My wife and I began the vacation in Rome tackling the biggies of the early Etruscans and Romans;
moved into the medieval and renaissance periods in Florence, Lucca, and Pisa;
three days of tranquility in the Cinque Terre;
and finally, a couple of days to prepare for the journey back to the states in the comfort of Milano.

I have a number of interesting photos showing items in the various museums visited as well as city scapes and important buildings in many of the cities. Over time, I will add an occasional posting detailing these travels and, hopefully, tie these photo journals into an historical context that might be of interest to wargamers or readers interested in ancient and renaissance Italy.
In the meantime, I return to the painting desk and wargame table. I have a good chance of participating in at least one game this upcoming weekend and figures await the brush.
That is all for now...
