Gia-Gina Across the Pond

So I've decided to follow my husband to his native Italy. Follow our adventures as we eat, drink, travel, adapt to and explore this remarkable country. Part food blog, part photo blog but mostly my rants and raves. After our two years in Italy, we relocated across the Atlantic "pond" and are back in the States.

Lux Part II

Some examples of the architecture in Luxembourg:



A lovely garden.


The basilica in Echternach is the most important religious building in the country. It contains a magnificent white, marble sarcophagus in which are the remains of St. Willibrord.


The old Benedictine Abbey in Echternac, founded in the 7th century by St. Willibrord.


The Abbey II.


Giordano in front of the palace of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg. The Grand Ducal Palace was constructed between 1572 and 1574 as a town hall in the Spanish Renaissance style. You can visit the palace from 15 July to 2 September.


Deme and Giordano on the main shopping strip in the center of Luxembourg. There were many, many shops as well a nice public market, cool cafes and even a Venetian gelato shop. Giordano was able to order his gelato in Italian and so was I.
