Jetsetting to Italy

One week from today, I will be off for my trip to Italy! I am beyond words excited for this trip!

We are flying into Rome and will be staying there for a few days before heading up to Tuscany and Florence. After that, we are off to the gorgeous coast of Cinque Terre and then Milan where we fly out.

Any tips, tricks or recommendations are more than welcome! I am all ears for some great hot spots from all of you!

My favorite place! In Rome, visit the Trastevere neighborhood, it has amazing little trattorias, piazzas, and lots of locals. Try fried/stuffed squash blossoms, they're in season this time of year. Also the Borghese Gardens are beautiful.

In Cinqueterre, if you're up to it, do the hike between Monterosso and Vernazza, beautiful amazing views but the hike is hard! Bring lots of water and wear good shoes. Riomaggiore is also beautiful, Corniglia is the one town I'd pass up if you're strapped for town, it's the smallest and least picturesque by far - no sea views.

If you're up for a day trip outside of Rome, Orvieto is about 50 minutes on the train outside of Rome in Umbria. Take the funiculare tram up to the top of Orvieto, they're known for their architecture and white wine, it's a lazy little piazza, people watching kind of town. Very charming.

Enjoy!
