A trip to Italy - Part 2 - Side trips and a big finish
In Gubbio, in Umbria, north of Rome, this wise old cat will stare into your soul
In the second part of our 2003 trip to Italy, we left Rome to visit some other towns. Then we finish back in Rome, where there's always more to see.
A cloudy sun rests behind this beautiful ornament.

At night, along a curving street in Gubbio.

Along the road, I saw this discarded package of cigarettes. It says, "Smoking kills."

Most pictures show it from the side, but I thought the overhead view was more interesting.
