  1. Hi Cindy. So very, very, very prefect that you posted these today. I am currently listening to Italian music as I pack to head for the Amalfi Coast, then Rome, for a month. Neat! Neat! Neat!

  2. Hi Cindy , everything you have photographed has given one the feel of being there with you. They have told a very exciting story of your adventures and the colours are superb, photographed as usual with your professional and skilful approach.
    I’ll speak soon Cindy, regards James 🙂

    • I don’t think so. This was built as a Christian church. The marble was quarried nearby and is quite striking I agree. There are Roman statues that are made of the black and white marble and they are incredibly stiking as well. I agree. The interior and exterior of this church (the exterior is also in black and white striped marble) are breathtaking>

  3. I have such fond memories of strolling around this incredibly serene Italian destination. As you know, the light (sun) is such a powerful part of the culture, which is evident in your photographs.
