In the midst of all the sadness, these pictures bring joy and hope. Here are some of my fond memories.

Cherthor, those are so lovely! Thank you. I've been to the Dolomites but my pictures don't hold a candle to yours. How fabulous. It is hard not to cry.

FORZA!!

A city known for its canals and reflections.

Venezia---who could not fall in love with it?

Have you heard? The canals are just now crystal clear for the first time in ages--one can see to the bottom. All due to the lack of cruise ships.

For all of us who may be concerned about loved ones these days.

Ponte Fodorio.

Thx all for kind words. The irony here is that I still cannot get my best Italy/Venice highlites to upload from LightRoom (sound of hammer smashing equipment). Dunno what prob is. Sigh...
Isabel, we were Amalfi Coast-bound prior to the virus, so your opening shots are special for those of us who had to cancel.
Danon, that Monti bakery...Serpenti, no?

I am done. But not really.

YES ! I stayed just a block away. It was in Rome 5-6 time before.
First time in Monti, loved it.

HollyCasa, neither actually. You could count the shots taken of us on one hand. By complete fluke, we arrived for our lengthy stay in Bevagna just as a perfect storm of celebrations was commencing. Ironically, none of those were its earlier, more high-profile Medieval fest (jayzus you should see the supposedly 'spontaneous' costumed portraits that NG superstar Steve McCurry took there--awesome). Instead it was if memory serves, a Labour Day, combined with a first-ever expanded Food Fest and also the annual Communion for tweeners. To top it all off, there was a '50s R+Roll version performance of Cinderella in the town's authentic historical theatre.
IMHO, Bevagna remains one of Europe's best-kept secrets.

done end
