  1. Thank heavens it's still there!

  2. Oh my goodness, how wonderful. It's certainly a lovely place! Thanks for sharing this!

  3. The red carriage drawn by six white horses is a grand affair.

  4. It's so interesting to look at the painting and then click on the current street view. It hasn't changed! I clicked on the Villa link and was surprised to read the Villa was badly damaged during World War II and had to be rebuilt. They did a great job, because it looks exactly the same.

  5. A nice painting and an equally nice adaptation of the surname Van Wikkel to Vanvitelli!
