A Year in Italy

Someone posted a great video on The video features a rapid-fire slideshow of an entire year’s worth of photos taken in Italy. On the itinerary (at least in the first few minutes) are the Colosseum, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, fruit vendors in various piazze, cupolas, cobblestones, and more. There are more than nine minutes of Italy snapshots to give us the travel bug.

    A Year in Italy would be “Heaven”.
    I would go back to Florence, Milan, and Pisa. I would go to Venice and take lots of photo’s. Having an art background, I would visit all the museums that I missed the last time I was in Florence.
    Then take a train through Tuscany and head off to Rome.
    Rent a car and drive into the countryside with my camera.
    Heading south to the Amalfi coast and then to Naples. Then, I would go to Capri and spend some time there. I’ll definitely take my sketch pad and canvas.
    Would rent a sailboat and go sailing often.
    Of course, one cannot forget about the wonderful food and wine in Italy.
    I would spend some time in Sicily (Trapani) where my family is from.
    I would look into getting info on my family tree.
    The last time I was in Sicily, I met the most wonderful and hospitable people there in the small village where my mother grew up.
    That’s when I fell in love with Italy. I would also like to go to some of the smaller islands off the coast of Sicily, such as Lipari, and also visit Sardinia.
