California travel expert Veronica Hill of www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com tours Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in this episode of "California Travel Tips." Millions of tourists pass through the arches of Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle, but few take the time to explore this amazing landmark. Modeled after the magnificent castle Neu Schwanstein in the Bavarian Alps, this beautiful wood-and-stone reproduction debuted with the Anaheim theme park in 1955. The working drawbridge, surrounded by a moat with friendly ducks, was lowered on opening day and in 1983 during the reopening of Fantasyland. No detail was spared building Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle, from its gold-plated squirrel gargoyles, spires and turrets, to its regal flags, clock chandelier and intricate windows and wooden doors. Look closely on the ground leading to the castle and you'll discover a time capsule buried during the theme parks 40th anniversary. Above the entrance arches you'll see the Walt Disney family crest. You can look for your own family name in the Castle Heraldry Shop while admiring its Knights of Armor and spiked maces on display. Inside the castle, a magic crystal boutique entices shoppers, or you can take a closer look at the drawbridge's mechanics. The castle's namesake is honored with murals from the movie and a bronze drinking fountain featuring Princess Aurora and Prince Philip. In the west hall, you'll discover a display of princess memorabilia, including a cheerful bluebird ...

A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Tivoli, Italy by TravelPod blogger Ahartry titled "Villas of Tivoli" Ahartry's travel blog entry: "The day dawned clear and bright - lovely. We breakfasted, then left our flat a little before 09.00h. When we arrived at the Trevi Fountain, the crowd was substantially smaller than it had been previously. The fountain was being cleaned ... but, as it was almost 09.00h, we decided to wait to see if they turned it on ... and, indeed, it was not long before the fountain began to flow. The Trevi Fountain is really very absurd. It sits in a very small piazza - really more of an opening between buildings where three roads come together. A giant figure of Neptune seems to burst out of the building, while, below him, two other figures wrestle with massive horses. It seems to epitomize baroque excess. From the Trevi, we walked to the church of Santa Maria Maggiore - our first foray into Vatican Territory (oooh). The main basilica dates back to the 5th century CE, and the original mosaics are intact. Unfortunately, they are so high above the floor that it is impossible to see them much at all. Instead, we went around the outside, gaping at the very elaborate chapels and, beneath the altar, the golden and silver urn that supposedly contains a fragment of Jesus' crib. From the church, we went a few blocks to the train station. The signs to the Rental Cars seemed to lead us in circles, but, after several kilometres of walking, we found ...

www.SaturdayMorningDiet.com- second in our series of taking the diet on vacation to Puerto Vallarta, MexicoPuerto Vallarta is famous for its Malecon that stretches along the impressive beach. This is obviously one of the best places in the city to take a walk. PV is great. Lots of great eats. Go to Playa de los Muertos. Its in the old PV. This is the beach that started ALL of the tourist to go during Elizabet Taylor and Richard Burton Movie in the 60's. There is a great Restaurant Beach bungalow type eats called "El Dorado" right on the sand. Have some drinks there and maybe a fish on a stick. Highly recomend. Walk the "MALECON" in middle of town (Ocean Boardwalk) after dinner in one of the MANY Restaurants there. Lots of galleries, shops,etc. The beaches south of PV are BY FAR much nicer (SAND & WATER WISE) than north of PV. PV is safe. Lots of tourists from all over the world. The Dolphins" is located next to the Los Arcos Amphitheater on the Malecon, in El Centro. This fountain is a modern bronze sculpture sitting atop a circular domed shape fountain. Sculptor James Bottoms created it as a gift to Puerto Vallarta from sister city, Santa Barbara California. The three dolphins in the monument represent the brotherhood of the two cities and the friendship that unites them. Each dolphin appears to look in a different direction, one towards the city, one towards the sky and the other to the sea.

