Walking to the Palazzo Mansi
A carriage was displayed in the entrance of the Palazzo Mansi
Waiting in the courtyard of the palace before the tour
I just adore this pelisse!!
And Corina's gorgeous spencer (I already had a photo of the front :) !)
Now onto the amazing rooms in the palace.
John and Aylwen - so sweet. :)
I loved this painting - all the costumes and hairstyle details.
Jeanette was always sneakily taking photos of everyone and managing to get out of everyone else's!! But I did manage to snap one picture of her
Relaxing on a comfy sofa - we did a lot of walking that day.
A fabulous ceiling
Aylwen stroking a dog :)
Aurora and Jeanette - the light was a bit iffy in this particular room, which meant all the photos I took in it seemed to come out with a cloudy haze over them. :(
One always has to have a photo of "When Regency collides with the modern world". Oh and I love their outfits!!! :) Actually every outfit that they wore was gorgeous.
I think this was a table top - anyway whatever it was, I just love the beautiful detail.
There were quite a few bedroom in this particular palace...
As amazing as this bed is, I don't think I would feel comfortable sleeping in it
This one is a bit better.
Aurora and I being silly. :)
Aylwen and John. :)
another couple of gorgeous ceilings
And my bed (well the bed I want :) )
And just to prove how much I wanted it I was a bit naughty and perched on the end of it. Soon after a room steward came in and started telling us off in Italian! :(
A bizarre photo of me, but I quite like it.
I'm sorry this post is very ceiling-photos heavy. There were just so many beautiful ceilings! :)
And finally a sedan chair. I really wanted one of these by the middle of the afternoon as going round 2 palaces and on a walking tour of the town meant that my feet were aching.
I was going to talk about the other palace and the walk in this post, but I think this one is long enough, so I will have to leave them for the next post. :)
