Transcendent Architecture - Italy

On my wish list is Italy - the Italian countryside, the Italian coast, anything where there are cobblestone roads, beautiful villas, majestic views. Dreaming, just dreaming, although amazingly enough the husband would like to go too! So maybe I should start a savings fund?
But for now I'll just drool over the beautiful Italian architecture:

Villa Orso from

Italian Villa on Lake Como from

Verone - famous for the house and balcony said to belong to Juliet in the Shakespeare story, Romeo and Juliet - from


All so beautiful and romantic. The architecture is surprisingly simple and yet rich with elegant details and texture. The arches, the color, the combination of materials all combine to make a rich landscape that is a pleasure for the eye and heart.

Come sei bella!
