Trip Report Experiencing Venice and Florence

Jump to last reply

For a trip report, I'd like to share the online version of a magazine article I wrote on the subject title. There is a bit of navigation involved, but it's pretty easy.

At www.times-herald.com/magazine, look for recent issues and click on July/August. When "summer fun" comes up, you'll notice to the right of the cover a box with a magnifying glass. Click it, type "32", hit enter, and then click on "pages 32". Click on the arrows to obtain a full screen. If you click on a photo, it will enlarge.

Admittedly, the observation about Venice is common knowledge among veteran travelers, but it might help some. The section on Florence is rather subjective, but it is my experience.

Hope you enjoy the article.
