A day trip from Bari included a stop to see some “Trulli” – ancient traditional stone huts with conical roofs.

And also to the town of Gravina, to see an ancient Roman bridge.

For all the bounty that she brings, Mount Etna’s power can be devastating.

The old town of Trapani is most beautiful at dusk.

So is the coastline, with islands seen in the distance.

The island of Favignana was inspiring.

Our afternoon visiting Erice (a small town on a cliff above Trapani), was fraught with cold and fog.

The most beautiful place we’ve ever been to? Probably Amalfi.

Even when it appears ready to storm.

And especially at dusk, when from the pier, the village is welcoming.

  4. I really thought they were postcards you bought! Haha. Beautiful photos! Makes me want to go back to Italy right now. (And to be a better photographer, Lol)

    • Thanks Kieu, that’s the best compliment we could receive :) To be a better photographer, I can only suggest just keep shooting and read lots. We still consider ourselves newbies and we’re learning so much every day that we take the camera out.

  5. These are just gorgeous! Can I ask what kind of camera you guys use?

    • Agreed, we took just a couple photos :)

      When I first went through the selection process for this post I think I had around 50-60 picked out. Dalene had to be the critical judge and each one she tossed I groaned at.

  8. These are beautiful pictures! As I was scrolling through them I kept saying to myself “ooh that one is my favorite” so I don’t have a favorite because I love them all :)
