Since I am half-Italian, I always wanted to visit Italy one day. Mostly, I wanted to visit it with my grandmother Palumbo who has never been there but always wanted to go. I tried convincing her to go with us but she doesn't want to leave my grandfather. My grandfather hates travelling and isn't feeling all that well so she told us not to wait for her and go on our own but take lots of photos! Vicki and I heard excellent reviews of Perillo Tours and decided to check it out. Unfortunately, we tried to book the trip in July and there was no availability. We got on a waiting list but then we weren't sure what the probability was that someone would cancel. We called back to ask that question and the lady on the other line asked us when we wanted to go and low and behold, there were two seats available! We jumped at the opportunity (literally, I was jumping up and down with the phone next to my ear giving my credit card info while my yellow lab was barking up a frenzy since he never seen me like that before!) and we were off on our way three months later! This isn't so much of a blog but I did take a boatload of photos and carefully labeled each and every one that made it on this travelblog. Please click on each one since there may be more than just the title.

Day 1 - Leaving Norfolk for our trip to Italy!

Looks like we have company as we pack.

No, Symba, you have to stay home. Sorry buddy!

Quick, some photos of us at the airport. Yes, we are lame but we are excited!

Hi. I just happened upon your travel blog. We are planning a trip to Italy this October, almost the same time of your trip. I just wanted to ask how was the weather? I know it has been several years, but just wanted to ask.
