Florence: Highlights of the City (Part 1)

The second stop on our trip through Italy was Florence.  It was a short stop, we spent just 24 hours in the city.  We heard so many great things about the area but time wasn't on our side for this initial trip.  Still, we managed to see quite a few highlights and take in the unique culture.

Venice: Highlights of the City (Part 1)

In July, my sister and I spent 8 days exploring Italy.  It was a great chance to catch up and appreciate some one-on-one time that is so hard to come by as we get older and move apart.  Our first stop in Italy was Venice.  Of all the cities that I visited along the way, I think that I loved this city most.  The lack of cars and all the narrow twisting and narrow streets made it feel very special.
