Afternoon at the Palace

Hello everyone!

It’s nearly the end of the day now, but I had the best sunday ever so i wanted to share a bit of this day on the blog!

This morning was defined with such horrible weather and don’t get me wrong I love staying at home when this happens but since it was this bad yesterday too, I fancied a change… so I though why not go and get all tourist like in my own city!

I know for a fact that Mantova has a jewel from the renaissance period is often visited by a lot tourist  during fall and spring… and since I had nothing better to do… I followed this odd idea … and took a chance to check out some beauty of my city with new eyes starting with the Ducal Palace home to masterpiece from great artist and symbol of royal power … and let me tell you this was so fascinating!

We often dream about visiting far away places and we give for granted the wonderful things that stand right in front of us!

If some of you saw the 2013 Romeo and Juliet movie, the one with Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth  most of that film was set actually in this palace even though it the movie timeline lots of environments were used to portray the Verona too…so  if you happen to pop by this area in Italy please pay a visit to Mantua, I assure you that you won’t regret it!:)














I hope you have a lovely night! And that this post different from what I usually blab about did not bore you too much 🙂
