Itching for Italy

It’s that time of year—I’ve got an itch that needs scratching. The travel bug has bitten, and we’re off. This time, we’re itching for Italy.

As much as we like to travel and as often as we go to Europe, we’ve yet to step foot in Italy. From what we’ve read and seen, it’s going to be a full and rich experience.

In Venice, we’ll get around the Grand Canal by gondola and visit St. Mark’s Basilica and Square. We’ll visit the Gallerie dell’Accademia and cross both under and over the Bridge of Sighs.

In Florence, we’ll peer into the eyes of Michalangelo’s David at the Galleria dell’Accademia, stroll through the Piazza della Signoria, and visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore.

In Rome … where to begin? The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Roman Forum.  

And Vatican City’s St. Peter’s Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Museums, maybe even a meeting with the Pope.

As a bonus, we’ll be spending a day in Casablanca, Morocco on the way there, where we’ll fortify ourselves with mint tea and strong coffee before visiting the Mohammad II Mosque and heading for Italy.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks for pictures and posts along the way at www.Facebook.com/EricDGoodman!
