Sam's Exotic Travels: Italy

Our tour started in Rome, arriving early morning after an overnight flight from Hong Kong.  After stops at The Vatican, the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain we took the bus to the outskirts of Prato, where we spent the night.

Our tour started in Rome, arriving early morning after an overnight flight from Hong Kong.  After stops at The Vatican, the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain we took the bus to the outskirts of Prato, where we spent the night. 

The second day we drove to Venice for four hours of sightseeing (by skipping the tour of the glass-making factory, but taking the optional gondola ride), then on to the outskirts of Verona.  No picture opportunities there as we arrived late, stayed in a commercial zone near the interstate and left early the next morning.

The third day we continued north to Milan where we had three hours of free time (including lunch) before the long ride to Lucerne. As the albums attest, I was able to cram as much sightseeing and picture taking opportunities in what time we had as humanly possible. 

Check out the following city links to learn more and see the photo albums:

  •  Rome - Rome is a heady blend of artistic and architectural masterpieces, classical ruins, and extravagant baroque churches and piazzas.

  •  Prato - My pictures, taken early in the morning near our hotel on the outskirts of town, is an attempt to capture a sense of daily life in a small Tuscan Italian neighborhood.

  •  Venice - Entirely built on water, Venice is unique in all the world.  A city renowned in the Renaissance for its artists' rendering of color, it is full of secrets, grace and charm.

  •  Milan - Milan is Italy's business hub and crucible of chic. It is the country's most populous and prosperous city, serving as the capital of commerce, finance, fashion, and media.
