Trip to Italy



We are planning a much long-awaited trip to Italy. It's been 7 years since our last and only visit and to say we are excited at the thought of returning is an understatement!
Our plans include Rome, Amalfi and Venice! I think I'm most excited for Venice since we had to cancel that leg of our trip before. I'm going to keep a log here of all the places I need to remember to go.

I really want to see Ravello and Atrani while on the Amalfi Coast. So if you happen to drop by and have any suggestions. Please leave a comment!

This is a place in Ravello that looks out of this world! Perhaps we can go for dinner and just to walk the grounds. I can't wait.

Oooooooh I am so jealous! You're going to the most beautiful place in the world.... which I wouldn't know, of course, as I haven't been to too many places, but at least you're going to the place I love the most.

I know I am so excited. It's a bit exhausting doing all of this research...but that's what I do, I'm a planner.

Have you been to Venice, Annika? I need some suggestions. Also, in regards to the Amalfi area, I need to send you the place we are thinking of staying and see you think it's good.

Annika-
Here is the place in Amalfi.

Do you think it's a good spot? It's something we can afford which makes a huge difference.

No, never been to Venice... not yet! It's on my to see list though :)

I don't know if you know, but I've actually only spent a couple of hours in Amalfi so I'm sure there are others who are better suited to give you good advice. However, that hotel looks interesting - great location, nice rooms, very affordable... I'd go for it if I were you! If you do, please let me know what you think afterwards, I'm looking for a place where we can stay on our next trip!
