Jump to last reply

After several posts and many adjustments to our schedule, I have our final itinerary set. My wife and I are starting to get very excited now that we have flights & hotels set along the way. It will be fun to fine tune our stops and learn about all things we must see and do along our route. Thank you to everyone who gave input to help us get to help us 'trim down' or trip and get to this point.

I know many of you scoff at the night & 1/2 day in Rome but as I explained in a previous thread, we hope to return in a few years to share Rome and all of it's history with our kids. This trip is just for my wife and I to celebrate our 10th anniversary/40th birthdays. So ... here we go:
