Best of Italy 2015

This is a bit belated, but we wanted to thank our 2015 "travel family" for giving us the opportunity to show them the Best of Italy. It was an honor to travel with such wonderful people, and we look forward to the next adventure. We've posted a few pictures commemorating our journey, and we've uploaded some videos as well on our YouTube channel. From Rome, to breathtaking Sorrento, to Tuscany/ Florence, onward to the stunning Dolomites, and ending in Venice, these memories will last us ALL a lifetime.
