Italy Trip Summer 2015!

This past summer we had the opportunity to visit Italy once again and our trip did not disappoint!

Venice was an amazing experience. We walked the streets of Venice with the our friends and traversed the canals with ease while captivated by how beautiful each little piazza was. 

We loved the island of Murano where we saw a live demonstration of Venetian glass blowing. 
The kids took in the magnitude of the bridge of sighs and were especially thrilled to feed the pigeons in San Marco Square. 

The kids seemed to really be mesmerized by our gondola ride and riding back in style in a Venetian water taxi.

Pino Teresi took us on an informative full day wine tour in Tuscany where we visited Montepulciano, Pienza and Castello Banfi.
We also found time to visit Assisi, Orvieto, Cortona, Siena, Umbertide, Lake Trasimeno and Gubbio.

One of the highlights of the trip was when Chefs Elizabetta & Paola ( brought their Tuscan/Umbrian culinary expertise to teach the kids how to make a complete Italian meal for everyone. The kids made Tiramisu, fresh pasta (from scratch), caprese and bruschetta which was served to everyone for a truly enjoyable and memorable outdoor dinner. 

We finished up our trip with a couple days in Rome where we met some more friends for dinner, crepes & gelato.

It was a very full and enjoyable vacation!

Over the next couple of weeks we will be posting some of our pictures, slideshows, travel tips and thoughts about our trip.....
