Italian Countryside

Sitting on the Mediterranean, Italy is a jewel, that most people already know about. Going to Italy feeds so much emotion and typically always comes with great reward. Having now been to Italy twice (not enough), it is hard to say what is my favorite part of this country that seeks so much attention on a global scale. People love Italy. It is an icon of our time. Just admit it, everyone loves good pizza and pasta. But Italy is so much more.

Southern Tuscany

Rome in itself contains 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 in to Italy is that every corner you go, you find the same attitude, the same love for this country, and typically good food too (I think I mentioned we all love good Pizza and Pasta, right?).

Wine in Central Italy

On my second trip to Italy, we decided to hit many spots we had not yet been before. Having already been to many of the well known tourist areas, such as Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence, Pisa, Tuscany, and Amalfi, we made our hitlist. We decided to go to the “less travelled” wine country of Southern Tuscany, a quick stop in Umbria on the way to Sibillini National Park, and then go 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 hike to Lake Sorapis. We saw only a few and really got the best of what hiking in the Dolomites is about. High mountains, impressive cliffs, via ferrata routes, and stunning alpine lakes.
