HOMEPAGE for all of Phil and Molly's Pics Picture Pages of ITALY

1. The Rail Trip Journey from Chambery in France through the Alps to Italy - Turin (Torino), Milan (Milano), Bologna, Florence (Firenze) and Passignano on Lake Trasimeno in Italy

The pictures are a compilation from the outward bound and return journeys on different trains and different TGV routes from/to Paris, and also between Turin, Milan and Florence. Other pictures have been inserted based on day trips from Passignano

All the stations mentioned: Chambery - Saint Jean de Maurienne - Milano Porta Garibaldi/Centrale - Torino Porta Susa  - Firenze - Passignano

Most of the scenery shots were taken through the high speed train windows, so don't expect perfection! BUT I hope they give an impression of wonderful this train trip was.
