    Cinque Terre, Italy

    Cinque Terre 8

    This pandemic has made me appreciate all the travels I have been able to do in the past and the beautiful countries I’ve visited. Italy is no doubt on top of the list of my favorite countries. The food, the wine, the language, the terrain, the beaches – everything is just so mesmerizing and looks like it’s right out of a  painting. It’s quite unfortunate how hard they’ve been hit and what they’re going through. My thoughts and prayers are with the country and I will definitely be making a trip to Italy to support their tourism industry once all this is over.

    I visited Cinque Terre as part of my 10 day Italy trip 2 years ago. Read about my travels in Venice and Florence as well. Cinque Terre was my third stop during my Italian adventure. It’s a string of colorful seaside villages on the Italian Riviera and has 5 main villages.

    Florence, Italy in 2 Days

    Florence 23Hi there travelers,

    Sorry this took a while. I promise I will try and be more regular with my blogposts. I am still working on my blog series about my travels in Italy. If you haven’t yet, read my blogpost on Venice to learn a little about the city and what I did there. My next stop was Florence,  one of my favorite cities in Italy. I just loved all the history and culture associated with it. I’ve become obsessed with the Medici’s and I binge watched the entire series (Medici: Masters of Florence) on Netflix before I went here. That made my trip even more enjoyable as I was able to relate to the history and art associated with each place I visited and really appreciate the context and underlying stories. The Medici’s were one of the richest families and  Florentine bankers who contributed significantly to the development of the city through their patronage and sponsorship of the arts.

I went there a couple of weeks ago and covered Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre and Milan while driving to Pisa and Portofino on the way. Let’s start with how to spend 2 days in Venice.
