The Italian job

Last month I spent some time in the Piemonte region of Italy well known for skiiing in the winter and summer sports such as canoeing. I was visiting the many beautiful historic sites, more on that to come soon. In between times, I fell in love all over again with Italian style from the architecture, interior design, shops, food and more.

Blondes do have more fun… Bogart is distracted by Marilyn Monroe’s décolletage while Bacall looks on adoringly.
Albergo Sacro Monte at Varallo in the mountains.

Italy is the place to buy pasta, the range is a cook’s dream.
Alpine cabin interior design, Albergo Sacro Monte in the Italian alps.
Ancient town of Varallo dressed up with flowers.
Orchids, shopping in Novara.
So many exquisite frescoes.
Romeo, wherefore art thou? Romantic Italian courtyard.

I was a guest of Visit Piemonte and would like to thank the team there for a very enjoyable trip, and professional tour guide Sonia Bruna who worked so hard to keep us all to the timetable!
