The only morning I spent in Rome was rushed. Between trying to figure out how to buy the metro tickets and figuring out what we want to see within a two hour period, things were done in haste. The streets were nearly dead and the […]
I fell in love with Venice instantly, even in the short amount time that I got to visit (less than 24 hours). We took a water taxi into the city, had enough time to explore, have lunch and dinner, then took another taxi out of […]
