Italy is one of my favorite destinations, you could spend forever in this wonderful place. Excellent food and la dolce vita, what else do you need? Here is our experience in various regions and cities in Italy.

Colosseum of Rome, one of the seven wonders of the world!

The first time we went to Italy, we stayed in the outskirts of Rome and we wasted precious time commuting to the city center. We would walk and site see from morning to night. We stayed for 8 days and saw many of Rome’s highlights. It was a wonderful experience.

Our second time in Italy was during a Mediterranean cruise and our visit to Rome was very brief. Not nearly enough time but we took what we could get. We were on a cruise and only had 5 hours in Rome. The port is also very far from the city; it’s in Civitavecchia. If you haven’t been there and think of taking a cruise there, make sure it’s your departure or arrival port and add a few days before or after you’re cruise. You will not regret this!

Piazza San Marco, Venice

On our third trip to Italy, we organized our itinerary ourselves. We travelled by train between cities. The train service is excellent and we wouldn’t hesitate to use it again. Our journey started in Milan, then Venice, Florence and Rome, where it ended. What a great experience!

We hope to go back…
