The colorful vintage / retro look is very appealing to collectors and are quite the conversation piece. Some have a vintage patina and some look like they are brand new even if they are over 50 or 60 years old. They are wearable postcards and miniature works of art. Women documented their travels by collecting a souvenir shield charm depicting the town or country coat of arms crest, a scenic picture of the area, castles, a famous landmark (Eiffel Tower), building (White House), person from history (Mozart) or an event (Olympics). These charms were often given to women as gifts from their men who were traveling abroad. Verona, Italy - Roman Forum and Bell Tower Verona, in the Veneto region of north-east Italy, is one of Italy's loveliest towns, famous for its summer opera season. This has been a thriving and successful town for most of its history, and today smart shops and cafes fill the attractive medieval lanes of the historic centre. Verona is a popular day-trip destination from Lake Garda, and an appealing destination for weekend breaks or longer stays. There's a lot to see here, from Roman ruins to the so-called 'Juliet's balcony', and the town is also well-connected for exploring the surrounding area, including destinations like Lake Garda, Vicenza, Padua and Venice. Verona was an important Roman town and is rich in archaeological sites. The Roman Arena, where concerts and operas are now performed in the summer, is the city's grandest sight, but you can spend a long time simply exploring the narrow streets lined with palazzi that make up the historic centre. There's also a mini-train tour if you're feeling lazy. The town's museums and churches contain fine works of art, while the ruined Teatro Romano over the river has excellent views from the terraces where the ancients watched plays. Verona is a city and provincial capital in Veneto, Northern Italy. The ancient town and the center of the modern city are in a loop of the Adige River near Lake Garda. Because of this position, the areas saw regular floodings until 1956, when the Mori-Torbole tunnel was constructed, providing 500 cubic meters of discharge from the Adige river to Lake Garda when there was danger of flooding. The tunnel reduced the risk of flooding from once every seventy years to once every two centuries. spacer type="block" height="1" width="1" eCharmony Vintage Enamel Travel Shield Charms Italy Vintage Silver Enamel Souvenir Travel Shield Charms Bari, Italy - Coat of Arms Bari, Italy - Ship Bologna, Italy - Coat of Arms Bologna, Italy - Two Medieval Towers Catania, Italy - Coat of Arms Catania, Sicily, Italy - Piazza Duomo Firenze, Italy - Campanile di Giotto Firenze, Italy - Duomo Campanile Giotto Firenze, Italy - Florentine Lily Firenze, Italy - Palazzo Vechio Firenze, Italy - Palazzo Vechio Firenze, Italy - Ponte Vecchio Genova, Italy - Coat of Arms Genova, Italy - La Lanterna Lighthouse Genova, Italy - Piazzo di Ferrari Fountain Gerona, Catalonia, Spain - Messina, Italy - Coat of Arms Messina, Italy - Port Protectress Milano Marittima, Italy Milano, Italy - Coat of Arms Milano, Italy - Coat of Arms Milano, Italy - Downtown Milano, Italy - Duomo Milano, Italy - Duomo Napoli, Italy - Naples Bay Vesuvius Palermo, Italy - Coat of Arms Roma, Italy - 1960 Olympics Roma, Italy - 1960 Olympics Roma, Italy - 1960 Olympics Roma, Italy - 1960 Olympics Roma, Italy - Colosseum Roma, Italy - Forum Arch of Constantine Roma, Italy - Forum Arch of Constantine Roma, Italy - San Pietro Roma, Italy - She Wolf, Remus Romulus Roma, Italy - She Wolf, Remus Romulus Roma, Italy - SPQR (Motto of Rome) Roma, Italy - Trevi Fountain Roma, Italy - Trinita dei Monti Spanish Steps Sorrento, Italy - Coat of Arms Torino, Italy - Basilica of Superga Torino, Italy - Coat of Arms Torino, Italy - Mole Antonelliana Torino, Italy - Mole Antonelliana Torino, Italy - Valentino Castle Trieste, Italy - Trieste, Italy - Coat of Arms Trieste, Italy - The Castle of Miramare.
