Welcome to another gallery of glorious photos from Italy – all of them captured by Italia! readers for our monthly competition…

This month’s winner: 

Susa, Piedmont

“Strolling through the beautiful historic town of Susa, Piedmont, we were taken by surprise when a herd of donkeys came careering down the main shopping street towards us. They were eventually captured after some locals enticed them with apples.”
