“It was a quiet summer afternoon in Venice, so I retreated to
the shadow to admire the scenery and have some wine.”
by Maximilian Grigori, Arlington, Virginia, USA



“Wonderful, colourful Burano is a day trip to colour heaven. As a colour therapist, it is a dream. Anyone who has a love of colour and simplicity must visit. Just 45 minutes from Venice.”
by Kerry Governato


limone, garda

“Sunny Easter Sunday morning in Limone, Lake Garda.”
by Oldrich Poul, Novy Jicin, Czech Republic



“After 25 hours of flying from Tasmania, this was our first magical night in Verona.”
by Sally Wiltshire



“I thought your readers might like this photo. It’s from the upper walk around Castello Di Brolio in the southern Chianti area of Tuscany, where the recipe for making Chianti Classico was invented. Well worth a visit, and the wine tasting after gives you the chance to sample some great examples of that style of Chianti.”
by Boyd Calder


ragusa, sicily

“Being a great fan of Montalbano, I visited Ragusa but wandered away from the busy streets and main square and found some interesting alleyways and buildings.”
by Veronica Lisle, Amble
