Stresa, Venice, Fierenze, Sienna, Rome, Milan

A fIn 2004, we took a 16 day trip to Italy. There were six in the group so we could rely on public transportation and had very good hotel accommodations.  No tour buses, only Eurostar.  We visited Stresa in Northern Italy, stayed 3 days in Venice, went on to Florence, took a day trip to Rome, a side trip to Sienna, and finished in Milan, which is where we had entered the country.  I had intended the Italy photographs to be mixed in on the Gallery Page.  After looking at them and culling out this sample, I realized that this wouldn't work.  They are unique enough in look and purpose to stand alone in their own space. The scenery and architecture dictate they should remain separate.  My thinking when I took these pictures was much different that it would be if I returned to Italy today.  It was a fine trip, and I wish I could go again to see the rest of the country.  It is marvelous, and the food is excellent.
