My mom took these awesome pictures last week.
This time my vacation with my mom went to Limone Sul Garda by Lake Garda in Northern Italy. We stayed at Hotel Garda Bellevue and had the most incredible view from our balcony.
This trip was to the town of Motovun. I was lazy and stayed home at the hotel that day, but I thought I’d share the pictures my mom took.
Motovun is a medieval town that grew up on the site of an ancient city called Castellieri. It is on a hill 270 metres (886 feet) above sea level with houses scattered all over the hill. In ancient times, both Celts and Illyrians built their fortresses at the location of present-day Motovun. The name of the village is also of Celtic origin, derived from Montona, meaning “a town in the hills”. Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motovun
One of the days in our vacation we visited Pula with the beautiful amphitheatre.
The Pula Arena (Croatian: Pulska Arena; Italian: Arena di Pola) is a Roman amphitheatre located in Pula, Croatia. It is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers entirely preserved. It was constructed between 27 BC and AD 68, and is among the world’s six largest surviving Roman arenas. The arena is also the country’s best-preserved ancient monument.

Behind the amphitheatre was a church. Around the amphitheatre was a garden full of gorgeous herbs like rosemary and lavender. On the picture below is a rendition of Pula.

From Pula we continued to the city Rovijn
I let my mom climbe the hill up to the church while I took a break with some refreshments.
