take you beyond Shakepeare’s love story for a romantic proposal experience that is uniquely yours. We regularly custom design proposals in Italy and the following list is just a sampling. And remember, we are a complete Italy travel agency, so we are not limited to Verona and our surroundings. Our creativity goes well beyond our backyard. 


A Wedding Proposal Among the Vines

Let us spirit you away to the rolling vineyard hills of the Valpolicella. We arrange a special tasting experience with time in the vineyards for the big moment. It can include a picnic or aperitivo, a hidden photographer, and more! 


A Lake Garda Proposal 

Take a private motor boat ride to the middle of Lake Garda at sunset, wine at the ready. Maybe even a nearby boat with music playing (and those important hidden cameras!) After the thrill of the YES, move to one of Garda’s lakeside Michelin-star restaurants to celebrate in style. 


A Gondola Ride in Venice

Our private Venice tours make for a great way to get your betrothed out for the day. After exploring the city’s ancient charm, we’ll have a gondola ready for the ride of a lifetime, filled with a bottle of bubbles, flowers, and the photographer nearby to capture it all 


Verona Center

Keep your experience in Verona, Italy’s vibrant city center. How about soaking in the city view from Castel di San Pietro or a private rooftop terrace with a breathtaking view of the ancient Arena.
