Our Trip to Italy

By Alyssa Rogers

Why Italy?

After several viewings of the film “Under the Tuscan Sun”, I realized how much I longed to return to Italy. Over ten years ago , I visited Rome and Florence, but I never made it to the coast or countryside. On this trip, my boyfriend and I decided to further explore “La Bella Italia.” We went to Rome, Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, and traced our family roots in Sicily.
