There are so many interesting signs in Italy I thought I would share some favorites from my visit last spring. They were all very helpful.
I’ve been thinking about souvenirs lately. But some things don’t last and are not actual souvenirs unless I’ve taken a picture. This would include gelato. Chocolate is another thing that doesn’t last but I can only consider one irresistible treat at a time.
Large crowds are to be expected in Venice. St. Mark’s Square is full of people taking pictures, waiting in various lines, shopping and sitting at tables eating a meal. There are pigeons too. But it’s really simple to escape the crowds and discover interesting places that are worth finding. When I walk near the water a gondola or small boat might drift by, which makes the scene even more memorable.
It was during the spring that I had the opportunity to travel to Verona. From an arena to an outdoor market there are lots of interesting places. In addition there is the possibility of leaving a letter for Juliet that just might get a response. And of course visiting her balcony is a must. These are some of my favorite scenes from Verona.
When I was in Assisi, Italy I found many examples of scenes that were framed by arches or windows. Here are some of the places I admired the most.
When I was in Rome I climbed the steps of St. Peter’s Basilica to the top for a view of the city. Along the way I stopped and saw these tiles. After taking a picture of one of the scenes I thought it would be interesting to focus on one of the corners to show the tiles in detail.
Speaking of bridges, there are many beautiful ones in Venice, Italy. From the famous (Rialto Bridge and the Bridge of Sighs) to a simple footbridge in Burano, you can enjoy them all!
A walk in Venice sounds nice…
