This is a spectacular photo, that we were lucky enough to capture on such a clear day, of the Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padova, Italy. Not only is it remarkable on the outside, the courtyards inside are well worth a visit, especially on a hot Italian day.
Our friends, Francesco and Fabiola, took a Valentines Day trip to Verona, a city known for love and the backdrop for the famous love story Romeo and Juliet. We fell in love with this shot of the city decorated in hearts.
On Sunday I visited Chioggia, a miniature Venice 25 kilometers to the south. Here fishing boats and cars are more common than gondolas and overpriced tourist shops. And...if you ever wondered what it would be like to drive a car through Venice, this is the closest you'll get.

Well I haven't tried all the gelato in Italy to make this decision, but I've had my fair share. Honestly, if I could only eat gelato from one place again for the rest of my life, well I might need to move to a tiny town named Gazzo in the shadows of Padova. It's just that good.
