alghero wedding

“We got married in Alghero, one of our favourite places in Italy. Here we are being piped through the old town. We also think it would be fabulous if you did a wedding feature on Brits who got married in Italy. Just an idea!”
by Kayleigh Love

More of our favourites this month…

fiat in italy

“I spotted this old Fiat at Costano, Umbria. It certainly makes an unusual garden feature!”
by Peter Colligan, Waterlooville


italy sunset

“I was pleased to see Lake Trasimeno get a mention on page 11 of your November issue. It is beautiful there, but many people only know about the northern Italian lakes. We particularly like the small town of San Feliciano on the southeastern shore. Its position there means there are some fantastic sunsets during the summer. I hope you like the attached example.”
by Richard Patterson, Ridgmont


bardini gardens, florence

“It was an absolute privilege to walk through an archway encompassed in lush green vegetation at the Bardini Gardens in Florence late spring.”
by Ken Cheung, Toronto, Canada


bees' fountain, rome

“This Fontana delle Api (Bees’ Fountain) can be found just off Rome’s Piazza Barberini. The inscription tells us that Urban VIII Pontifex Maximus had this little fountain built in 1644 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.”
by Steve Burkett, Centennial, Colorado, USA


“Florence. Ponte Vecchio sunset and nightly street concert.”
by Timothy J McGinty, Cleveland, Ohio, USA
