Europe-Italy-Rome A great photo including The Pantheon . I have been to Rome a few times but still feel I have much to see. I will just have to go back..
|I do like this stamp with the old and the new soldiers.|
Europe-Italy-Rome The Colosseum. Took a great tour inside. Massive in size . Just to think as I sat there all the history of the place. No sign of Russell Crowe anywhere!! A World Heritage Site.
|Yes this is a stamp! Made of Silk. The stamp value is on the top right of €2.58. I was not sure if the post office would even postmark this as I put it in a letter box. Very nice to feel and a rare usage I would think.|
Europe-Vatican City Not often you can get a whole Country on a postcard! You need lots of patience visiting Vatican City as you wont be alone. I certainly was not. When in Rome......
|The Vatican Post office is a busy place. I am told the mail out of here is quicker then by sending out of the Italian Post office. Vatican stamps are always religious. Here is the previous Pope,Benedict .|
Europe-Sovereign Order of Malta The Roman steps and the Trevi Fountain. Very near here is the Sovereign Order of Malta. Not really a country but they do have permanent status at the United Nations.
Europe-Italy-Gioia del Colle A very old town from 7c BC. In the province of Bari. Was here for work. But did enjoy walking around the town in the evening. One of the joys of the small towns in Italy.
|When you think of Italy you have to think of Food. In this area of Italy the food is marvellous and cheap. I guess it is one of the poorest regions of Italy but you still get the great food. The Stamp shows a glass of wine and some food,says it all.|
|Showing a definitive stamp from Italy.|
