If you’re a lover of love and hopelessly romantic love stories, you’re bound to know Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” The story of Romeo and Juliet has inspired the storylines of TV shows and movies through pop culture history and now you can experience it in real life. 

Airbnb has put together the experience of a lifetime and announced Tuesday that they will be allowing one couple to stay at the Casa di Giulietta in Verona, Italy this Valentine’s Day. 

The chosen couple will be sleeping in the very same bed that was used in the 1968 film “Romeo and Juliet.”

The townhouse dates back to the 13th century and has been opened since the 1930s to the public as a museum. The couple will be given a full tour of Casa di Giulietta and Verona, a personal butler and a romantic candlelit dinner cooked by Michelin-starred chef Giancarlo Perbellini.

The mayor of the Verona municipality, Federico Sboarina says in a statement: “Juliet’s House is the most important museum in the City of Verona, attracting millions of visitors each year. Partnering with Airbnb brings the widely known Shakespearian myth of Romeo and Juliet to life in a way never before offered.”

He goes on to say, “We are excited to promote our cultural heritage, share traditions that were previously safeguarded, and bring international visibility to the City of Verona.”

According to Airbnb, they worked with an Italian architect to make the residence ready for the winning couple. 

Sounds like a dream, right?

To enter, all you have to do is write a letter to “Juliet” and her Juliet Club (apply here) explaining why you and your bae deserve this once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

Hurry, because the contest ends on February 2nd at 11:59 EST.
