Our Italian Holiday

In Europe they call it a holiday, here we call it a vacation. Holiday just sounds sooo good! The beginning of March, me & the hubs went to Roma, Firenze & Venezia as the Italians say it [otherwise known as Rome, Florence & Venice]. We had a grand old time of course. A little chilly for me, we got drunk on Grappa & Limoncello, went carb overload on brick oven pepperoni pizzas [absolutely fresh ingredients] & drank espresso, cappucinos & lattes like it’s our last [they absolutely have the best coffee]. And no….I’m not a gelato lover so I stayed away from them.We are still using non-professional cameras so these pics are not the best. Good or not, they hold so many memories…

Clockwise from top left: Had to try a hot chocolate at Cafe Florian, it was Carnevale in Venezia, the oldest casino [it did look like Casino Royale], at the market, St. Mark’s Square.

The Duomo, David at the Accademia [it was not allowed to take pictures…oh well!], at the Arno bridge.
The Pantheon, en route to the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican Museum, Colloseum, Trevi Fountain [they totally copied the one from Caesar’s Palace in Vegas].

We can’t wait to come back. For some reason, Jason said he is open to the possibility of living in Italy, hmmm…..

About Maureen

Details are my passion. From curating vignettes to designing spaces. I thrive in finding the finds and just discovered the art of collecting...all while sipping on a cafe au lait & a french macaroon in hand.
