Susan Papazian has delighted us before with her outstanding photos. She's shared galleries of Tuscany and of Orvieto, and now she's shared the beautiful images of Italy from her latest journey through the beautiful Italian boot.
All of Susan's photos make me want to cry in the loveliest of ways; I can almost hear the chaos of the piazza, smell the sweet jasmine of the Amalfi Coast. How I long to be back in the beautiful landscapes she shares.
I hope the photos have the same effect on you. Remember, too, that if you feel life would be a little better in Italy, even if only for a short while, then you can start booking now simply by clicking here.
Is there anywhere that says Italy more than the Amalfi Coast? This photo was taken in Positano on this coast...I simply love the little fiat in the foreground! If you'd like to visit the Amalfi Coast here are my suggestions.
For a taste of genuine Italian beach life the Marina Grande di Amalfi is one of the best beaches on the Amalfi Coast (these are some others).
Naples is not a city for the faint-hearted. I once didn't really "get Naples, but after a friend shared an article about Naples on my website, I decided to give it another chance, and I have to admit, Naples has started to steal a little of my heart.
It is not the easiest of cities; and it is definitely a little of an acquired taste, you need to look beyond the chaos, the graffiti, and the problems. Under all of that, Naples is a passionate and fascinating city, and most of the people are wonderful, warm and so kind and welcoming.
Puglia has to be one of the most fabulous of all Italian regions. I mean, it has absolutely everything, from the Caves of Polignano to the Gargano Peninsula, which is featured on this list of the eight most incredible Italian places. I nearly forgot, the beaches are awesome as well: these are the best ones.
Bari too is an amazing city, the photos below were taken in the old town. I love the old town; you really must try to visit. Our Bari Guide has everything you need to make your vacation in Bari a reality.

Castaluccia di Norcia lies high upon the Umbrian plain in the Monte Sibillini National Park and on the border of Le Marche.
Spring is the time to visit; fields are filled with flowers, the air is fresh and all the villagers seem to have a smile on their face. June too is the time that festivals like the Festa dell'Ascensione take place.
