Italy 

 

Bologna    Lucca    Florence    Venice    Rome

 

I have been to Italy a number of times. First as a student of art history, backpacking across Europe, and visiting tiny cities with gems of the great wealth or Italian art. Decades went by before the winter of 1999 featured a visit to Italy, starting in  Bologna. We were there for the Christmas season, and arrived at the Rome airport a few weeks before Christmas. We navigated our way into Rome's train station, then back out again on our way to Bologna. We passed through the snowy Alps, and after a while arrived in Bologna. It was quite a nice city, with a beautiful Renaissance Cathedral, along with a Romanesque complex as well. I was very attracted to the complex, with it's quite courtyard and ancient halls.

Most recently I returned to Venice again, to spend a delightful weekend in Venice.
