Italy Here We Come (in 5 months anyway)

1.19.2010
The flights are booked.  Deposits have been made on the apartments.  It's official: we are spending two weeks in Italy this summer.  And while I promise not to be blogging about our upcoming vacation constantly, I did want to share some pics like I promised and then shut up about it.

Anyway... we splurged a little bit on amazing views on the apartment in Florence in order to be enjoying these for an entire week.






 
 
 

Yep those were all taken from some area in the apartment. Can. not. wait.

Our apartment in Rome is much less spectacular but in a good location.



And while I wish this was from the terrace, it is actually taken from a spot close to where we will be staying.


We went the apartment route in the hopes of being able to prepare some of our meals and in the process save some euros.  And to have the experience of shopping in an Italian market.  The website we used to book them was Italy Perfect.  They have had great reviews on TripAdvisor and the BBB.  And they have been very responsive so far to my husband's million questions and emails/phone calls.  They have a lot of great properties in multiple price ranges and for different numbers of people.

Our hotel in Cinque Terre is not booked as of yet.....but I also wanted to share these gorgeous pictures.  Hopefully the couple of days we spend here will be relaxing and full of hiking.







I loved all your comments and suggestions from my previous post on Italy and places to see.  Keep 'em coming!  And now I promise to stop being the girl that keeps talking about her vacation....well until June at least.

  1. After watching Angels and Demons with Tom Hanks yesterday my husband and I are thinking of switching our annual vacation to Rome instead of San Fran and Napa. We will see .....

  2. Holy crap! That looks just amazing. My mom is taking a girl's trip to Italy in a couple years (they are saving up for it!) and now I'm thinking I should go with them...hm....
