Trip Report Loving Italy: our trip to Rome, San Gimigniano and Venice

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

I realized I hadn't posted my trip report "blog" here from our recent trip to Rome, San Gimigniano and Venice. We went in May 2014 and had a blast. I just love Italy! We dream of living there one day...

Itinerary

Boring stuff first:
Who: me, hubby and brother-in-law.
When: 17-28 May. Flying into Rome and out of Venice.
Where: Rome, San Gimigniano,Venice. It's our fourth time to Italy; last time was 2007.

We did a lot of what we planned. Everything went very smoothly. I mean, we were barely lost at all in Venice (thanks to the Streetwise Venice map and brother-in-law's excellent map reading skillz!).

I love researching and planning our trips. I enjoy keeping the experience alive by writing about it upon our return.

Ciao!
