Travel plans l.jpg

Travel Plans

Armed with a small library of paperbacks and travel guides, thirty rolls of film, and the requisite gear from Mountain Equipment Co-op, my sister and I traveled to Italy in May.

For one month we endured heat and crowds, marveled at art and architecture, gorged ourselves on Fanta and gelato, and blew our budget.

Take a look…


Naples napoli l.jpg

Naples ~ Napoli

  • One of the many churches – Chiesa di San Francesco di Paola (left)

  • Other major sites to see are:

    • Castel Nuovo

    • Teatro San Carlo

    • Galleria Umberto I

Rome

Piazza della Bocca della Verita


Ostia antica l.jpg

Ostia Antica

One of the highlights of Italy was wandering the ruins of this ancient seaport, a quick daytrip from Rome.


Orvieto l.jpg

Orvieto

Bella Umbria

  • Located between Rome and Florence

  • With a magnificent duomo, Etruscan ruins, and small museums there is much to see

  • Browse in craft shops for ceramics, leather goods, and even marionettes


Florence firenze l.jpg

Florence ~ Firenze

  • “Hannibal” was filming in this area while we were visiting

  • Nearby the Palazzo Vecchio (left) is the Uffizi, while a short stroll across the Ponte Vecchio leads to the Palazzo Pitti with its charming Boboli Gardens


Venice venezia l.jpg

Venice~ Venezia

A truly romantic place, Venice is crowded with wonderful canals, palaces, churches, and shops.

A few islands are within a quick ferry ride from Venice – Murano, (right) known for its glass, and Burano, famous for its lace


The cinque terre l.jpg

The Cinque Terre

Highly recommended by many guides, I found that the charm of the 5 villages was exaggerated. But perhaps it was the cockroaches in the hotel?


Milan milano l.jpg

Milan ~ Milano

Duomo

Often overlooked, Milan is rich for exploring. If you are a person of means there is great shopping for you to do.

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II


Museums not to be missed l.jpg

MuseumsNot to Be Missed

  • Museo Archeologico Nazionale – Archaeological Museum, Naples

    • Museo Egizio – Egyptian Museum, Turin

      • Palazzo Ducale - Doge’s Palace, Venice

        • Vatican Museums - Rome

          • Uffizi - Florence


Caution l.jpg

Caution!

  • On every trip there will be times when you are surprised, disappointed, or exhausted

  • I would not recommend Certosa di Pavia monastery, Turin’s Museo di Arti Decorative or Siena

  • Remember that sometimes you need a vacation from your vacation so be sure to plan a few days to rest

Not all toilets were created equal!

Hostels + Bongos + Wine =No Sleep
