Agreed, very beautiful scenery indeed. The brighter wall colours (sandstone?) make it, as well as the verdigris roofs, really bright. And my first thought before I read the posts, was indeed "kinda italian". So you definitely hit that. As the picture is a bit small, it seems that there is a bit of foliage on the ground, or is it grass? And is it ivy on the fence or something else? I think with both there would be an interesting look of decay and oblivion.
