Italy was everything we were hoping for and more. We’re probably not the first people to think this, after all, it does have one of the largest tourist economies in the world. For good reason, too! The culture, history, landscape, and food…they’re all incredible. For us, it’s not a question of if we’ll go back, but rather when we’ll go back. We feel like we’ve just scratched the surface that is this great beautiful peninsula!
Reflecting on our trip, our favorite parts weren’t necessarily the most iconic places but rather the times when we could feel like we were in Italy…not the forced manufactured version that caters to unassuming tourists. We especially enjoyed our time in Milan and Lake Como with Becca’s friend from high school, Carlotta. We were able to spend Easter weekend with her friends and family, enjoying great meal after great meal. Our day trip to Lucca and Pisa was also a highlight for us. Biking around Lucca and enjoying the gorgeous landscape of Tuscany is a time we’ll look back on with fond memories.
I’m happy to share with you our trip in motion picture. I loved filming it! Now, enjoy five-hundred video clips compressed into 3 ½ minutes! And don’t forget to turn the “HD” on! 🙂
