MY WORLD - Garda Lake Italy

more participants here

I am still at the Garda lake, but on wednesday we go home.
The little port of Torbole where we have rented our flat.


it is a paradise for windsurfers and they come from all over the world here for excercising and competitions.

Of course we also went to Rovereto, the town where my husband was born, to visit some family and friends.




The church of Rovereto from inside


On one of the town towers was a sundial (?) It was short after 6 pm I think

little streets

and remains of the town wall

The church of Rovereto is so beautiful! You've taken fantastic shots. I think the narrow streets add to the overall beauty of the place.

Those weeeee little streets in foreign countries is what I find so fascinating! Of course, I LOVE the beauty of the mountains and the lake! But those little streets... and what goes on in them...

What a glorious place to spend a holiday and have friends and family to visit with.
Lovely church, sindial, tower and part of the old wall and a lake as well. Does it get any better than that?

looks really beautiful.. thanks a lot for sharing with us your vacation.. the golden church is amazing. i think it might hurt in the eyes to be inside for a long time.
