    Post A few days in Italy - a Pictorial TR

    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!!!


    The Rialto bridge


    Feeding the birds in St Mark's Square


    Myself and the Campanille


    The view from the top of the Campanille


    The bridge of sighs


    We took a high speed train to Florence


    Myself with Michelangelo's David (copy)


    The Ponte Vecchio


    At the Florence Disney Store ... The Birth of Venus - Disney Style


    Yours truly at the Duomo


    The view from our hotel


    We took a Segway tour and passed by Gepetto's Store






    In Rome, myself with Bernini's Fountain in Piazza Navona


    Myself at the Spanish Steps


    The best place for gelato in Rome


    The Tiber River in Rome


    My favorite room in the Vatican Museum


    Michelangelo's Pieta


    Myself at St Peter's


    Cute Disney bags


    The Roman Forum


    The Colloseum


    Your truly in the Colloseum


    The monument to Victorio Emmanuel



    The Disney Store had very few unique items to Italy. One of these was "Gladiator Donald." I bought one and he showed me around his old haunts ...



    At the Pantheon


    The Roman Forum




    At the Colloseum


    Inside the Colloseum




    He also found some buddies of his


    Who fought in classic Gladiator style!

    Thank you. The A380 was great. Very comfortable, quiet and smooth. This aircraft had a feature that showed the flight on the screen from a camera mounted on the tail, which was great to watch.

    Thanks for the photos!! I'm going to Italy in less than a year and am so excited. I've been on an Italian high lately trying to learn basic phrases and drinking cappuccinos.
