Now I must mention about this fab.7 days trip/holiday to Italy.
I think this was one of the best holiday I have had. Italy is a fascinating country with their historic sites to visit and the beautiful seaside, the countryside, their food and generally everything they have is fantastic.
Here it is the places we saw and I want to make notes are:
1- Rome – The Roman remains, The Collesseum, Vatican- St Peters Church and Basilica, Trevi Mountain, their famous Spanish steps
The things I didn’t see were the Vatican Museum. It was a bank holiday on the day we were in Rome and it was shut. I didn’t see the Pantheon as there was just not enough time to do it all. Which is a shame really :-(
2- Mountain Vesuvio and Pompeii- We took a daily tour to Mountain Vesuvio and to Pompeii. Which was a fascinating historic trip
3- Cinque Terre – We went to stay in Corniglio. But also visited the other 4 lands named Monterosso, Vernazza, Riomaggiore and Manorola. The beauty of these 5 lands are breath taking. We saw lots of places and we swam here almost at eac of our destination on that day.
I would love to go to Cinque Terre again and this time I’d stay either at Riomaggiore or at Manorola. Corniglio was great too.
4- Venice – What can I add about Venice other than what it is already known. It is so beautiful and romantic. But it is more romantic winter time that’s why we booked flight to go therefore for my birthday. I can’t wait.
I’d like to mention about one more thing. I don’t take photos like mad during my holidays as I believe I need to see it and record it all in my memory. But during this trip I felt like I had to take loads of photos. And I am happy that I did. I have one album with great views and all brings great memories back in my mind.
By the way as much as this trip was a delight but it was also extremely tiring as it was a very active one. We walked, hiked and swam. As seen on this photo people swim by/from the rocks. I got cut on my hands and feet. I am sure the Italians are used to this but I wasn’t :-) All I can say is that I fell asleep as soon as I saw the pillows in our hotel rooms at nights.
