OK, so in actually less than one week I'll be in Italy! I'm so excited. I still can't believe I'm going to Italy when there's the money and the kids and the husband and the daily responsibilities... Who just drops everything and goes to Italy for a week? Me. That's who. My husband is actually taking the week off work just so I can go frollicking about Europe with some girlfriends like I don't have a care in the world. Trust me, I am so grateful to be taking a trip like this for no good reason at all, especially when my family is making so many concessions for me to do so. If you haven't figured it out by now, my husband is pretty amazing. I am very, very lucky.
Our itinerary is set--fly into Venice, then 2 days in Cinque Terra, then 2 days in Rome and back to Venice. My trip is only a week total, so we're trying to walk that delicate balance of seeing a lot but not too much. We have a few things on our to-do list, but we're also trying to leave it a little loosey-goosey as well.
I'd love to hear any travel trips from you Italy vetrans out there. If you've been to any of those 3 cities, what were your must-sees and don't-miss sites? Any great restaurants or good food tips would be appreciated. Also, I don't speak a lick of Italian, should I be worried?
