I spent the end of October and majority of November exploring some of the cities in Northern Italy and I brought my Polaroid Snap Instant camera along, taking some awesome shots that made handheld memories. Not only did the Polaroid Snap add to my Italy trip’s memorabilia – it also made for some really cool “photo of a photo” shots. Scroll along as I revisit my Italy trip with my Polaroid Snap, snaps.
First stop: Milan, Italy. Would it be a trip to Milan without a visit to the Duomo? Even on a gloomy day the Duomo makes for an awesome capture and it was fun to play a game with myself, seeing if I could get two of the same people in the Polaroid Snap shot, and the photo of the Snap.
My second stop was Bellagio, on Lake Como. The town was so perfectly “Italy” – colorful buildings adorned with vines.
What I loved most about Bellagio was the view from my hotel rooftop. I have an affinity for old towns and terracotta roof tops. These views have a direct line to my heart.
Oh, Verona, the city of love – the home to Romeo and Juliet. You can feel the love in the air and the architecture around the entire city was GORGEOUS. I loved all the pink locks left at Juliet’s house by hopeful couples leaving a piece of themselves in hopes of Juliet blessing them with a lifetime of love.
There was nothing as quaint and perfect as the Cinque Terre region in Italy. The five towns are each more beautiful than the last. Pictured here is the southern-most of the five towns, Riomaggiore.
It was really difficult to decide on which of the five towns was my favorite but Maranola definitely took the cake. The way the ocean crashed into the marina just below the colorful town sprawled on a mountainside was perfect.
I loved walking around the marina in all of the five towns but it was particularly special how all the locals’ boats were propped up in the Marina in Vernazza.
One of the best parts about this trip was the fact that I was traveling in off-season! Outside of the Duomo in Milan (a very busy city) I didn’t have to fight any crowds to get any of my photos, or my photos of a photo!
