The Volkswagen Beetle is arguably one of the most famous cars of all time. The production of the iconic car began in 1938 and ended in 2003, with more than 21 million units built.

The iconic “Bug” is loved by people all around the globe. As the first model built by Volkswagen, it was designed by Ferdinand Porsche as a car affordable for everyone. The last car was produced in Mexico in 2003 and was directly delivered to the VW museum in Wolfsburg, Germany. Over the course of its production, many owners have customized and created unique examples of this great car, but perhaps none is as unique or extraordinary as the Vochol, a Beetle decorated with more than 2 million glass beads.

Oh, I adore that! It reminds me of the Galla Placidia Mausoleum in Ravenna!

I must admit to have googled this place, as I hadn't heard of it before. Very interesting.

It's a fabulous building. Dad and I visited it on our last trip to Italy. He loved it, and I'm so glad we were able to share it.
