Ahhhh, Venice. The last stop on our European adventure! I can’t believe I’m finally writing this post! (Actually, I can because I should have written this months ago… but the craziness of travel mixed with laziness got the best of me).
The only thing that made leaving the beautiful city of Florence was knowing that next up was Cinque Terre!
Cinque Terre’s popularity has skyrocketed in the last few years, so honestly I was a little apprehensive about how amazing everyone claims that it is. But trust me, it is amazing. My recommendation would be to visit in the late Summer/early Fall. Visiting in October, we were a little past prime season, which is great for budget seekers. Not great for beach weather. Despite not being able to work on my suntan, we still had a beautiful couple of days and I wish we would’ve stayed a little longer.
Florence + Tuscany
We took the train from Rome to Florence. It was a really easy train ride- only takes about 90 minutes. The train station in Florence is walking distance to all of the major landmarks, so you are probably okay walking (as opposed to grabbing a cab) once you arrive into town.
Ahhh, Italy! The final country of our European adventure has finally arrived.
Rome was a bookend destination for our tour de Italy. The first two nights that we spent in Italy were in Rome, as well as the last five. The rest of Italy is very accessible by either plane or train from Rome, so it’s a great starting & ending point if you’re trying to map out your Italian journey. (I just realized that’s where the quote, “All roads lead to Rome” comes from. Mind. Blown.)
First off, apologies for the recent lack of postings. The last month we have been having a lot of fun traveling and as a result, the blog has been a little neglected. A lot of content is coming your way soon!
