We had an amazing trip to Italy, I wish we were still there! We got to spend a week in Rome, followed by two days in Venice. We drank lots and lots of wonderful red wine and had all sorts of fantastic food. We walked lots and lots and fit in as much as we possibly could while we were there. We went with our friends Brett, Amber, Kathy and Zach and we all shared a three bedroom apartment just down the street front the Colosseum. I am so glad we were able to get away from work to go (and that we both were able to avoid e-mail the entire trip)!
As soon as we got to Rome. We were lucky this was the only day that it rained.

After a failed attempt to take a wine tour. We were able to arrange for a driver/tour guide to take us to Tuscany last minute. We spent the day in the southern Tuscany town of Masse Marittima, where our guide had a friend that showed us around. It was so beautiful! We started with a private wine tasting, followed by lunch (the same owner had the wine shop and restaurant). We then headed to Baratti beach to check out the Mediterranean Sea. We finished off the day at the Populonia castle.

We finished up our amazing trip with two days in Venice. Just like everyone said, it is easy to get lost there! Lucky for us we weren't on a schedule and didn't have anywhere we had to be.
