What an amazing short and sweet trip in Italy with bae and his family. We flew into Venice and took a train days later to Rome and stopped in Florence along the way. Very easy to just take the trains down this path as they are all on the way. Next time I have more days in Italy I will definitely be making it out to the coast!
Venice is a beautiful little floating city where you can spend 2-3 days. It is very small so everything can be seen quickly. Very romantic with its Gondola rides and water front dining. Rome was absolutely beautiful and although it had so many incredible historical and ancient landmarks, it was also a very modern city. We spent one of the days in the Vatican and it was so eye opening. My favorite part was seeing the ever so famous Michelangelo painting on the ceiling of the Sisteen Chapel. You aren’t allowed photos in there but as you can see in my gallery I snuck one in 🙂
One thing we all learned in our trip was to find little whole in the wall restaurants for the best most authentic delicious pasta!! The pasta photo in my gallery was at our favorite pasta spot in Rome that was literally hidden in an alley. So yummy!
