Corner gelato shops are as ubiquitous in Italy as Starbucks cafés are in America.
Art, history, food, fashion, and culture; Italy has something for everyone. I’ve written about my experiences in Venice and Florence, and will undoubtedly go into further detail about the Vatican and Rome later. Below, I’ve chosen one representative photograph from each stop on my tour of Italy.
As Venice is comprised of over 100 islands connected by bridges, walking and gondola rides are the most common modes of transportation.
From this vantage point at Michelangelo Square, you can see Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, and Florence Cathedral.
Piazza del Duomo contains the Pisa Baptistry, Pisa Cathedral, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
One of my favorite sculptures, Laocoön and His Sons, on display at the Vatican Museums.
The view inside the Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre.
Seriously – gelato is everywhere in Italy, and it’s amazing!
