8 days in northern italy should include cinque terre

Spectacular Italy is always high on travel bucket lists and it’s easy to see why! Italy is the birthplace of the Renaissance. Fine art will take your breath away.

In addition, Italy is a feast for your stomach. Meticulous wines, aged cheeses, handmade pastas, savory meats, and more! Food addicts will fall deeply in love with all Italy has to offer. 

I have Italian heritage. I even could apply for an Italian passport! And, luckily, I live on the East Coast of the United States and have access to flights to multiple cities in Italy. Without a doubt, this is a country I will return to time and time again.

Feel free to contact me with questions about Italy.
