After leaving beautiful Barcelona
I made my way to Rome
A bullfight in Arles
And Cinque Terre
Were the highlights

In Arles, France

Church in the old town

Gay conga line

Le Pont de Trinquetaille

Site of the Van Gogh painting

Kitten and pig

Off to Avignon

Sur le Pont d'Avignon

On y danse, on y danse

My shadow

Another site of Van Gogh

Cafe la nuit

My highlight of Arles

Was a camarguese bullfight

Everyone was out

Panorama of Les Arenes

Very festive

The men try to remove flowers from the horns

Crazy bull was trying to get to the crowd!

So amazing to watch

Rasateur jumping away


Arrived in beautiful Cinque Terre

5 towns on the coast

Our homebase Manarola

Picturesque Vernazza


Waiting for the train

With Phil, fellow backpacker

Monterosso's beach

Fishing village

Lovely Riomaggiore

Riomaggiore panorama

Phil at sunset

Quick day in Florence

Lucky pig

And the fake David

Another statue

David's ass

Colosseum in Rome

Historical but a bit dull inside

And the ruins of the Forum

Made for great pictures

Cat sanctuary

Day trip to the Vatican

Most amazing church

Pretty ceilings

Touching the magic toe

In the church

Marble column

Some famous statue

And the sealed holy door

Entertainment for the pope

Sending postcards

Inside the Pantheon

Navona Fountain was my favourite

Was this in Angels and Demons?

Wishing at Trevi Fountain


Escaped from hectic Rome

To Ostia Antica

A complete city in ruins

Brings me back to another time

Great beach in Lido di Ostia
