It’s National Hockey League playoff time so I’ve been neglecting the travel blog lately. I’m working on some planning for my upcoming trip to London so I expect that there will be more traffic soon, but for now here is another Travel Photo Thursday. I’m a little worried that you’re all sick of my Hong Kong photos, so here’s something from a trip we took to Italy in 2010.
I’d been wanting to go back to Italy for a slower trip following the Mediterranean cruise that we took a couple of years earlier. I wasn’t too sure that it would actually happen until Mrs A|T discovered the Twilight books and decided that she needed to visit Volterra in Italy. While we started the day chasing down fictional landmarks from the books, we finished up by exploring the ruins on an old Roman theatre.
Volterra is a really nice Tuscan hill town. It was a bit overrun with Twilight tourists, but you didn’t have to get too far off the beaten path to find some beautiful quiet streets. This is my submission to Travel Photo Thursday hosted by Budget Travelers Sandbox.Be sure to check it out to see more great travel photos from bloggers around the world!
Another nice street shot.
I can just imagine the people sitting in these seats, which were originally covered in marble.
The stage was to the right of those tall columns.
