    Thanks Margie! I'm glad to see many other pictures of Venice, besides mine. It's indeed a great spot for beautiful pictures, and for a great holiday of course.

  5. Manja Mexi Movie

    Ohh, I'm an Italy-loving blogger as well but haven't seen this call in time to take part (not to mention that there might be other conditions too). I'd be hard pressed to choose only ONE photo to represent my love of Italy. This love is present in every photo I take in this spectacular country. A lovely compilation and idea!

  6. Kathryn Occhipinti

    Che belle foto! What beautiful photos!
