Summer in Italy 2015 - Venice postcards


"Il viaggio: un partire da me, un infinito di distanze infinite e un arrivare a me."
 (Antonio Porchia)


"Il viaggio è una specie di porta attraverso la quale si esce dalla realtà come per
 penetrare in una realtà inesplorata che sembra un sogno."
 (Guy de Maupassant)
"Viaggiare è come innamorarsi: il mondo si fa nuovo…"
 (Jan Myrdal)

"Nel viaggio c’è un certo sapore di libertà, di semplicità… un certo fascino dell’orizzonte 
senza limiti, del percorso senza ritorno, 
delle notte senza tetto, della vita senza superfluo."
 (Théodore Monod)

"Diversivo, distrazione, fantasia, cambiamenti di moda, di cibo, amore e paesaggio. 
Ne abbiamo bisogno come dell’aria che respiriamo."
 (Bruce Chatwin)
"Viaggiando alla scoperta dei paesi troverai il continente in te stesso."
 (Proverbio indiano)

Manaresi winery, Zola Predosa (BO) - Italy

The Manaresi winery  is such a lovely place, 
run by Donatella Agostoni and her husband Fabio Bottonelli.
About 12 km west from Bologna, the place is worth a visit!





We were kindly welcome in this pleasant visit by Fabio Bottonelli
who showed us the place, the amazing 
view from the wineries,  the taste of the wine...
and told us about Paolo Manaresi (Donatella's  grand father).
Paolo Manaresi was an artist and the wine estate that has been named after him.













Enjoying the fantastic view, the delicious wine and visiting the place,
 you can certainly feel all the wine and art passion
 from Fabio and Donatella, the owners of Manaresi Winery.
Every little detail they built in this place makes the winery so special!

An immersion in Beaux Arts at the Louvre, Paris - France

Since I moved to Luxembourg in 2009, 
I've visited Paris a couple of times and so, the Louvre.
I've already published posts with pictures from there, but today
 I'm showing you the Louvre with my heart!
 I do love this museum!




I love the fact you can take pictures inside the Louvre! 
Yes...you can bring home your favorite moments with your camera!
 I have lots of pictures and I would like to show you some of my "cup of tea" at the Louvre.











There is so much beauty to see at the Louvre.
 Last time, I enjoyed a lot the Hall Napoléon and Napoléon III Apartments for instance!
It's always good to plan your visit and check the exhibitions and events on the Louvre's site.













I'm including as usual some practical links but please keep one thing in mind
 if you are planing your trip to the Louvre: buy your ticket in advance! 
You don't want to wait in long lines, right?
