Italian Countryside

Sitting on the Mediterranean, Italy is a jewel, that most people already know about. Going to Italy brings with it so much emotion and let us not forget all the amazing food. Having now been twice (not enough), it is hard to say what is my favorite part of this country. People love it for good reason. Just admit it, everyone loves good pizza and pasta. But there is so much more.

Southern Tuscany

 

Rome in itself has enough things to do to make this country such an amazing place to visit. Ruins, history, art, architecture, culture, food, and so on. What pulled me into Italy is that every corner you go, you find the same attitude, the same love for this country, and great food (I think I mentioned we all love good pizza and pasta, right?).

Wine in Central Tuscany

 

On my second trip, we decided to go to some places we had not yet been before. Having visited many of the known tourist areas, such as Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Tuscany, and Amalfi, we created a hit list. We decided to go to the “less traveled” wine country of Southern Tuscany, a quick stop in Umbria on the way to Sibillini National Park, and then go up to the mountains up in the Dolomites.

The Dolomites were my favorite part of this trip, really bringing a great combination of natural beauty as well as some solitude on our favorite hike, Lake Sorapis. We saw only a few people and really got the best of what hiking in the Dolomites is about. High mountains, impressive cliffs, via ferrata routes, and one of the most stunning alpine lakes in Europe.
