Using the silver since the primary materials, Tiffany jewelry isn't so costly when comparing with platinum or gold ones on the market. Ladies usually purchase numerous lovely Tiffany charms for his or her small babies.

Castelvecchio, Verona









Maybe one of the most beautiful urban castles in Italy, it was the fortress of the local dinasty, and it's now a museum. It features a bridge over the Adige river which had world's largest span at the time of its construction (48.70 m).
