  • Pisa, Italy

    December 14, 2012

    Even though it’s been almost six months since we took our trip this summer.  There are still so many things we haven’t shared.  After five weeks in Paris we took a week vacation in Italy, starting in Pisa. We took a relatively easy budget flight from Paris to Pisa (maybe another post on that later), arriving in the early afternoon and left our huge baggage at the train station baggage check.  We arrived to absolutely beautiful weather, mid 80’s and low 90’s during the day.  It was quite a difference from Paris where the weather was close to the 70’s.

    We took a leisurely self-guided walking tours from the train station to the tower.  Here are some of our highlights in Pisa!

  • Cinque Terre, Italy

    July 11, 2011

    The last week of our trip to Europe this summer was spent vacationing in Italy. The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. “The Five Lands” is composed of five villages: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. We stayed in Vernazza and hiked to the other towns on both sides.  It was so peaceful and relaxing.  It was a wonderful ending to our trip.

  • Milane, Italy

    July 10, 2011

    We spent our last two days in Milane before returning back to the States. We did a lot of sightseeing and eating wonderful Italian food. Milane was beautiful and had a great sense of history (just as ever other city does in Europe) but after leaving Cinque Terre and it’s sense of cozyness and feeling like “home” it was hard to adjust to such a large city with so many shoppers.
