Picture Postcards From Italy 2015

We are back from our whirlwind trip around Italy! We traveled for 10 days and saw so much! Each day we viewed a new treasure (or two!), walked for miles and ate like kings.  And boy did we sleep well every night!
I took a zillion photos (as I always do!) and I have been sifting through them for the last 24 hours.  I will probably write some posts in the coming weeks that will explain further all that we have seen, but for today I have picked 10 photos, each representing one day of our trip. 
So without further ado....
The fountain in the beautiful town of Assisi.

The colourful fisherman homes on the Venetian island of Burano.

An interesting pedestrian road in the small city of Ferrara with its cathedral tower in the background.

A chapel ceiling in Santa Croce Church,  Florence.

The view from our Lake Cruise on Lake Como.

A doorway on the Cathedral at Pisa.

Ancient walls and walkways inside the Colosseum in Rome.

Thousands of sunbathers from above in Sorrento.

Two of the amazing statues in the Vatican Museum, Vatican City.

One of the historical palazzos along the Grand Canal, Venice.

There you go - just a little taste. 
I am looking forward to digging through my pictures in more detail and sharing more of them with you.  My jet-lag is waning (thankfully!) and I am almost caught up on laundry so hopefully I will be able to play with my pictures a few more times this week.
Any requests about which city you would like to see first??

Bye for now,



  1. Wow, what amazing photos! I'm glad to hear everyone had a wonderful time. Any city is good with me; I love looking at pictures of people's travels!

  2. Wow! And WoW! These photos are incredible! What an amazing trip! I never thanked you for visiting my blog three weeks ago (I guess before you left) and would like to do so now. I enjoyed this post very much! The architecture, the art, the scenery...all wonderful! And that street withe the cute!

  3. Dearest Bronwyn, I have lived three years in Itay, in Ferrara and I love this country like my own. I'm sure you have the happiest holidays ever! I'm also here to thank you for all your kind comments on my blog. I'm taking a little break and will be back at the end of summer.
    Until then

  4. Oh my...these are just gorgeous! I'm glad to hear you had a lovely time and look forward to seeing more photos. I am hoping to visit Venice after Christmas, so my request would be Venice although it really doesn't matter to me. I will be viewing them all! Have a lovely week.

  5. So beautiful!!!! I am so glad that you had such a great time!!! Looking forward to hearing more about it in the coming weeks. xx

  6. Hi Bronwyn, I am so stinkin' jealous of that trip to Italy! It is great that you took so many photos and are sharing some. I've missed your blogging while you were away but am glad you had a fabulous time! I didn't participate in this week's Five on Friday but am still making the rounds to say hi!
    Hugs and rest up from that jet lag!

  7. Wow, such amazing, vivid pictures! You've made me want to go to Italy so badly. You certainly packed a lot in to your ten days. x

  8. It looks gorgeous, all that colour :) So pleased you both had a great time and I can't wait to hear more about it.

    Love Gem x x
