We spent the first 2 weeks of June in Italy. We've never been there, so we went a little crazy with pictures. If you're really interested, I have more on my Facebook page. And if you're REALLY interested, come on over for a slide show of all 650. Seriously. And each one has a story. I'll make dinner & set up the guest room.
This is a typical street corner in Rome. No, it's not leading into any famous church or museum. We could have spent all day (& did) just walking through the tiny, winding streets & looking at the architecture. Bellissimo!
The Colosseum & Trevi Fountain:
Of course, we had to hang out on the Spanish Steps in our cool Italian shades.
Then we drove through Tuscany, visiting Florence & Pisa, and many beautiful tiny walled villages in between. We also visited Lake Garda, where we took a boat ride around the lovely town of Sirmione.
We stayed with about the nicest innkeepers in the world outside of Verona & ended our trip in bella Venezia.
We ended our trip with a romantic gondola ride thru the canals of Venice. I can only say that our cat is glad we're home. We're not so sure.
