Italy Escape (part 2)
I ran out of puff and patience last week. Below are some photo memories of my Italian Escape with my daughter last month – from Pistoia (very sad to leave) in Tuscany on.
Florence Duomo and the swallows were still flying . . .
there was plenty of gelato
The River Arno . . .
and David were exactly the same.
We arrived in Siena for Palio celebrations (horses and flags and handsome young men)
The whole of Siena was celebrating
and it was in Siena we did some tortoise-rescuing.
San Gimignano is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been
under the blue Tuscan sky looking from San Gimignano
and down to the Amalfi Coast
which took our breath away.
more times than we could count. (Looks like a painting, was snapped with my iphone)
Praiano . . . spectacular – the drivers were ‘spectacular’ too in a very different way!
Then all the way back up to Venice.
where gondolas crept by our window.
The bells still rang
That bridge is still sighing
Back to Milan where our Italian Escape began and her spectacular cathedral.
What a thrill to stand in front of la Rinascente the Milan/Italian Department store which won third place and Little Dog 2nd place in the World’s Best Store Window Campaign at a Department Store 2016
