Sunset promenade at Naviglio Grande (Grand Canal), an artificial waterway in Milan – Italy.
On the banks of the Naviglio formerly lived workers and artisans. Today the area of the Naviglio is a romantic area to stroll. Artists’ studios, original shops, romantic pubs, flea markets, and concerts make the area the Naviglio is a unique venue.
It wasn’t even the best late afternoon, but somehow we ended up with this marvel and I had to take the opportunity. It’s a beautiful place.
“To fully discover Porto and its history you must go to Foz do Douro. Facing the Atlantic you’ll be struck by an incredible quality of life, the utmost romantic walks where every evening sun and sea merge into one spectacular climax.
These beaches proudly display the blue flag eco-label, a sign of high quality unpolluted seawater. Take a stroll under the “Pergola da Foz” built in the 1930s. As the story goes, the Mayor of Porto’s wife at the time, had been so enchanted by the pergola of the “Promenade des Anglais » in the French town of Nice that she simply had to have the same in Porto. Here it is called the “Praia dos Ingleses” a reminder that the English (and other British citizens!) have always enjoyed a close relationship with Portugal.”
