Although I have often been in Milan since October 2005, I haven’t visited very many other places in Italy—not enough as I should have. It seems very common to overlook that which is close to us. However, I have been trying to get myself to do much more sightseeing lately. In recent months, I have mostly hit cities in the north since they're closest to Milan. There’s plenty to see in Lombardia and neighboring regions. These are the albums from those outings.
Since I have so many photographs taken within Milan, those are in a separate album group just on Milan. Since Sicily is where my family lives, visits there are special and therefore I put photos from those trips in a separate album just for Sicily.
Through the coaxing of a colleague, I've finally visited Rome. I went to all of the big tourists spots: the ruins, the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Trevi fountain and several other places.
Even though Milan is close to Tuscany, I've only gone there for very short visits. I've been to Florence twice, but only a couple of hours each time. This album contains photos from Firenze, Pisa, and Siena.
Veneto is a region in the north-east of Italy, east of Lombardia. The capital is the famous Venice.
Milan is located in the region of Lombadia. I've begun to explore some of the other cities and towns of this northern region with its well known lake towns like Como.
This album contains sub-albums of photographs from trips to Naples and Sorrento.
Trip to Canosa di Puglia, located in southern Italy in the region of Puglia.
Piedmont is a region of Italy, located in the north-west corner of the country on the mainland—at the borders of France and Switzerland, but not quite touching the coast on the south side of the region. It’ a fairly mountaineous region. The people speak Italian and some speak French. The capital is Torino (Turin in English).
The region of Emilia-Romagna is a small one south of the region of Lombardia. It has only a few large cities to visit: Bologna, Parma. So far, I’ve only changed trains in Bologna and visited Parma. However, I hope to take in more of this region over the next few months—and then add plenty more photos to this album group.
Aosta Valley, or Val d’Aosta is a mountainous semi-autonomous region of Italy, located in the north west part of Italy. It’s on the border of France and Switzerland. Aosta a small region, separated from the rest of Italy by the region of Piedmont. So far I’ve only visited the very small town of Bard where there’s fortress built high on the mountain.
The region of Liguria is located south of Milan and northwest of Florence. It's a small region that wraps the coast and reaches as far west as France.
