A Lovely Holiday to Italy

Last week I went on holiday with my parents and my sister to Italy (as usual my Mum managed to blog about it first - you can read what she wrote here).  I personally took about 450 photos, Mum took about 300 and Eve was taking photos on her phone too but I'll only show you a few.

We were based at Lake Garda in a little town called Malcesine but because it was a tour we had day trips arranged for us to Venice, Verona, and the Dolomites as well as a full day exploring different towns on the lake itself.

Around Lake Garda:
These photos are from our tour around the lake and our walks along the lake to the town of Malcesine

It was lovely to see Venice again but because of the nice weather (and being tourist season) it was much busier than when Rob and I visited

St Mark's Square

The Dolomites:
These photos are taken at the top of the Pordoi Pass where there was 8 inches of snow the night before we visited and it was still snowing while we were there

We didn't know what to expect from Verona - apart from Juliet's balcony - but the city was very picturesque with lots of interesting history.
