The Etruscan church on the hillside near Tuscania (the Chiesa di S. Pietro) in the province of Viterbo, Lazio, was used for four principal settings in the movie: (i) the interior scenes for the Cathedral in Verona; (ii) the interior to the convent church and Friar Laurence’s cell; (iii) Friar John’s departure for Mantua; and (iv) the interior scenes for the Capulets’ crypt.
To the right of the church are the two towers (the Lavello Towers), the perimeter of which was used as the convent garden.
In particular, the interior for the church was used for filming:
Scene 25: The Nurse meets Romeo to arrange the marriage (nave)
Scene 28: The marriage of Romeo and Juliet (nave and sanctuary)
Scene 48: As part of Friar Laurence’s cell
The garden outside the adjacent Lavello Towers was used for filming:
Scene 23: The convent garden outside the walls of Verona where Friar Laurence picks his medicinal herbs
The exterior of the church was used for filming:
Scene 50: Friar John departs for Mantua
The crypt of the church was used for filming:
