To celebrate my new blog, I created a very big post that includes amazing photos (I took) from Italy. All photos are followed by text and helpful links. It took me a week to create this post so I hope you like it and that it helps you if you really are going on a vacation in Italy.

For the photographers out there. Below is my gear list:

On March of 2015 my wife and I stayed in Italy for almost 1 month, using AirBnB. It was our honeymoon vacation and we wanted to see as much as we could. We walked everywhere, about 10 miles a day.

Not having a car in Italy, makes you do that, walking, and lets you explore places you probably wouldn’t have.

Although, we had a great experience that time, the next time we are going to do Italy with a car.

The places you are about to see here are: Milano, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Rome, Sorento, Capri, Amalfi, Positano, Salerno and Napoli.

Start packing πŸ˜‰

Our First Stop – Milan (Milano)

1. Duomo Di Milano – Milan Cathedral – Exterior (Front Central Door)

The Duomo

The Mighty Duomo by Moshe Levis. Below are directions from the airport.

In 1386, Archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo began construction of the cathedral. Start of the construction coincided with the ascension to power in Milan of the archbishop’s cousin Gian Galeazzo Visconti, and was meant as a reward to the noble and working classes, who had suffered under his tyrannical Visconti predecessor BarnabΓ². Before actual work began, three main buildings were demolished: the palace of the Archbishop, the Ordinari Palace and the Baptistry of St. Stephen at the Spring, while the old church of Sta. Maria Maggiore was exploited as a stone quarry. Enthusiasm for the immense new building soon spread among the population, and the shrewd Gian Galeazzo, together with his cousin the archbishop, collected large donations for the work-in-progress. The construction program was strictly regulated under the “Fabbrica del Duomo”, which had 300 employees led by first chief engineer Simone da Orsenigo. Orsenigo initially planned to build the cathedral from brick in Lombard Gothic style. – according to Wikipedia
