I usually travel with my husband and daughter. We live simply so that we can take as many vacations as possible. We love to eat good, local food and we are suckers for good pizza and steak.
Hi Raquel. I have traveled to Italy in late November numerous times and I love it! The crowds are not as bad (although, you will be surprised at how busy the popular sights are), and the weather is not too bad. Starting in the North you will want a w... See More
When I am traveling, I say the name of the country or city the way the locals say it; but, my question is for when I am home.When you are back home, do you say the name of the city the way the locals do or not?While I'm not likely to call it Fire... See More
This will be an amazing trip! You are hitting my three favorite areas in Italy. :) I agree with Mary that your itinerary is doable in your time-frame and also that trains are the way to go (with one caveat). I would caution against using the Circumve... See More

The Georgia Aquarium is wonderful! It is huge and has a large tunnel of glass that you walk through (or stand on the people mover), and the fish, sharks, etc. swim above you. The rest of the aquarium is great, too. We have also enjoyed the Center For... See More
What a fantastic opportunity for you!For your first trip to Italy, I would highly suggest the first camp. As I've read somewhere before, Italy intensifies the farther south you travel. Some people love that, others not so much. I really enjoy Naples ... See More
