We spent our last days in Italy on the island of Capri and it was truly amazing. Capri is a short ferry ride away from Positano and very easy to visit, even if just for a day trip. The island is truly a paradise with beautiful scenery at every turn, enticing boutiques and plenty of tasty ristorantes.
The scenery on the Amalfi Cost is dazzling. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. The town of Positano climbing the Italian hillside with the colorful beach umbrellas below, all lined in rows facing the marina filled with boats swaying in the sea is simply spectacular.
Rome has a thing for monuments. And boy are the beautiful! We did a self-guided walking tour of Rome’s main attractions and loved getting lost in between. The Eternal City is sprawling yet walkable, which makes it easy to pack a lot of sightseeing into a short period of time.
Florence, or Firenze in Italian, is hands down one of my favorite cities. The architecture, art, fashion and the food are all exceptional. And it doesn’t hurt that Florence is the capital of Tuscany which as we all know is a region renowned for it’s vino!
Burano is a small island off the coast of Venice. It’s known for it’s bright, beautifully colored houses which line small canals. The colorful homes are quite charming and their reflection off of the water only add to the cheery splendor of Burano. It’s surreal walking around the secluded, quiet island.
We recently went on an Italian holiday and our first stop was Venice. We arrived by boat from the airport, which is the best way to come into the city and take full advantage of the beauty of Venice. Scott and I wandered the narrow, winding streets and came across troves of shops, street vendors and eateries. The canals and bridges make navigating interesting, but that’s half of the fun!
