Parco Sigurtà

Parco Sigurtà is a huge garden close to Verona. You can go around by bicycle, by shuttle, on golf carts, on foot and there is a cute train, as well. We chose the bicycle, and took the kids' and Emanuel's with us, and we rented for the others. We went around 20 km!! Teh kids were amazing. They went up the hill, down the hill and didn't complained. We took some rest at the sponge field, had a picnic and got some refreshing water srom the sprinkles.

Summer things

You haven't heared from us for a while, right? Well, we have been extremely busy. On the 8th of July arrived my aunt Judit with my cousin, Anotnia and they spent 2 weeks with us. We were very busy, we went to Terni, to Florence, to Pisa, to the seashore in Tuscany, we visited a huge botanical garden near to Verona, we ate delicious icecream and we returned to Hungary together. Here is our short Italian tour in pictures:


Piazza dei Miracoli

In front of the baptismal chapel with Antónia

Someone managed to do it with only one hand...

The Giotto tower with its 414 steps

The tower inside

It wasn't wide at all


And finally on the top

Il Ponte Vecchio

The famous David of Michelangelo

Twilight fans, attention!!! We all know the Twilight saga very well, so according to the Antonia's idea we went to Montepulcianóba, where the New moon was filmed! (The city of Volterra was too small.) Here are some pictures, we are very curious to see these places in the movie!!


The famous clock at the main square

The fountain
