This statue is fixed on the large pedestal and is made out of bronze. It is decorated with the replicas of allegorical statues that depict day, night, dusk and dawn.

      Memorable Holidays left no stone unturned to make our holiday memorable for life. From the right advice while drafting the itinerary to last minute bookings since our visas were delayed, the support was very good. Krishna recommended the right tours and the hotels selected had excellent location. Had a lot of fun. Italy was wonderful and we felt that it deserves a vacation on its own with a minimum of 3 days in Rome and a visit to the Amalfi Coast

    • Trip to Europe

      Hello Team Memorable, I visited to Europe trip organised by Memorable trip majorly Krishna, It was fully customized. trip was of 11 days in which I covered Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice), Swiss (Zurich, Interlaken, Geneva, Lucerne) & France (Paris). Trip was good with little ups and downs. Thank you so much for organizing the trip and being always available for the query during trip. I really like the availability for the staff to clarify me the things whenever needed. ​ Only thing which I did not liked was of Paris hotel. Location was good but somehow room quality was not satisfactory. In future, I will surely go with Memorable, I also recommend same to try this once. Big Kudos to team Memorable.!!