Manneken Pis (help·info) (literally little man pee in Marols, a dialect spoken in Brussels, also known in French as le Petit Julien), is a famous Brussels landmark. It is a small bronze fountain sculpture depicting a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin. It was designed by Jerome Duquesnoy and put in place in 1618 or 1619. It bears a similar cultural significance as Copenhagen's Little Mermaid.

A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Segovia, Spain by TravelPod blogger Zento titled "Of palaces, castles and cathedrals" Zento's travel blog entry: "This Sunday's stop was the old city of Segovia. I had been here before once with my Dad when I was 11 years old and I had a few vague memories. Like the medieval tavern-like restaurant with a front view of the Roman Aqueduct where he ordered suckling pig and I refused to eat it because I was so sad for the baby pig. He made me eat it anyway and I loved it. This time, Mom, Dad, Sophie, Ed and I went together to relive my old fading memories. Our first stop was the Palacio Real de la Granja de San Ildefonso. This was the summer palace for the Spanish monarchs of the 18th century. We didn't actually go in the palace as we decided to take the time to visit the gardens which were much more attractive. White marble statues and Neoclassical vases adorned the main gardens together with the beds of perfectly selected flowers. The gardens were a never-ending maze of avenues leading to dazzling pompous fountains with lead statues painted with auburn bronze-like paint. Unfortunately all of the fountains were turned off; since they use up too much water, they are made functional only three times a year. All of the fountains were dedicated to some pagan god or goddess, or mythical figures and animals such as Poseidon, Diana, Apollo, Andromeda, Saturn, dragons in half moons, cherubs riding swans, dolphins spewing water ...

GEORGE MINNE was a Belgian artist and sculptor famous for his idealized depictions of man's inner spiritual conflicts. A contemporary of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, Minne shows many similarities in both form and subject matter to the Viennese Secessionists, the fathers of Art Nouveau. Minne trained at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, then in the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels from 1895 through 1899, and in 1891 was elected a member of the arts group Les XX. His most famous works are the "Kneeling Youth" series of sculptures, including "The Fountain of Kneeling Youths", a bronze-cast fountain in his home town of Ghent (the Marble originals are at the Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany), as well as various smaller sculptures in private and museum holdings, such as the pair of "Kneeling Youths" at the Neue Galerie in New York City.

A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Bologna, Italy by TravelPod blogger Carriejustin titled "Gotta love that Bolognese Sauce" Carriejustin's travel blog entry: "We only had about a day and a half to spend in Bologna but it was well worth it to be able to see the red buildings and eat the rich foods. Bologna is known as La Grassa (The Fat) not because the people are fat OH NO but because of the food and how wonderfully rich it is. We found it hard to discover the real city when our only full day was on Sunday, and as we are sure you must know Italy shuts down on Sundays. We decided we would have to come back to see and taste the real city sometime soon." Read and see more at: www.travelpod.com Photos from this trip: 1. "Bologna Sidewalk" 2.

To get Brokeback Fountain, use Rugged Jarvis to take any male character for a dip in the hot tub. Then take him deep inside the Heiny Mine in Fail Village This is a bronze DLC trophy from Qelqoth of the Oochmasters clan. Rugged Jarvis was feeling a little wild, and he picked Jeff as his male playmate. He pulled him into the snow blower, which flung them into a lamp. They were electrocuted and thrown onto the ski jump. After sliding on the ice Jeff & Jarvis were getting cold, so Jarvis ooched them onto the geyser opening. Jarvis changed hands to get things going again, and the geyser erupted. How romantic! They soared among the clouds together, landing on Bikini Chick in the hot tub. Jeff & Jarvis got another liquid explosion, and flew across the village to the Heiny Mine. Jarvis took Jeff deep inside the Heiny, then the cart tipped and Jarvis lost his grasp on Jeff. Pity, really, they made a cute couple.

Construction of the buildings in the square commenced in 1815 in the Italian style. The tram turns to the east at the Massena fountain, which rises and falls from its basin, surrounded by four bronze horses.
