The room we were in had a tiny bathroom with a strang shower and was on a busy street, however, the buffet breakfast included in the price was amazing.

Hi mom!! Haven't had wifi in a while so sorry about the lack of updates. I'm on the train to Rome right now, but have been enjoying myself in Italy thus far. Florence was really great, from the food to the history. I visited several of the cites that are in the book "Inferno" that I read this summer. My friends are sick of me pointing out places that the fictional character, Robert Langdon, trekked through in Florence and Venice. It is a ...

As the ship left port we had a cocktail on our verandah, then went up on deck for a Mediterranean barbecue.
... By this time it was actually getting very warm, so we sat in the taxi to cool down. Driving in Italy is...interesting for want of a better word. Scary is more apt maybe. 2 lanes becomes 3 plus one for scooters, with cars squeezing in where they can, buses pulling out infront, cars pulling infront of buses and each other, driving on the other side of the road when there's no cars coming because they saw a gap big enough for them further up the line of traffic. Breathtaking in ...
