Explore Venice and Verona in One Weekend
I’m so happy that so many people loved my updated version of Cinque Terre. It’s been about three years since I studied abroad in Italy, and it was time for these posts to get a major update. This time, my destination is Venice and Verona. Before I get into what you need to see in Venice and Verona, let me explain how excited I was before I went to Venice. My first real introduction to Italy was learning about Venice and the canals. I remember watching movie after movie about the beautiful scenery.

Christmas in Italy

Friday, we woke up early and jumped on a bus in Florence. When we arrived to Venice, we checked into an… interesting… hotel. There was a little mold in certain places, but we survived! The first thing Courtney did was check the corners of the beds for bed…

Cinque Terre: The 5 colorful towns.
Hello darlings! This wonderful weekend I went to Cinque Terre with three of my friends! Each weekend in Italy is spent seeing the most beautiful places. Cinque Terre might be my new favorite. This weekend we hiked, ate the best seafood, and saw some of the most picturesque houses in the word. I took over 200 photos and I am being serious when I say not one photo turned out poorly. Cinque Terre is one of the most picturesque places I’ve ever been to (so far). Lets start with food. Have you ever heard of focaccia? I never heard about it until I went to Cinque Terre. Focaccia is a flat…
