Discovering Beautiful Italy

Well we all know Italy is beautiful...don't we? Thing is whenever I meet people I am amazed how many think that all of Italy looks like Under the Tuscan Sun.

Well some of it obviously does but what most people don't realise is that there are a kaleidoscope of colorful landscapes, each one completely different to the next.

Spend a morning wandering through villages of golden brown stone, surrounded by rolling hills of sunflowers, and in the afternoon ski down huge alpine peaks amidst landscapes and villages most would associate with Switzerland.

That is just a taste of the variety; there is so much more. Beaches of Caribbean beauty, small towns with white-washed cottages under scorching azure skies... it is way easier to show you than to tell you. Thanks to Christine Clouse, one of our little Facebook community, that is possible.

Christine has shared some incredibly lovely photos of her journeys around Italy over the last few years. There are a lot of them so please be a little patient if they are slow to load -  I'm sure you'll find it worth the wait.

Remember too that if you enjoy them it would be great if you could click like below and feel free to share them.

Lastly if you are travelling to Italy, or anywhere else for that matter, Maria and I would love your support. It won't cost you a cent and in fact it will save you money on your next trip with the cheapest accommodation prices available. Here's how you can help for FREE.
