Gallery Italy

My "Gallery Italy" page contains some magnificent photos of Italy, evocative and beautiful, these photos capture the ephemeral quality of Italy.

These images of Italy are by Karl Baer, Nicholas Baumgartner, Greg Little and others. I hope you enjoy them.

Please be a little patient with this page; because the photos are quite large it can take a little while to load. Its worth the wait! 

Rather look at photos of stunning beaches? These photos taken in Sardinia are absolutely amazing!

Tuscany

Jo is one of the many friends on our Facebook page who has kindly shared photos with us. The photos below were taken in Cetona, which is a little town to the south of Siena.

Please click like below to share your appreciation and it would be great if you could add a comment at the bottom of the page too.

Umbria

These photos too, like those of Tuscany above, were taken by Jo. Umbria is one of the loveliest of all Italian regions, as lovely as Tuscany but without all the tourists.

Milan (Milano)

When it comes to shopping Milan is wonderful. Have a look at our Shopping in Milan guide for some ideas.

Milan is definitely not one of my favorite cities in Italy but it does have some lovely areas in the older part of the city - this arcade is one of the loveliest.
