So after several months of planning, my trip to Italy seems to have flown by. Seriously, where does time go?
I had an awesome time and I’m sad to be home. It was really cool to visit 5 cities in Italy, use Italian trains and public transport, take lots of day trips. I feel like I’ve had a productive and successful trip!
Before my trip, I wrote a post that was kinda like a wish list or to do list. Here it is with things crossed off or added! Anything in Italics I’ve added since!
- See The Last Supper at Santa Maria della Grazie (stupid me didn’t realise you needed to prebook tickets at least a day in advance!)
Climb the Dumo
Visit Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II Stalk George Clooney at Lake Como Eat lots of ice cream Spin on the bulls balls! Visit Castello Sforzesco
- Go in a gondola (I refuse to pay 80 euros for this)
Visit Piazza San Marco & St Mark’s basilica, Doge palace etc Visit Murano and/or Burano
- Go up the campanile
Visit the Peggy Guggenheim collection Eat lots of pizza
Go up the duomo
Visit other Tuscan cities(Siena/Pisa/ Lucca) Pitti Palace Get lots of nice photos of Florence, the rooftops, the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio Eat lots of pasta Visit Piazza Michaelangelo
- Visit Piazza Bellini
Visit Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius Visit Amalfi coast (if time) Visit Capri

It was a fun trip and I’ll be writing lots of blog posts about it. For now here’s a few pictures!
