Cividale: a jewel of Friuli Venezia-Giulia

From the Romans, to the Longobards, the Carolingians, the Republic of Venice, to the Austrian Empire, Cividale has been an important political and commercial centre for the region Friuli Venezia-Giulia throughout the ages and its past kings and sirs have left some amazing traces of their lives.

Lovely Antwerp

1 Sealinthefog Lovely Antwerp

A month ago we had the chance to visit Belgium. Originally it was a “business” trip, but we took the opportunity and added some holiday.
