For so long, I have dreamed of an Italian vacation. It just seemed like an impossible dream, given work schedules, school schedules and money. Finally, all the stars aligned and I was able to make it happen for myself, and my family. With the help of a travel agent, and clear schedules all the way around, we made the voyage to the beautiful country of Italy 2 weeks ago. Here, I will share my Italian vacation, and a few things I learned about this glorious place.
I highly recommend packing just one bag for carry-on, it makes getting around from place to place much easier. I also highly recommend using a travel agent for such a big trip, especially if you want to do some tours. Our favorite tour was a food tour in the city of Florence. It’s a excellent way to get to know an area and a culture. Bonus: You may meet some fun people from all over the world who share a love of learning, food and wine! We also did a few walking tours, which is a superb way to learn the history of a place.
Below, I will share the places we visited in Italy. All of the places we visited were in the Tuscan Region. I will also share some of the interesting things we discovered about the people, culture and customs. Enjoy a slice of my Italian vacation, and a few things I learned about this glorious place.
