    Our son took us on an amazing trip to Europe this past fall. His favorite place was the scenic coastal village of Tellaro, Italy.
    I was so happy to find a company that sold a poster from there, to put under the tree for my son.
    The poster is just beautiful. It is on a very professional grade paper, and the colors are just stunning. It came wrapped very carefully in tissue paper, therefore in perfect condition.
    The customer service was excellent. I will definitely buy more of these lovely posters the next time I travel.
