Postcards from Italy

Postcards from a much too-short trip to Italy a couple of weeks ago that bring up so many wonderful memories. Italy still remains my favourite European destination: its history, art, food, scenery and people are unsurpassed for me. Cannot wait to go back for more in some not too distant future!

First up was Verona and Valpolicella wine region, followed by brief taste of Dolomites for a little bit of nature and hiking, and finished off with a couple of days of Venetian opulence.
