Overview

Embark upon a photographic tour of the world’s most picturesque country. From the grandeur of Rome to the artistic splendors of Florence and Venice, from Tuscan hillsides to the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, Italy has it all. Unique landscapes are captured in evocative photographs that showcase the natural wonders of the Mediterranean and superb architecture from Roman and Renaissance times. The Splendor of Italy features stunning vistas that can only be found in Italy; the kind you come across quite by chance, and that take your breath away, in the midst of a busy city or on a tranquil hilltop village, well off the beaten track. From Alpine lakes to baroque churches, lively piazzas to rugged coastlines, worldclass sculptures to bustling markets, this book captures the true spirit and beauty of Italy. Nor are the major landmarks forgotten– Pisa’s Leaning Tower, the ruins of Pompeii, Rome’s Colosseum and Florence’s Duomo are all captured here in stunning full color. Once seen, never forgotten; this visual feast of Italy’s classic heritage and present delights will give you a host of reasons to return and explore the country anew.
