Wow, Italy is a wonderful country!
We just got back from a brief but perfect trip in Italy. We spent time in Rome, Florence, Monterosso al Mare, and flew back from Milan. There is so much to say about this wonderful country, so much history, so much art, so much appreciation for life. We got lost touring the amazing churches of Rome's St. Peter's Basilica and the Duomo in Florence. We zapped around with crazy drivers on the city streets and the gorgeous countryside. We toured a 12th century castle and drank more than our fair share of wine and olive oil. We spent relaxing days exploring the beach town of Monterosso al Mare and splashing in the warm and (usually) calm waters of the Mediterranean. We ate gelato, pizza, pasta and fish. We cannot say enough about this wonderful country.
Next time we'll even consider taking the kids.
