"Welcome to my page" oriettaIT's Profile

Ciao, my name is Orietta and I live in a small village 15 km from Padova a province of Veneto region, North Eastern Italy. Padova is beautiful and interesting but, as we are so close to Venice and Verona, it is often forgotten by the tourists. I have lived in this area all my life moving a few time around and know very well the city and also the Colli Euganei, the padovan's hills. You can find more information about those in my Padova page here and on the pages I linked there.

Thank you for visiting my modest pages, I am always slowing working on them, so, feel free to ask me about the places i visited, I will be happy to answer.

As English is not my mother tongue, I will be glad to get your notice about any mistake you will find on my writing.

All pictures on this my pages are my own, please do not use without permission. Thanks
