In Italy: Rome, Florence and Venice14

Posted on September 7, 2009 by ChristieTravel Stories

Alfredo & Ada's Rome: Pasta

We made it to Italy!

We were in Rome for 4 nights which was absolutely wonderful and made even better by the insider tips we got from our mate Douglas from Icon Tours.

You’ll hear all about it in posts coming soon, including:

We’re now in Florence for another 4 nights before heading to Venice, just in time for the film Festival. Toy Story is playing in 3D – should I go see it? Perhaps after an Italian film ;)

I still haven’t posted loads of stories from Istanbul and we’ve just gone through Budapest for a few days to visit my Hungarian Nagy Mama (grandmother). We had a delicious traditional meal and yes, I took lots of photos!

OK, I’m off to get some gelati, chat to you soon.

Ciao, Christie x
