Here is part 2 of our Italy trip. After Venice we traveled down to Florence, drove out to Tuscany, to the coast and up to Pisa and back to Florence. From Florence we took a train to Rome.
San Gimignano (below)
We weren't the only ones trying to take self portraits at the leaning tower.
An unexpected part of Rome - the cats! They are all vaccinated and fixed by an animal rescue group in the city. They may be homeless, but they are certainly well taken care of and well fed!
The necessary tourist photo in front of the Colosseum. On the right is Vatican City.
Jeff and the Circus Maximus.
The sites and the scenery were incredible - I just wish I could adequately describe the food and wine portion of our trip! Meats, cheeses, pastas, seafood... too many amazing meals to mention. If you ever get the chance to check out Italy, I highly recommend it! I'm already planning the places I want to see when I get the chance to go back!
