I’ve decided that one of my most favorite places in Italy is Venice. It really is a city on water: no cars, no buses, just boats and carts. Literally, everything from public transportation (water taxis and vaporettos) to ambulances and fire “boats” to all things commerce is centered around water. The concept itself was hard to grasp coming from a place where cars are a part of everyday life.

What would a trip to Rome be without a little sightseeing? Up bright and early, I made like a tourist and toured the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel before the crowds. In addition, I was able to see and learn about the Pantheon as well as the Colosseum. Our tour guide, Salvatore, made many references to the movie Angels and Demons during our tour, so of course I had to later watch the movie, which was even more enjoyable being that I had been to many of the featured locations! Here are some photos from my travels.
Ciao a tutti! Yesterday I arrived in Rome after an eight hour flight. After a quick (well, three hour) nap I headed down the Spanish Steps to take in my shopping opportunities. Right at my finger tips were Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Longchamp, Dolce & Gabanna, and many other designers. Dinner was at the hotel, but dessert was out on the town for some authentic gelato of course!
Firstly, I must apologize for my blogging hiatus, SAT subject tests will do that to you! I am writing from the JFK airport about to embark on my adventure to Europe…our first stop being Rome.
