I finally visited Italy this year. It was an amazing trip. I spent 3 days in Venice, 4 in Florence, and 5 in Rome. Florence and Rome could have used a week or more on their own. Florence was really cool, especially because I watched Davinci’s Demons.
Many of the historical names and facts were interesting to see in context. The Medici Palace was very largest and ornate. It amazes me how much effort Italians make to blend the historical architecture with new buildings. I also found that the pizza somehow tastes better there and there is a gelato shop on every street corner.
