The Dolomites

The Dolomites in Northern Italy form a part of the Southern Limestone Alps. Also known as the Pale Mountains,they take their name from the carbonate rock dolomite, itself named after 18th-century French mineralogist Déodat Gratet de Dolomieu (1750–1801), who was the first to describe the mineral. Amazing views can be had from the top of these mountains.

Grand Canal Venice

An iconic view looking across the Grand Canal in Venice on a beautiful sunny day. The Gondolas are tied up at their landing stage, some with their blue rain covers on. Got to be the most romantic place in Europe!
