Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps

Trevi Fountain So the day before we came here with beautiful water flowing from the fountain, we stumbled upon it while it was being cleaned.  Alas no water. We were a bit disappointed but understood that something this beautiful must be maintained.  However the next day after we saw the Pantheon, we found that the […]

Herculaneum is just as cool as Pompeii.. maybe even a little more awesome…

Polignano A Mare…

Polignano A Mare.. a walk thru town Walking through town, I took a picture with a nice Nonno (grandpa).  He looks confused, well, because he probably was.  I sort of ran up to him and asked to take a picture with him.  What could he say?  I was fast and thankful.  I was trying to […]

A day in San Marino

A beautiful day in San Marino Looking forward to a wonderful day in San Marino was on the “to do” list for us.  Lots of driving we have been doing so far in Italy, so it feels good to stop and “smell the roses”, per se.  Planning out our day was easy.  The castle, some […]
