Italian Photographs

I am feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment. Our Facebook fans are sending me so many lovely photos and they tend to disappear down the timeline of our Facebook page as fast as they arrive.

This is such a shame as so many of the photos deserve to be shared more widely.

That is why I have started gallery pages packed full of these photos. The main Gallery index page can be viewed here and if you scroll down a little you'll discover the photos of Simay, Hans Vingerhoed, the Korkomaz family and Eyad.

Nearly forgot, if you like the photos It would be great if you could like this page and our Facebook one too.

 Korkomaz's Rome

Trevi Fountain Rome

The Trevi Fountain in Rome has to be one of the loveliest of all Italian fountains. It'll also guarantee you a return ticket back to Rome - simply throw in a few coins.  Plus if you get here early, when few tourists are around, it has too be one of the most romantic spots in Rome. By the way if romance is your aim you need to check out the Suite Sistina too.
