What I Love About Italy

Where do I start? There are so many reasons I love Italy, and if you have been following my blog you probably know most of them. The people, the little villages built into the hillsides, the architecture, the art, the food, the way I feel at home there, the wine, the narrow winding alleys. I could go on and on.

To quote a cliché a picture is worth a thousand words so enjoy a few of the reasons I love Italy through my photographs.
