Italy July 1-5 2016

Arriving in Venice via boat – feeling like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp in The Tourist:


Thank goodness for Google maps making navigation of the winding streets of Venice possible. 

We played tourist at Piazza San Marco, explored the Peggy Guggenheim museum and window shopped.


We had a lovely dinner one night at Anice Stellato, a slow food restaurant in a book borrowed from Lewis. Met a nice couple from SF. Sat next to a woman with the best cat dress and cat iPhone case. Here’s a sunset pic from our walk that evening…


View from our lovely apartment in the Dosoduro neighborhood…


Then we hopped a fast train to Florence to discover an even more stunning view…


We’re getting the hang of this travel thing and made it out to another slow food dinner spot – Al Tranvai. The best bruschetta, sausage pasta, grilled steak, tiramisu and chocolate mousse. Excellent house white too.


Then a late night walk through the Piazza Della Signora. Warm nights, lots of people, magical lighting…


Day 2 in Florence included more walking, eating and window shopping I do love the Santa Maria Novella. And cats.
