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.
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
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
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!
