More Italy Trip Photos

My travel partner in Italy, J, has finally returned from backpacking across Europe. He kindly sent me his pictures from our time together. Thank you J! Here are the anonymous ones...

I'm well into a scrapbook of sorts for all the prints, postcards and ticket stubs; more details to come.



Verona

the view out our hotel room window in Verona

the view if you leaned out the window and looked left, towards Piazza Erbe

the Arena, a Roman ruin still used today; used to be 50% taller with these arches

workers were building a stage inside the Arena

view of Piazza Bra from the top of the Arena



Venice

 nocturnal view of the Grand Canal from the Rialto Bridge

 Venice is known for masterful Carnival masks and Murano glass

 lunch in the piazza

 pizza margherita, so good! I forgot to take a picture before I started eating!

 Piazza San Marco with St. Mark's Basilica and Bell Tower 

 detail of the Campanile

 St. Mark's

 Doge's Palace

 detail of sculptural decoration on St. Mark's

 astrological signs on this public calendar in Piazza San Marco

 my dinner, (very much like) filet mignon with various vegetables

 fancy hot chocolate at Caffe Florian on St. Mark's Square

 the Rialto bridge from the vaporetto (waterbus)

 on the waterbus to the train station to depart, the sun finally came out!

Ca' d'Oro, I love it for the quatrefoils!

 a gondola
