The project commenced shortly after our arrival in Italy. The first
pictures (of the volcano Solfatara) were taken in December of 1998.
Since then the project has developed a life of its own. We
lived in Italy until April of 2007 and over the years we
spent as expatriates, we developed a deep understanding
and appreciation of the unique beauty that one finds in
Italy. Today we are still
creating photo tours, and adding content that will
useful to those who intend to travel or relocate to
of this project is to amass a collection of original, high quality, digital
images. We do our best to ensure that the pictures are accompanied by substantive
information to provide the reader with the details that enable the photos to be
viewed in historical and cultural context.
Additionally, we strive to provide geographical information that will
allow the reader to put the tour sites on the map."
Currently our operation
is supported by advertising. The wealth of information available on this site is free
to all visitors. Our business is simple: provide good photos of popular and
off-the-beaten-path sites in
Italy, and accompany the photos with solid and verifiable information.
We believe that the information here will allow people to experience (part
of) the cultural and historical richness of Italy - one of the most beautiful countries
in the world. Also, we hope to provide a little insight for those who will never be able to
make the journey for themselves. For those who are planning on visiting
Italy, perhaps the information contained on this site will help with the
decisions of "what to see?" and "where to go?".
