Catholic Church, Santa Trinita' The church was built in the 1100's, but was further transformed during the 1300's and then finally in the early Renaissance its present design was completed. Located in one of the most important and central streets in Florence. This magnificent Church with its majestic renaissance faรงade dominates a small square just few steps away from the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio. The interior is formed by three naves divided by columns with lovely arches and vaulted ceilings. Completely restored to its beauty, it has some stunning frescoes by Ghirlandaio and marble works by Luca della Robbia.
Magnificent 17th Century Baroque Church After years of partial closure, the church of Saints Michael and Cajetan finally returns once more for everyoneâ€™s admiration as a place where artistic beauty exceeds. The Church represents one of the most substantial realizations of Florentine architecture of the 17th century and may undoubtedly be considered as the coffer of Florentine baroque, for the quality and quantity of treasures contained in it. Indeed, in the forms we currently admire, the building was reconstructed in 1604 on the place of an older church, put up at the north-west corner of the Roman-walls, dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, the origins of which were documented in 1055.

The Church Of San Giacomo Dell'orio The Church of San Giacomo dell'Orio lies in the Santa Croce area of Venice, in a quiet district within the first bend of the Grand Canal. The church is an old one, founded before the tenth century and rebuilt in the thirteenth. It contains a few interesting historical features and some good paintings. The church is included in the Chorus Pass initiative.
San Giacomo dell'Orio is one of those distorted Venetian names, and one of which no-one now knows the origins. Although San Giacomo is St. James, guesses for the dell'Orio part are as diverse as St. James of the Wolf, or St. James of the Laurel. After the church's old but humble exterior, the interior comes as a rather unexpected patchwork of history. One of the highlights is a glamorous green marble column, probably looted by the Venetians from somewhere in the East. Around the high altar there is some attractive Renaissance decoration of coloured marbles, although the rest of the walls have a rather bare look. The ceiling, which is showing its great age, is made of painted and carved wood, one of two preserved ship's-keel ceilings in Venice (the other is in Santo Stefano). As well as exploiting the Venetians' shipbuilding skills, this type of roof also lightens the load on the building's foundations. There are quite a few interesting paintings to view: many works by Palma il Giovane, including rich representations of St. Laurence presenting his Church's treasures (the poor), and roasting on his grill (to be found in the left transept). There are also works by Veronese and a good painting of three plague saints: Roch, Laurence and Sebastian by Buonconsiglio. The painting behind the high altar is a Madonna by Lorenzo Lotto. It's worth taking a look at the interesting small statues dotted around the church, some of which are unusual and rather sweet.
San Giacomo dell'Orio is in the Santa Croce area of Venice. Although it is located on the square named after it, Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio, the church's facade and entrance are actually around the corner, facing onto a small canal or rio. The nearest vaporetto stops are Riva de Biasio and San Stae.
Civil Weddings At Palazzo Cavalli The Municipality of Venice provides couples from all over the world with the opportunity to pronounce their irrevocable "I do" by emerging themselves in the romantic atmosphere which only this lagoon city can offer. Inside the building a series of rooms is set aside for the bride and groom, offering a breathtaking panorama over the Grand Canal and including a privileged view of the Rialto Bridge.
Of course, the most thrilling way to arrive is by gondola, accompanied by the delicate lapping of the water and by the magnificence of the façades of the palazzi which provide the ideal backdrop for a fairy-tale setting. The historical Palazzo Cavalli stands in one of the most picturesque areas of Venice, overlooking the Grand Canal close to the Rialto Bridge. It is a three-floor, XVI century Renaissance building whose façade is characterised by a sequence of stone corbels above the base, which support the two main floors with their four- and one-mullioned windows. A visit here means discovering a wonderful room with XVIII century stuccoes. The building takes its name from the Cavalli family who lived there; it was also the residence of the American novelist James Fenimore Cooper and of the art scholar Aldo Ravà who furnished the Palazzo in the typical, XVIII century Venetian style, with original paintings, furniture and ceramics. Inside, a series of elegantly furnished rooms on the piano nobile are devoted to the bride and groom. The largest is full of light, with large windows overlooking the Grand Canal taking up one whole wall and providing a definitely privileged panorama. In it you can also admire an impressive painting entitled "The Golden Wedding" dating from 1909. The painting, an oil on canvas measuring 120 cm. by 207 cm., is a work by the famous Venetian artist Luigi Nono (1850-1918). A delightful adjoining smaller room, finely decorated and enriched with period furniture, welcomes the bride and groom by providing a view of the unique and extraordinary Rialto Bridge.
The beauty and charm of the setting are further enhanced by the welcome and tact reserved for those couples who choose to celebrate their marriage in Venice. In Palazzo Cavalli the bride and groom will have a group of expert people at their disposal, ready to create a magic and solemn atmosphere for their most romantic of days. Be part of a fairy-tale, by choosing any day of the week at your favourite time of year.
Lake Garda Venues Malcesine PiĂš The intense light, the sun dancing on the crests of the lake and the radiant sunsets arouse unique and unrepeatable sensations in Malcesineâ€Ś Lights and shadows define the imposing masses of the steep slopes that rise almost menacingly above the deep, inaccessible gorges of Mount
Baldo, the ancient testimony of chaotic and devastating cataclysms that shaped a rough and difficult environment, in stark contrast with the small inhabited area, the fruit of landslides that the Mediterranean climate and the slow work of nature and man have softened, with hillsides rich with olives, cypress trees and oleanders. Many gardens still host lemon trees laden with fragrant flowers and golden fruits, which stand out among the intensely green fronds, the remains of more ancient and vaster lemon-houses, which time and urban expansion have irretrievably cancelled. The castle of Malcesine has been reconstructed by the Scaligers with breathtaking view of the lake and the town. It is also available for outdoor civil weddings : a fairytale venue for the most important day of your Life! Malcesine is surely a superb location for a wedding, offering an unbeatable climate and a long list of entertainment options!
