1957 Italy Vatican City

49. Italy 1957 – Florence, Venice, Siena and Rome

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


Doris travelled a number of times to various parts of Italy between the mid 50s and late 80s. Links to other places are here.
