Assisi – Rome – Venice

I have recently come back from Italy where I fall in love with local architecture, food and people. Actually, it was my first time in Italy and I hadn’t known what to expect before I traveled.

Before I continue writing, I just want to jot down that I did not take any pictures of Italian food because it was so good that you have to taste it. Pictures would be too provocative 🙂

Assisi

According to Wikipedia, Assisi was the birthplace of St. Francis, who founded the Franciscan religious order in the town in 1208, and St. Clare (Chiara d’Offreducci), the founder of the Poor Sisters, which later became the Order of Poor Clares after her death.

It is truly amazing place to visit – inspiring me to come back anytime I can. St. Francis Cathedral is massive with a beautiful view to the region. In other words, imagine olive trees with lovely Italian houses, and somewhere up the hill is a historic town breathing the Italian history showing all secrets of Italy – you cannot understand that here while reading this blog, you must feel it when in Assisi.

Rome

No Wikipedia needed here, we all know that all roads lead to Rome 🙂 I took pictures of some landmarks, a famous fountain and angel; and even a ‘just married’ couple in St. Peter Cathedral. Enjoy!

Venice

Raining, windy and still packed with tourists = my Venice experience. There were many photographers taking super nice pictures despite a horrible weather. I took this one on a boat from a railway station to St. Marco square. Just love it, it describes Venice to me.

Italy, like every other country, can have many faces. When you travel there, it really depends on what you wanna see and experience. There are tourist traps and joys. Even though the pictures are good, more important are memories – nobody can delete them, correct them or change them. Italy stays. If you can, please, visit Italy – it is really worth your time.
