Travel through Italy

It doesn't matter if you've travelled through Italy a hundred times or if you're still dreaming of your first visit; you'll never get tired of the beauty of the country.

So put your feet up, make yourself a cup of coffee and spend awhile wandering through our galleries.

All the galleries are made up of photos taken by me, my wife Maria or our community on Facebook. This particular collection was shared with us by Cristina Pal from Argentina.

Once you've seen these photos you can see our other Italian galleries here. While if Venetian canals, gondolas and all things Venice are your thing then Maria's Venice and the Veneto collection is the answer - click here to visit.

Remember too that you are welcome to share your photos with us on Facebook - we'd love it if you would! Last thing - please show Cristina your appreciation by clicking Like below

Ponte Vecchio, Florence

The Ponte Vecchio in Florence is one of Italy's most famous and beautiful bridges. The Rialto  bridge is another one and that is the next photo. Two others I absolutely adore though are the Bridge of Sighs in Venice and the Bassano Wooden Bridge (Ponte Degli Alpini).



The Rialto Bridge in Venice on a summer's day. Maria and I stayed at the most wonderful hotel just around the corner from here this summer - would you believe it was once the old post office! Click here to read more about it.

Visso Marche

Visso is a quaint little village in the Sibillini Mountains of Le Marche. Hardly any tourists ever make it to this wonderfully isolated corner. To find it on a map you can zoom in on the one on our San Ginesio page . You'll see it lies about 10 kilometres to the southwest of San Ginesio.
