Ciao Venice!

Art - Venice

Art went to Venice! After touring the Piazza San Marco and the basilica, he decided to see the view across the lagoon. Pictured in the background is the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore. Designed by Andrea Palladio, this Renaissance building can be seen gleaming across the water. Art planned on crossing the lagoon via gondola to visit the church until it started raining, so he settled for a coffee in a cafe instead!

Art Villa Farnesina

It’s already getting warmer in Rome and Art decided to spend some time inside the Villa Farnesina! Located in the beautiful Trastevere district of Rome, this Renaissance Villa was built in the 16th Century for a banker named Agostino Chigi. The house is filled with frescos done by Raphael, Il Sodomo, and several other famous artists. Art’s favorite room was the Hall of the Perspective Views which was designed by Baldassarre Peruzzi in 1519.

After minding the gap exiting the tube in London, Art emerged from Westminster Station to behold a wonderful view of Elizabeth Tower at nighttime. Inside the clock tower is a bell known as Big Ben whose chimes can be heard within a five mile radius!
