In went to Italy with my friends Ann and John for a month in 2007. We landed in Rome and spent a few days there, then headed to a small mountain town in the Northern part of Tuscany to visit with my friends Ina and Howard, who own a villa in Viano. While there, we explored the towns in the area, then headed to Venice, where Ann and John left for home. I returned to Viano for another two weeks. A really fantastic experience and a great photo opportunity.
While in Rome, we took a tour of the Vatican. A really beautiful experience and some amazing art.
