italy 10.26.07

we just returned home from our 2 week vacation in italy with my family. we had such an amazing time and A + L did so well on the trip. we started off in rome for two days and then we all drove to tuscany and stayed in a villa near siena for a week. while we were staying at the villa, we took day trips to different towns in tuscany. the drives to the towns were beautiful and i could have easily spent every moment of my vacation photographing the italian scenery. after the villa, the four of us drove up to the italian riviera town of portofino which is absolutely beautiful. it is often referred to as the jewel of europe and i can see why it deserves this title. we stayed in portofino for 3 days and then drove back to rome to fly home. here's a few images of our adventures
