Scrapbook: Italia


- The Unique City of Venice -

- Florence and the overpowering presence of the Duomo -

 - The Ancient Delights of Rome -

A few weeks ago I went to Italy and did the typical tourist trail of Venice, Florence and Rome, all cities that I've been wanting to visit for a very long time.  There are so many things that I love about the country; the dynamic nature of the people, the gorgeous food (the gelato is incredible) and the beautiful architecture.    A few of my highlights from the trip included; live opera next to the pantheon, a trip to a Rome flea market (I came home with a large bag of bargains), sitting by the Trevi fountain and getting lost in the maze of Venice's backstreets.

Girl your pictures are A ton better then mine when i went, crazy we have some pictures in the same places though in Rome! I guess it's not that crazy, but it's always crazy to think, wow we saw the same old stuff in Rome! I can't wait to go back to other parts of Italy.
