Claude Monet and the bridge at Dolceacqua


This is Dolceacqua's famous humpback stone medieval bridge and in the lower left hand corner Claude Monet's painting of it. Monet visited Dolceacqua, along with Renoir, in 1884.  Monet described the bridge as 'a jewel of lightness.'

Voici le fameux pont médiéval à dos d'âne en pierre de Dolceacqua et dans le coin inférieur gauche, la peinture  de celui-ci par  Claude Monet. Monet a visité Dolceacqua avec Renoir et il a décrit le pont comme un " bijou de légèreté ".

The Italian Flag


We've popped across the Italian border today. Note the reflection of the Italian flags in the River Nervia - at Dolceacqua.

A Sign in Dolceacqua


What's so incongruous about this sign is that it's at a window high up on the left-hand side of this
medieval square in Dolceacqua, just across the Italian border and a little way out of Ventimiglia. Somehow the style of the sign doesn't go with the ancient stones but hey, it gets noticed - so long as you look up.
