Ravens etc
Beautiful pictures and I agree with you—-the best way to enjoy Italy is slowly!

Italy is pure joy
I hate when I think of the weight I gained while traveling but the foods were amazing. Slow going is the way to enjoy Italy. We saw some amazing things. MJ

Italy
Even reading about touring the canals and streets of Northern Italy puts us in a better mood. Of course not as good as if we were there in person. Put us down as jealous! Shopping and cooking at home in is the way to go. We can't wait to get back!

Lovely blog full of aromas and ambient images Dave & MJ...but there was something missing. This was after we departed company in Armenia...and we were no longer with you!!!

Ravenna and Venice
Nothing was the same without you. Every church we looked at we longed for you. Let us know when you want to meet us there. Next trip we hope to do southern Italy. Missing you and Denise. Let’s chat soon.

Under siege
Poor Venice, sinking into the water and now sinking under cruise ship hordes. On our first day there, we really struggled with Venice until the wave upon wave of pushy cruise ship people with their oversized golf umbrellas went back to their ships for dinner. We found ways to work around them, but really felt under siege...so I totally understand how annoyed the locals feel. Keep those food photos coming! :)

Jumping on the crowd wagon
Not to speak ill of crowds, but I am so glad you were able to find some quiet time and appreciate the beauty that Venice has to offer. Your blog was beautiful, but as always, it is the food pictures that draw me in. What a wonderful time you had.

Loved Venice
Venice is one of the more scenic cities in the world. The canals are amazing. it was interesting to watch everything in the world on boats... garbage collection, cement trucks etc. You must go to Ravenna and Verona.... lovely.

Three Italian City Gems
Indeed, three very contrasting cities, very interesting to read about. Italy just astounds me in the amount of history and beauty which constantly surrounds the visitor. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it at a slow pace :)

I agree that Italy is astounding in history and beauty. The local embrace life and that is contagious. Each village takes on its own personality and sense of pride. A great country to visit.

Good old Italy!
Great blog DMJ. It reminded my trip to Venice...water taxis and attractions exactly the way you have described. Never been to Ravenna or Verona. But I am putting them to my bucket list. Hope more to come from your travel!

Good old Italy
