As you may know, I recently returned from a week in Italy (Venice, Florence and Rome). This trip was on my own and not done with any tour company, although we did do some day tours.
I'd like to share some of my photos with you. I hope you enjoy them.
We flew from Miami to Venice via JFK and Paris so that I could fly on the A380.
This was a seat in Air France's La Premiere class
Love the mood lighting on the plane.
Venice had lots of interesting buildings and bridges
Our hotel was right on the lagoon - great location.
We got to see a Costa Cruise Liner sail out of port
Lots of pretty canals
I had to visit the Disney Store!!!
