Villa Novare

I drove into the country the other day, just a few miles from Verona, in the hills of Valpolicella, famous for the wine production.
Reaching the village of Arbizzano my attention was drawn by a small sign indicating "Villa Novare". I turned into the small driveway and after a few hundred meters into the vines, I found myself in front of this beautiful XVIIIth century villa. There was no one in sight, the air was still and the sun shone. I got out of the car and took a few photos...

One never knows what one might find up a strange road ... and you wouldn't want to be up that road without your camera!

Fine photo of a gorgeous place. Lots of history here, I would guess.

I wish your aunt or a friend owned the place so you could show us some photos inside and other photos! What a marvelous "palace!"
