That’s right y’all, Ryan & I have officially planned our trip to Europe this spring and I couldn’t be more excited!! We will be heading to the beautiful country of Italy for 10 days in May as we celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Even though I was born in Moscow, I have never been back to Europe and while I’m a little nervous for the long flight, I’m ready to see new sights and experience a new culture. I’m excited to share this with you guys but since I’m kind of clueless when it comes to Eurotrips, I thought I’d reach out for some blogger-to-blogger advice.
Here’s where you come in. If you’ve ever visited Italy, I’m looking for tons of recommendations for hotels/B&Bs, sights to see, restaurants, and just any travel tips in general. The only thing we’ve booked so far is our flight and our hotel in Positano. Now, I will say I’m not a big history buff and I want to see the “must-see” spots, but nothing too history-focused. I’m just excited about the food. And wine!!!
Here is the lineup of the cities we’ll be visiting:
FLORENCE– I hear this is one of the coolest cities and I definitely have to see the statue of David. Other than than…. I have no idea! We’re here 2 nights so I need some good hotel recommendations.
CINQUE TERRE– We’re staying here one night, any recommendations on which city to stay in? Manarola seems to come up a lot.
VENICE– You can’t visit Italy without visiting Venice, right?! I know I want to see Saint Mark’s Basilica (ps. where do all those birds come from?) and take a gondola ride, duh!
POSITANO– I’m probably most excited for this stop. The Amalfi Coast looks absolutely gorgeous and we’ll be doing a little more relaxing once we get to this cliffside town.
ROME– Other than the Colosseum, what should we be checking out in Rome?
It would mean SO much to me if y’all could help a sister out with some recommendations for Italy. Our next order of business is to hopefully finalize some more hotels this weekend and then start looking at trains. Oh, and did I mention that I’m going to *attempt* to pack 10 days in a carry-on?! #JesusTakeTheWheel. Can’t wait to see what you guys have to say and hope y’all have a fabulous weekend!
