Vacay Part 1: Italy

Gerren and I recently closed down shop and went on a vacation of a lifetime. We traveled to Italy and France. Here are some pics of our adventures in Italy.

Rome Highlights:

  • We rented apartments for most of our trip through HomeAway and AirBnB. I highly recommend it! It was fun to live like a local, visit the market and cook our own food once in a while.
  • Gelato! It’s homemade and in abundance.
  • Piazza Navona, it’s a beautiful square filled with local artists, live music and great cafes.

Florence Highlights:

  • Boboli Gardens: Lush gardens you can get lost in. Perfect for a romantic stroll and views of the countryside.
  • Museo Galileo: This is an eclectic museum filled with gadgets and gizmos a plenty (globes, clocks, telescopes, star charts). If you are into steampunk and astronomy, it’s a must see!
  • Piazza Michelangelo: A hilltop terrace overlooking the city. Be sure to explore the charming neighborhood below.

Cinque Terre Highlights:

  • The Food: Pasta frutti di mare (fresh seafood and pasta)! The best I’ve ever had. Ask for a glass of the local wine, as each village makes their own.
  • The beach: Even in October it was warm enough to swim. Monterosso has the best beach and boardwalk, perfect for snorkeling or people watching.
  • The Views: Corniglia sits on top of a hill and has magnificent views of the coastline. Be prepared for a strenuous uphill hike to reach it.
