Spending some hours of a rainy Sunday in looking some flying photos, I found these from a trip that I had with my wife Katia on August, 2015.
Ok, it's like a small hop but the view is always breath taking.
On a beautiful summer day we departed to south-east with our mountain scenery :

On final to Venice Lido Airport :
Venice 'Nicelli' Airport : in 1926 this airport was inaugurated as the first civil airport in Italy, when Rome and Milan did not even have their own airfields. For two years Venice remained the first Italian airport throughout 1928 being surpassed by Littorio in Rome.
After spending a day in Venice we headed back home, mountains again ad a look in Trento historical downtown:
