Adventures in Italy


In November 1995, David visited the Milan (Milano) and Rome (Roma) areas in Italy on a business trip. In February 1996, he returned to the Milan area for a second business trip. Anne came along and explored the Arona area while David was at the work. After the work was complete, we visited Florence (Firenze), Grosseto, Siena and Venice (Venezia). As one might notice from the pictures below, while we enjoyed all of Italy, we truely fell in love with Venice.
