Rain in Italy is only fractionally better than UK rain.
I was away for a week but managed to get to various places including Venice, Turin and Genova, with a day trip to Portofino.
Despite the grey rain I saw some lovely things ...........
Colour pigments in a shop in Calle delle Boteghe, Venice
The ceiling of the Accademia, Venice
A Venetian wall
Enormous pans used for cooking fish for the whole village during festival, near Genova
Lovely facades in Portofino
Amazing colour on a wet day in Venice
Washing in Portofino
and of course those beautiful shapes in Venice
