In late 2005, a few months after Hurricane Katrina, I came to Italy for a fresh start of my life. While living here, I’ve been to many parts of Italy, but not all. It’s always the way: you don’t see the sites where you live. Still, I have gone to many cities and towns in Italy. Below are links to albums containing photos of some of my outings.
I’ve lived in Milan for nearly twenty years. So I have many photos from the city, grouped in several albums based on sites and neighborhoods. Therefore, I’ve put the link to this city near the top of the page.
Valle d’Aosta is a region of northwest Italy on the border by France and Switzerland. It’s located by western part of the Alps, where you can see the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso.
Bergamo is north east of Milan. Located up quite a climb is the older district, called Città Alta (i.e., Upper City). It has cobblestone streets and is surrounded by Venetian walls. The Duomo di Bergamo, the Romanesque Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, and the grand Cappella Colleoni can be found in this section.
Torino is the capital city of the Piemonte region in northern Italy next to the Alps. Known for the iconic spire of the Mole Antonelliana, it also has many baroque buildings along boulevards and grand squares, such as Piazza Castello.
