Photo Diary: A Day Trip to Tolentino, Italy

One Saturday afternoon while living in Macerata, Italy, my friends and I decided to turn up at the train station and pick a destination at random. Our fingers landed on the sleepy town of Tolentino nestled in the heart of the Marche region in central Italy. Because the best way to get your bearings in a new city is to pause with a scoop of gelato, we lounged in the sun on the outskirts of Piazza della Libertà and watched the locals go about their weekend. After consulting our stracciatella and our town map, we headed towards the Basilica di San Nicola da Tolentino and just wandered. Here are the pictures from our sunny, quiet afternoon in Tolentino, Italy. 

Editor's Note: All pictures from this set were taken in September 2011 in Tolentino, Italy. As The Paper Airplane takes off the ground, I'll be posting more photo diaries, tips, and tricks from past travels both stateside and abroad. Stay tuned.
