My trip was super grand! amazing and breathtaking in more ways than I can describe. It was all a bit overwhelming and in some ways also like being at home! Italy has so much in common with some of the best parts of California. Everyone was so kind and generous to us and we had the best of times.
I’m not quite sure where to start telling you about so I suppose I’ll start at the beginning and post a little bit at a time. My traveling companion was our friend Connie Lynne who loves all things delicious and also enjoys prowling through random fancy shops. She likes kitties, wine, talking Italian and was an awesome traveling companion.
The plan- Rome for three days- Florence for seven days- Venice for three days. Take trains from city to city. Eat Gelato at least twice a day.
We arrived in Rome early the morning of Tuesday and took a taxi to our b&b near the Tremini station. Our host at Giovy house, Giovanna greeted us very warmly and fixed us breakfast of cappuccino, brioche, juice, yoghurt and fresh fruit. She fed us like this every day.
The Pantheon which was one of the most amazing things to see on the whole trip! Having seen pictures of this since I was young in every art history class ever it was amazing to jump right in and see it on our very first afternoon.
