Italy

   

  Photos from a trip to Italy in May 2010.  The heart of this trip was a tour operated by European Castles Tours: Italian Highlights Rome, Florence and Venice.  I also had some time on my own south of Naples and in northern Italy.  There were rainy days, but the sun usually shone when I wanted it most.

The link to the Pictures File is below the Sample Images.  A Route Map and a Table of Contents are provided below that, both in on-screen and in printable forms.

Route Map

The tour started in Rome, with highlights visits and an out-of-town excursion to Tivoli.  Assisi was a stop en route to Florence, home base for explorations of that city and the surrounding Tuscan hill towns.  Lido Island was the home base for the visits to Venice and the nearby islands.

I added explorations from Naples before the tour, to see Capri, the Amalfi Coast, and Pompeii, and some time in northern Italy after, to visit Stresa, Lake Maggiore, Cinque Terre, and Milan.

A package of printable maps is available if you wish paper copies to follow along. 
Italy 2010 Maps includes the route map shown below and more detailed maps of southern and northern destinations.
