Images of Italy, revisited

Over the years we've had the great good fortune to see much of that incredible peninsula called Italy. We've driven the length of the boot and crossed the straits of Messina to Sicily and then back and all the way up to Lago Orta in the Piemonte. The incredible things we have seen would fill a book or two and I'd like to share a few images of those places with you.

May they inspire to go and make your stories. . .
