the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa
Who knew that the mountains surrounded Pisa, as it sits also near the sea?
A view of the Italian Alps as they sweep into the Northwest coast of Italy by the Mediterranean Sea.
The view that took our breath away, driving on the Northwest coast, the Italian Riviera.
Looking out over olive groves, to the Sea dotted with sailboats beside Lavagna, and across to the snow-capped Alps beyond.
The amazing villages built onto the sides of mountains.
We turned north at Genova, Italy, and crossed into Switzerland near Lake Como. Below, the beautiful Lake Como.
In the lower part of Switzerland wedged beside Italy, castles appear on every mountain ledge.
The magnificent waterfalls and views while climbing through the Swiss highlands.
Before our trip, we had hardly heard of Liechtenstein ... we ate dinner in Liechtenstein, a country of 62 square miles and 35,000 residents. Beautiful!
The royal family in Liechtenstein lives in a castle (not sure if it's this one, though).
