It was a family trip to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday, we spent an amazing week on the Amalfi Coast with the whole family. The other two weeks my husband and I spent travelling around. I couldn't help myself and I of course brought treasures back for the store. Stay tuned to see our new finds!
Our trip kicked off in Milan, considered its the industrial center of Italy it boasts Europe's biggest University and Italy's biggest populations. Besides being the fashion capital it boast some beautiful architecture.

Then we were off to Venice! I had visited before but it was my husbands first visit. How could he be disappointed? Venice is lovely and busy so it's best to visit early spring. Did I mention it's also once of the most expensive place in Italy to visit. If you are feeling flush you can spend 40 Euros to enjoy a cappuccino and croissant while listening to a classical quartet in the square!

From Florence we took the train into Naples it's a crazy city and we were grateful to be picked up and driven to the Amalfi by our mini bus driver. We stayed in a lovely hotel in Priano but the main feature was the view!
How cool is this? The Italy bike tour went past our hotel!
After the Amalfi we took the train into Rome. I had visited before but it was my husbands first visit and it did not disappoint. It's hard to wrap your head around a busy city bustling around ancient ruins.
Clearly I had an amazing time in Italy, it was hard to say Ciao but I am already looking forward to our next visit.
