Ciao Venice!

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!

Traveling Thursday in Greece

Traveling Thursday in Greece

#TravelingThursday in Greece! Art made it to the Acropolis of Athens! He had his picture taken in front of the Parthenon, but soon got a bit tired of the hordes of selfie-stick wielding tourists. Art then decided to get away from all the tourists and hangout at the  Erectheion instead. Also located on the Acropolis, the construction of this unique temple was completed in 406 BC. Dedicated to the gods Poseidon and Athena, the Erechtheion is famous for its porch featuring several caryatids (statues serving as columns).
