Welcome to my photos
of a wonderful trip my wife Gladys and I took to Northern Italy. We
were invited to attend a travel agents familiarization trip to the
Lake Maggiore and Lake Como area to include a side trip to Lugano,
The trip was sponsored by the Donna Franca Tours
which is an Italian Tour company headquartered in Boston, MA. We were
pleasantly surprised to find the beautiful Donna herself and her lovely
daughter Judi joining us on our trip.

This web site has been constructed
to help others plan a trip to this paradise destination and
to share some of the wonderful images and memories Gladys
and I experienced on our 6 day trip. You will have the opportunity
to enjoy over 500 images and read about our experiences. I
hope you will find the journey as exciting as we did.
A special thank you
to Donna, her daughter Judi, Marco and all the people that took part
in making our journey one we will not soon forget. Although this was
our third trip to Italy and the first one to this region, I would
have to say it was one of our favorites. I would urge anyone thinking
of Italy for the first time to consider taking this trip over the
more popular sight seeing trips. If you appreciate natures wonders
and enjoy being pampered and cared for like no other place in the
world, then this is the destination for you.
This site is still under construction, so enjoy
some of the photos in the meantime and start to read the story or
our trip, but do come back to complete the journey. You will meet
some of the great people we met on our trip and hear about our picks
of the best hotels and things to do on your next Italian
Vacation to Northern Italy.
Make sure to click all the links
to the hotels and sites of interest that I have included on this
site. It will give you more information and lots of additional
